Its a hootenanny! Fried Chicken, DJANGO LASSI, the CRYBABIES Duo, CLARK NOVA, LAURA BEAN AND THE VAGABONDS, Vintage vinyl dancin’ tunes from DJ ROCKIN’ REB MOKUM, other special special guests (its a surprise!), BEDLAM and SHENANIGANS and as always the delightfully intoxicated Miss Laura Bean!
BAZAAR and FRIED CHICKEN starts at 7:00 in the Courtyard at Heimathafen, with lots of strange characters and special goods, tonics and potions from the backwoods of Berlin.
Show III opens on April 30, 2010 from 19:00-22:00. The third exhibition at MMX will run from May 1-May 28 and will be ever changing and evolving throughout the duration of the show.
The third show at MMX expands out of the ground floor rooms and into the garden and back courtyard. Tobias Sternberg from Sweden is bringing back the dead with his life size sculptures of extinct animals. The garden at MMX will be transforming over the next months with the work of Mr. Sternberg’s interactive piece Schadensorge and also by Canadian Cedric Bomford. Bomford will be building one of his fantastical constructions that will snake across the front of the garden.
Inside, Veronika Schumacher continues to push the boundaries of what she started in Show II, her decadent and bipolar wallpaper will engulf the entire room this time. David Krepfle’s sculptures are dually humorous and mischievous as their visual color play bounces around the room. Screening program III is curated by the MMX directors.
Ingrid Roe’s Tomorrow Never Comes premiers in Europe, referring to the false promises of easy remedies and new utopias that never (and will never) come to pass, promises made in politics as well as in commercial advertising. In the Hinterhof, Michael Ebert presents his installation Stiller, a continuation of his minimalistic approaches using a piano string, connecting the underground to greater heights. New Zealander, Julian Oliver bends the reality of what we see and what we might have missed with his virtual alterations to the real.
Karol Slowik from Poland will install his glowing sculpture Immaculate Conception, a massive sculpture hovering in the dark waiting for the viewer to find it. Circadian, the light therapy room installation will remain open for the first 2 weeks of Show III and then will hibernate for the warmer seasons.
Chilean pop trio Samanta perform Opening night.
MMX strives to bring people and art together by presenting exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, musical and dance performances, and unique weekly events. For more information please check out www.mmx.mx
Actually we are in Thailand already. And BERLIN LOVES YOU loves Thailand. Despite the “political” situation here right now which isn`t as it is presented in the international media we are working hard doing photoshoots with Thai children that came from Bangkok to flee the crazyness with their parents for the weekend. After having a great Thai BBQ last night we did a little sunrise shoot at 6am this morning (after which I went straight back to bed). So have fun with the pictures.
After talking to many Thais from the South and from Bangkok I have to say that this political situation is an artificial construct by the former premier Thaksin who pretty much fooled the whole country and became a very rich man (i.e. by selling a sattelite which was paid for with tax money to Singapore and keeping the money for himself). He uses this money to pay many poor Thais and other asian nationalities living and working in Thailand to demonstrate for him. They get up to 500 Baht a day which is a little more than 10 Euros / US$ and a lot of money here considerung a university grad earns about 200-300 US$ per month. And with the amount of money he has he can pay a long time. However this is not supported bei the majority of the Thai population. They support the military, the current premier as well as the King.
So anyone of you thinking about coming here: Please do so! Its a great country with great people and great food – not even mentioning the weather and the beaches. Mind Bangkok these days but go for it once Thaksin is out of money or died of cancer (which many people here believe thats why he is doing it because he is dieing soon).
So don`t believe the hype and go for some smart action like in this picture:
