"CONTEXT" Disturbing Beauties by Vermibus

Join the OPENING of 'CONTEXT' by VERMIBUS @ POP KUDAMM on Saturday: https://www.facebook.com/events/729619718179728

Surrounded by the exciting contrasts of the Kurfuerstendamm, international Berlin-based artist Vermibus is questioning contemporary ideals of beauty.

Drawing on a unique position, emerging from urban art and public space interventions, Vermibus brings into the first art exhibition at Popkudamm, his civil disobedience interventions and altered fashion imaginary within a solo exhibition titled “CONTEXT”.

The artist bases his practice on targeting the depersonalizing effects of advertising, which he negates by exaggerating them. As part of his practice, he removes official poster ads from the public space and alters them in his studio by applying chemical solvents to the image. He dissolves the face and flesh of the models appearing in the campaigns, smudges and erases brand logos, and then returns the resignified ads into their original context.

Through this resignification, Vermibus humanizes the figures that were previously depersonalized, as a means of launching a sharp social critique of the advertising industry and their practices on the human body.

In the end of 2010, Vermibus visited Berlin and was captivated with its thrilling and active street art scene. In 2012 he had his first solo Exhibition at PLATOON KUNSTHALLE Berlin .
His long friendship with was revived last year whit his participation in Garden of Unity 2021 at Platoon Seoul.

With his current exhibition “CONTEXT” at Popkudamm the artist is bringing focus on this last aspect, and how the perception of his work changes in one space or another. Exploring how the context that holds his work has a direct relationship in how his message is understood, questioning whether it acquires or loses meaning exposed in one place or another.

As part of this reflective process, Vermibus offers a large range of interpretations in its exhibition “CONTEXT”.

With this great diversity of options and contexts, the artist makes the visitor a participant of this same reflection. Is the context inherent, an obstacle or an added value to understand his work?

We invite all KUNSTHALLE lovers to the first big art exhibition @ POP KUDAMM: CONTEXT by VERMIBUS.

All of you remember the cover of the first PLATOON MAGAZINE by VERMIBUS and his interventions in Berlin Mitte. His new show at Kurfürstendamm is a blast!

Let’s celebrate together the OPENING on Saturday 4th of June 7 PM.

UNITY STREAM BERLIN • SHEPHERD

For our next Unity Stream Session we will serve a mega collaboration, connecting Seoul with Berlin through the bundle of love which was the closing of the event space Schallplatte Berlin.

The two collectives, BeYond Collective and Kollektiv Waldblöße Netzwerk came together this summer to create something very special on an unused parking lot lost to the city which was gifted to them by Clubcommission Berlin and Draussenstadt. For their closing event Shepherd was invited and again brought another stellar set to the tables as the carpets on the dancefloor didn’t stop shaking.

Erika Bompiedi filmed and captured beautifully the essence of this space, showing what can be achieved when a community comes together in creation which is deeply rooted in magic, expression, authentic connection, music and Love.

Schallplatte Berlin say - "We are extremely grateful to have had this opportunity to link these projects, especially in the times we currently live in where separation is so present in our lives, connecting over borders to celebrate togetherness and music whilst honouring one of the most basic need for humans – connection." Dip back into that unforgettable Schallplatte feeling and remain curious for what will come next! Here are the streaming times and links where you can find the beauty…"

Enjoy the "Premiere" of this authentic Berlin culture hub!

"ON AIR" at 8pm in your Timezone:

BERLIN: 20:00 CET
SEOUL: 20:00 KST
CDMX: 20:00 MCT

SHEPHERD
As a shepherd urges his sheep collectively onwards to a better place, this Shepherd gently guides his flock along a journey of his own making. His sets are carefully curated voyages of subtle emotion and gentle beats, often culminating in peaks that set his audiences free. An artist with a diverse background in music, he has played at countless events and festivals in his current home Berlin and his hometown in Slovenia - always with a keen feeling for the energy of the moment on any dancefloor. We feel especially happy to welcome back Shepherd in our program, he is part of the original crew behind PLATOON KUNSTHALLE BERLIN and defined the musical discourse during all those years. His music always helped us navigate through difficult storms!

BEYOND COLLECTIVE
Beyond Collective is a Berlin based collective - a family, an entanglement of roots. Their vision is the creation of a home for music, a dance floor for curious beings, a playground for your inner child and a platform for connection. Starting three years ago with cosy parties BeYond is growing and will soon birth their first compilation as they become a label.

WE DID IT AGAIN: PHOXXI - a new big container art space for Hamburg

Over the course of one year we developed and realized a new temporary container museum for Deichtorhallen Hamburg presenting the HAUS DER PHOTOGRAPHIE for the next 4 years.

We remodeled and extended our last project HAMMERBROOKLYN.BOX https://www.facebook.com/platoonalliance/posts/2329192977158796 and created a new cultural landmark.

The people love it already!

UNITY ART SCREENING
"FOAM & SAND" BY ROBOT KOCH

foam_and_sand is the ambient project of award-winning composer robot koch . The project started during the lockdown in 2020 and organically grew under the radar until it was officially announced in 2021. Foam and Sand uses tape recordings of slowed-down pianos, modular synths, and other sonic sources to create these warm and organic ambient tracks.

The signature sound is created with tape loops that magnify all the beautiful irregularities of a cassette tape that the artist shapes into hazy ambient creations which are intended to highlight the interconnectedness of life.

With recent support from Dummy Mag, KEXP, Echoes, ByteFM , KCRW, and NTS, the new project has a growing audience of listeners worldwide who enjoy these hazy ambient creations that incorporate both a sense of nostalgia and futurism in their holistic sound design.
