Kiez Hören Moabit (Hearing the Kiez of Moabit) is a long-term research project in collaboration with sound-artists Guillermo Lares and Klaus Hamlescher, with an aim to describe and archive transformation of district Moabit using the sound as primary media. By introducing sound-cartography, sound-walks and sound-performances, Moabit City Garden has been turn into the hearing station with diverse audience, spatial characteristics and climate conditions.

3 main events showed multilayered sound condition of this particular space at the border of calm Kiez and heavy industry.

Made in Omnitopia_Meaningful interaction without words

Last week we hosted performance Made in Omnitopia, work of Paula Marie Hildebrandt and Natalie Fari.

The concept of Omnitopia, originally coined by American scholar Andrew Wood, provided a theoretical starting point and practical framework for the performance project Made In Omnitopia-Berlin 2013, serious of performative interactions without words.

After testing their concept inside Fitness Centre, Mall and Wireless bubble, two artists decided to incorporate Kiosk-situation into series of performances to document the process through which places become Omnitopia.

LOCAL MAPPING_Moabit Citygarden_Mapping MPA-B 2013

In attempt to create ‘deep map’ of Moabiter Stadtgarten, we have a chance to map ephemeral present of 7 looped performances during the Month of Performance Art 2013.

Curated by Atelier Obra Viva, this collective appropriation of the public park (and to a certain extent ZKU building) produced many unexpected interactions and erased the line between spectator and performer.

Mapping process focused on two socio-spatial relations of the artist and park; initially as a site-responsive interpretation of existing ‘over-designed’ space and finally as a part of collective-body (that includes audience) during the group slow-walks.
