Program in February

01. February - 29. February 2020

In a time of rapid technological change, in a world of advancing populism, of trials and tribulations between lies and revelations, and the fear of wars and climate catastrophes, the potential inherent in the individual wish deserves all the more attention. For the change of grievances does not begin with acquired knowledge and certain skillsets, but first and foremost with the desire to change something. For this reason, the Museum Angewandte Kunst invites visitors to the exhibition Ingrid Godon. I wish and thereby enter a space of possibility that not only bears the potential to reflect on one’s own wishes, but above all creates atmospheres that encourage discussion and self-determination.
The selected illustrations by the internationally renowned artist Ingrid Godon serve as the starting point for this reflection. Together with texts by award-winning poet Toon Tellegen, Godon’s images of the faces of serious children, wistful men and thoughtful women open a door for our imagination. Between the wall illustrations and originals by the Belgian artist, a diverse range of sounds, music, performances and workshops invite visitors to explore, linger and wander. The entire museum is transformed into a lively and pulsating, yet quiet and contemplative Open House.

YACHT (an acronym for “Young Americans Challenging High Technology”) is Claire L. Evans, Jona Bechtolt, and Rob Kieswetter. For their latest LP, Chain Tripping, the trio invented their own working method at the intersection of DIY and high-tech: they used neural networks to generate raw musical data from their prior work, which they arranged into new songs that they then learned, performed, and recorded live. Rather than rely on a single tool, they brought together several distinct AI processes: text generation (Char-RNN), latent space interpolation, raw audio generation (SampleRNN), and a “neural synthesizer” called the NSynth. They were inspired by the long history of generative composition, from William S. Burroughs’ cut-up writing to David Bowie’s custom “Verbasizer” software from the ‘90s.

On the occasion of the exhibition Ingrid Godon. I wish and the associated event series OPEN HOUSE, Chef Anton de Bruyn came up with a special concept for the rooms of the Museum Angewandte Kunst. In an eleven meter wide installation consisting of two concentric circles, he opens his temporary EL BARRIO Gasthaus. While the kitchen is installed in the inner ring, the guests sit at the large round table in the outer circle. It doesn’t get any closer to the kitchen. The head chef has invited two young chefs from the Rhein-Main area to share this unusual location with him. It starts with Dennis Aukili, who is involved in two successful restaurants in Frankfurt, the Chairs in Bornheim and Mehlwassersalz in the Museum MMK für Moderne Kunst. Paul Schmiel, head chef of the Pankratiushof, an innovative family business in its fifth generation, will cook on the second evening of the Gasthaus. On March 11th, Anton de Bruyn himself will be behind the stove.

Menu:
8 courses € 89; Beverage accompaniment from the Cool Climate wine shop € 49

Architecture:
Sabina Eivazova and Uwe Fischer

Women in Jazz – A Study on disappearance

Thomas Meinecke brings records from jazz musicians from the 1940s to the 1970s to the Museum Angewandte Kunst and tells their stories. In it he describes, among other things, the frustration of female musicians who hardly occur or disappear in a patriarchal system of the arts. In his lecture and in the subsequent EL BARRIO bar evening, Thomas Meinecke will fall back on grandiose recordings from Mary Lou Williams to Jutta Hipp and Alice Coltrane to Dorothy Ashby and Patrice Rushen.

The British singer and rapper Maya Arulpragasam (M.I.A.) finally found her way to music via detours after studying at the Saint Martins College of Art in London. For his documentary Matangi-Maya-M.I.A. ,director Steve Loveridge was able to access her private film archive. From home movies, cell phone videos, music clips, interview passages and off-comments, he created an intimate portrait of the unique musician.

Chromatic Drift by Kabuki explores the relationship between rhythmic cycles and spectral frequencies. With the help of three record players, each running at different speeds, non-cyclic patterns are generated, which serve as the basis for generative compositions. The spectral character of the individual melodies is translated into a certain lighting mood, and offers visitors a multi-sensory – visual and acoustic – experience of a special kind.

As part of the exhibition Ingrid Godon. Ich wünschte , the opencreek hotel invites you to an evening in three acts: After several performative explorations of the rooms and corridors of the Museum Angewandte Kunst, in which one’s own engagements with personal desires are performatively negotiated, a show night takes place in the second part, providing a stage for all forms of entertainment and performances. Contradictions, illusions and seductions are guiding tones that indicate the rhythm of the stay in the opencreek hotel. The four-hour program culminates in a party in which DJs from the opencreek hotel and their friends offer a musical experience until the early hours of the morning.

The opencreek hotel is a group of artists, cultural workers and craftsmen who met for the first time in Isenburger Schloss in Offenbach. With their events, they create spaces in which unrest and insecurities are given space through intimacy. opencreek is fluctuation, a permanent negotiation between open and closed spaces, bodies and vulnerabilities. Visitors are performers just as much as the actual performers themselves in the rooms, because there is no innocence in encounter: Dress as you are!

With Yana Tsegay, Mustafa Boga, Miriro Mwamdiambira, alla popp, Mia Bencun, Sarah Reva Mohr, Anna Pietocha, choir of ordinary people, arootin mirzakhani, Lady Bubu Tea, Nadine Finsterbush, ISIS, Babyboi (Baby of Control), Marshall Vincent Garrett, Iku, Lena Bakonalim, Nikolaus Kockel, Nora Schön, esther poppe, misses rosewood, Jan Berger, Yoga Church of Evil, Darian Spencer, Diane Hillebrand, Sitha Reis, Dolorosa, Katharina Hantke, JENNY, Karaj, Jana Klar, DJ Kazakstar and Candy Popp.
