Kunstraum is bringing Liquid Swords, described as “an annotation of hip hop in contemporary art”, to its London space on April 9.
The event, conceptualised and organised by curator Mette Woller, will include presentations and participation from designer and coder Matt Daniels (who is working on a project on hip hop vocabulary), the art collective Ingen Frygt with Hannah Heilmann, as well as sound and performance artist Mathias Kryger, artist Renyi Ng, and Agatha Valkyrie Ice with Dorota Gaweda and Egle Kulbokaite.
Comprised of in-person discussion, live streaming from New York, discussions of Whitney Houston and modernistic architecture, and a “Deleuzian rap jamming session”, Liquid Swords takes annotation as a tool for investigating a modern movement and examining the structures and cultural shifts that arise from it.
The event will be broadcast live here; see the event page on Genius.com for details. **
