Update, August 28:
The surprise guests for Sophie Hunger‘s huge headliner performance at Halle am Berghain later tonight are…
Tobias Jundt of Bonaparte and Käptn Peng!
The two will join our festival blogger on stage. There are a very few tickets left – better hurry! For istance, the talk with New Order’s Bernard Sumner and Dave Haslam at Berghain-Garderobe is already sold out.
Alec Empire has fell ill (Get well soon, Alec!) and hence can not attend his talk at Schlackehalle with Dieter Gorny, Anne Haffmans, and – as a guest – Heiko Maas. Daniel Meteo will replace him. Please, find the whole updated info here.
The SPEX session on representation and gender in pop got a new line-up. (Talk will be held in German!) Editor-in-chief Torsten Groß will now sit down with activist, author and musician Sandra Grether, label manager Anne Haffmans, lyricist and musician Balbina and former Femen-activist Theresa Lehmann (»Hinter den Brüsten«) at Midnight at Schlackehalle. Ronja von Rönne sadly had to cancel. All details here.
Update, August 25:
»I don’t wanna die« – »Victoria«-director Sebastian Schipper transfers his own movie into a new dimension for Pop-Kultur. On Wednesday at Midnight and at Schlackehalle he will host a very special, interactive screening of »Victoria«, deconstructing the relation between image and sound. Until someone dies… or not. The event will be held in German, further details here.
A few hours earlier Berghain will see the world premiere of another movie called »Emocean«. The band Fenster, who is the creative DIY powerhouse behind this piece, will screen and perform it in an unique movie-concert-performance which will take a bit longer than originally planned. Since we don’t want to cut a movie we’ve moved the Fenster gig to 7.40 pm to 8.40 (instead of 9 pm to 9.40). Hence, Hinds will now appear on the Berghain stage from 9 pm to 9.40. The rest of the schedule including Owen Pallett & stargaze, Wooden Wisdom & DJ Fitz, Isolation Berlin, Inga Copeland, Lapalux among others stays as previously announced and can be found here.
