Inside MPhil – St. Nikolai

St. Nikolai Kirche Innere Wiener Straße 1München,

The Munich Philharmonic, the orchestra of the city - on the meadow behind the chapel St. Nikolai near the Gasteig. It plays when you want, you can move in it as you want.

Kunsthalle München Theatinerstraße 8, München, Bayern

8-12 July 2019, pedestrian zone in front of the Kunsthalle Munich: There, a homeless person appears in the midst of lustfully shopping, well dressed people. In the hopelessness of her existence, she transfigures everything ordinary into art. Sounds from her memory fit into an orchestration of the urban sound space. Everything she hears becomes a global song in which, like Wagner's Isolde, she finds redemption through death and resurrection in love.

RE:ECM @ Storage, Seoul

Storage by Hyundai Card in Seoul 248, Itaewon-ro, Yongsan-guSeoul (B2F),

In this group exhibition at Storage by Hyundai Card in Seoul, six artists reflect on the meanwhile 50-year-old oeuvre of the record label ECM Records. Instead of - as the poster suggests - presenting relics and devotional objects from the history of ECM, we try to pour the meaning and effects that ECM has had and still has on our work and life into our own artistic positions.

HochX Entenbachstr. 37München,

Emre Akal and his team ask for it, starting from an omnipresent end time mood: What comes after the imaginable future, after the collapse of liberal democracy and old Europe as we knew it? In a formally abstract world of images, they let the future rub against the past, dig the people of tomorrow in the rubble of memory in order to create the design of a society for tomorrow from the ruins of the past - always remembering: What are we leaving behind as society today, the people of the future, and will we have learned from our mistakes? What remains of... us?
