Something wicked this way comes… a new monthly series in the heart of Neukölln:
While the brightly lit gallery spaces of SAVVY Contemporary above focuses on the visual, cerebral and Apollonian aspects of cultural enquiry, BLACKBOX below is a Dionysian shadow world of hallucinatory sound and rhythm, of ritual and technology, of bodies in fluid motion.
A direct extension of SAVVY’s global outlook of contemporary art and culture, BLACKBOX celebrates music of the subaltern, of groups who are socially, politically, and geographically outside of hegemonic power structure; focusing on modern electronic bass and club music and traditional rhythms of Africa, South America, and Asia; fragmenting and dispersing an outdated Eurocentric “cultural center” of the world to encompass the entire globe.
BLACKBOX 1: NGOMA TIMEWARP
Saturday, November 9, 2013 / 11:00pm / ENTREE: 5 EU
SAVVY:ETC – Richardstraße 20, 12043 Neukölln, Berlin
PARTY TIME: 11PM // ENTRY: 5 EU

Under the pavement, the beach, and after Apocalypse, a possible rebirth: these cut-up, mashed-up, re-edited and dubbed out rhythms from different corners of the earth as well as time periods, may form an image, a model, an interconnected rhyzomatic map of our collective hybridized, poly-cultural, high-tech and egalitarian future, where difference is not merely tolerated, but respected and valued, where without loss of individual character, seemingly separate histories, narratives, and cultures cross pollinate and fuse in surprising yet harmonious ways.
4 events coming up to ask ancient African gods for sunshine and warmth.
