Kombiticket Workshop:

"Urban Documents" - an artistic field recording workshop with sound artist Gilles Aubry

Samstag, 17.12.2011
10:00 - 15:00
Kostenloser Workshop für bis zu 12 Teilnehmer
Anmeldung erfolgt über

Sound Künstler Gilles Aubry bietet den Teilnehmern eine kurze praktische Einführung in das Field-Recording an, sowie einen Einblick in seinem künstlerischen Schaffens.  Nach einer Einführung zur seiner Arbeiten in der aktuelle Ausstellung "Urban Cultures of Global Prayers", realisieren die Teilnehmer eigene Tonaufnahmen von einfachen alltagssituationen in der unmittelbaren Gegend.
Nach der kurzen Ausflug sammeln sich die Teilnehmer wieder in die NGBK um ihren Sounds gemeinsam anzuhören und Ergebnisse/Erfahrungen zu diskutieren. Dabei werden Aspekten der Klangproduktion und -rezeption problematisiert: Wie positionniert sich der Author? Wer wird gehört? Wer wird nicht gehört? Wie kann man Räume klanglich dokumentieren? Wie unterscheiden sich auditive Dokumentationsformen von klassischen visuellen dokumentationsformen?

Sound artist Gilles Aubry offers workshop participants a short, practical introduction to field recording. He will also talk about his own artistic practice. Following a short presentation of his work in the current exhibition 'Urban Cultures of Global Prayers', the participants will go about making their own audio recordings of simple day-to-day situations in the immediate vicinity of the NGBK.
After this excursion, the participants will gather back at the NGBK and do some 'collective listening' as well as discussing experiences and results. Aspects of sound production will be discussed, such as: how does the author of the work position themselves? Who is heard? Who is not heard? How can we record the sound of spaces? What is the difference between auditive documentation and classic visual documentation formats?

Updates - Kombiticket program report for Raumschiff Jugoslawien

During the exhibition Raumschiff Jugoslawien, Kombiticket offered a multi-faceted assortment of 'things to do' that included an animation workshop for teenagers and a hectic but informative kombicar ride through secret ex-Yugoslavia in Berlin.

On the 9th of October 2011, we took a drive with Rüdiger Rossig (with Marko Krojac at the wheel) to search out the 'DIY' ex-yugo scene in Berlin. In fact Berlin is bustling with small and beautiful self-run spaces hosting a very specific array of community events. Along our travels we came across the Rroma Theater Cafe in Neukölln, the Blauer Apfel secret cinema and kitchen in Prenzlauer Berg, the Südost Europa Kultur e.V. exhibition space in Kreuzberg, the "hinterhof Moschee" (backyard mosque) Islamski Kulturni Centar close to the NGBK and painter Lovro Artukovic's studio near Hermannplatz. Meeting random passengers in the car, Rüdiger displayed his talent for full-content/fast-talking and presented his publication, as well as his personal interest in and history of the ex-yugoslavian countries and how some of the protagonists had ended up in Berlin. (following photos taken by Marko Krojac)

Following the Kombicar event was a day-long animation workshop for teenage art students from the Kurt Tucholsky Oberschule in Pankow who looked at the topic memories and how personal memories change and are adapted when 'given further' to other people. The kids visited the exhibition and gained an insight into how other artists had worked with the topic of memory and memorials. We looked at simple animations done by artists that were available on youtube (including short pieces by Norman McClaren, William Kentridge, Rene Laloux and David Shrigley). Then a kind of 'swap shop' of personal anecdotes took place that were then produced as simple, short drawn animations by teams of 4. The workshop introduced the kids to the procedure involved in making a simple animation as well as the difficulty and sensitivity required when dealing with other peoples memories.
