ERIK RUIN @ FEHRE 6

AUXXX + REDWIG present:

ERIK RUIN's NEW PERFORMANCE: LONG/GONE



FRIDAY 13 APRIL @ 21:00

FEHRE 6
Fehrbelliner Str. 6
10119 BERLIN Prenzlauerberg

Over 100 feet in length, LONG/GONE is a single intricately-cut piece of paper created by artist Erik Ruin, who has been lauded by the New York Times for his “spell-binding cut-paper animations.” The piece flows freely from image to image, while narratives and scenarios (often drawn from classic works of literature from Homer to Dante) emerge, collapse, and spill over and into each other. Philly Voice calls it “stark, intricate and wondrous – Ruin’s paper-cut art combines the enthralling fantasy of a storybook with the prismatic, fragmented beauty of a stained-glass window.” In performance, Ruin scrolls the paper-cut continually across the surface of an overhead projector, creating an epic and immersive shadow-show.

LIVE MUSIC:

JOKE LANZ - turntables

Joke says:

"We need more films like 'Themroc', more rebellion against a dull and capitalist society and more courage to break down inhibitions. Destruction as a conscious creative fragmentation of bodies, ideas, opinions, music, language and institutions. Against stupidity, satiety, intolerance, provincialism, against the cowardice to bear responsibility, against the sack that eats at the front and shits at the back."

AUXXX + BROTFABRIK present

Cinesthesia Screen Concert 003

THURSDAY 25 JANUARY 2018 @ 21:00

FILM: HÄXAN

Sweden 1922 | 107 minutes | Silent film with live music | D: Benjamin Christensen

Benjamin Christensen's silent film "Häxan" (1922) was very ahead of its time and is a remarkable work in film history. A world history of mysticism and especially witchcraft is portrayed in seven chapters which struggle to differentiate between clarification, speculation and exploitation of the subject.

LIVE MUSIC:

BORIS HAUF - keyboards, electronics
ALEX JEZDINSKY - drums

Alex and Boris play in the legendary Austrian rock band Naked Lunch. "Häxan" was Williams Burrough's favourite movie. They will be using his original narration throughout the screening.
