Fresh new season is on: exhibition openings, multimedia shows, festivals, parties, DIY flea markets are just some of the ways to make these sunkissed September days even lovelier.
20.00 Transduction @ Berghain
WHY: Transduction is a multimedia concert that will satisfy those who are thirsty for experimental sights and sounds. Continuing the collaboration that began in 2012 with Perspective Matters, ensemble mosaik and Thomas Fiedler have teamed up once more for Transduction, premiered recently as a part of 47. Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik. It is always a great idea to experience a different kind of fun at Berghain, and these two evenings of films paired up with new music certainly should not be missed.

19.00 Rui Calçada Bastos - Passagem de Nível @ Invaliden1
WHY: In his exhibition "Passagem de Nível" (Level Crossing), Rui Calçada Bastos presents a set of works that have as their main motif an itinerary guided by chance. Indiscipline, accident, absurdity, disfunctionality - these word extracted from a text written by the curator Joao Silvério give a general direction, while keeping us curious to find out more. And for that, we will visit the opening and catch up with the artist. Needless to say - we recommend you to do the same.

19.00 We Animals – Biographies @ Meinblau Projektraum
WHY: How do animals create individual history? The works in this exhibition focus on abilities and characteristics of animals, and follow their (auto)biographical tracks. Through different recording media such as historical texts, sound and video documentation, and collections of traces, the artworks revolve around questions of nonverbal communication, shared authorship, and animal biographies.
