Nik Nowak et al @ Boiler Room, Apr 6

6 April 2016

Nik Nowak,  Nicole Moudaber,  ÂmeDigitalism and Breakbot are playing The Boiler Room titled #untaggable in Berlin on Apr 6.

The event invites several artists that blur between tracks as well as across categories to perform, including Nigerian-born London-based Mood Records producer Moudaber, and sound installation artist Nowak, who restlessly investigates the role of audio as cultural transmitter and works with echo-less drones and mobile sound systems. It’s an approach he is set to apply to a car as a musical instrument on the night.

See the event page for further details.**

‘Deletion after Death’ @ Alexander Levy, Sep 11 – Oct 17

10 September 2015

Berlin-based collective DELETHE is presenting their ‘Deletion after Death’ project at Alexander Levy, opening September 11 and running to October 17.

Established in 2012, the group includes artist Nik Nowak, lawyer Philipp Brandt and the late curator and art critic Peter Lang, joined by communication design studio VERBALVISUAL as of 2014.

The project is what it calls a “forum, a self-experiment and a service” exploring the legislation around data deletion, digital property and the estates of the deceased, while begging the question, ‘How is our immaterial information collected, or forgotten, in a material world?’

See Alexander Levy website for details.**

Nik Nowak @ Berlinische Galerie, Apr 11-Jun 30

11 April 2014

From April 11 to June 30, the front hall of Berlin’s Berlinische Galerie will be filled with the new sound installation from artist Nik Nowak called ‘Echo’.

The award-winning artist (who recently took home the GASAG Kunstpreis 2014) uses autonomous robot drones and shifting sound systems to explore the acoustics of sound and how it is perceived when rendered echoless. The paramilitary effect of the installation is intention; Nowak’s work actively explores the collapsing border between private and public, and between civilian and military applications.

Taking inspiration from his love of technology, performance, music, and sound, Nowak creates “Echo-Drones” that interact with the visitors, taking their sounds and reverberating them back in different forms.

To find out more about the exhibition, visit the Berlinische Galerie event page, or get details on the aqnb event listing. **
