One step ahead moving backwards @ LEAP, Oct 31 – Nov 22

31 October 2014

Berlin’s LEAP (or Lab for Emerging Arts and Performance) welcomes a brand-new group show, titled One step ahead moving backwards, opening October 31 and running until November 22.

The exhibition concept came out of a written conversation between Elisa R. Linn, Lennart Wolff and Hicham Khalidi, then curated into a show by Linn and Wolff, who together founded the non-profit curatorial project km temporaer.

The exhibition features 12 different artists and collaborations – including Kerstin Brätsch together with Debo Eilers, Luca PozziAdriana Ramić, and Tiril Hasselknippe – and November 14 also brings a performance by contributing artists Paolo Thorsen-Nagel, while the finissage will feature a musical performance by Mariechen Danz.

See the exhibition FB page for details. **

Pleasure Principles Pt. 2 @ 9 rue du Plâtre, Mar 27 – 29

26 March 2014

Part two of Paul Kneale and Raphael Hefti‘s Pleasure Principles group exhibition in Paris is opening at La Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette‘s 9 rue du Plâtre space, March 27 and running to March 29.

As much focussed on the human relationships around art as it the critical dialogue, Kneale and Hefti will finish up what is a two-part exhibition and group residency conducting “idiosyncratic research while nightly hosting dinners in the foundation’s ad hoc kitchen space”.

They return on the Thursday to host a concert by Anne Imhof and a performance by Bonny Poon, as well as a an off-site sound installation by Library+ co-founder Megan Rooney in Galeries Lafayette’s retail location at Boulevard Haussmann.

There’ll be a programme of talks, performances and music, poetry readings and lectures Friday through Saturday, including new additions to the original Pleasure Principles group with live musical guests Oona ft. Alexandra (Poon, Max Brand, Anna Susanna Woof-Dwight) and Paolo Thorsen-Nagel.

Read an interview with Paul Kneale and see the Pleasure Principles website for details. **
