Der flüsternde Raum

(The Wispering Room) is a Sound Art project with Natascha Nikeprelevic, Holger Mertin, Joseph Suchy and ‘The Knob, The Finger & The It’. The artists produce Sound Art and Experimental Space Music and have to deal with the very special acoustic conditions of the architecture of the chirch St. Gertrud, built by architect Gottfried Böhm in the 1960s. Collaboration with Andrés Krause.

3. Kunstfestival Strom

The 3rd Art Festival Strom was devoted to the ephemeral in art. More than 40 artists working in the fields of installation art, sound art, noise, film, performance and dance were invited to show their work at Kunsthaus Rhenania in Cologne. The artists presented on more than 500 sqm in free artist studios, the outside space and the exhibition hall of the artist studio house. The shown works deal with the matter of time, either conceptionally or within the chosen material, as through light, digital image and sound. Furthermore the curator developed a stage program with around 15 concerts and performances with new forms of electronic and new music and a cinema in the upstairs roof space showed longplay films of the last two editions of Videonale e.V. Bonn. Plus parties and guided tours.
