Marx Reading Group

Next Date: 27.06.2018 (19:30)
TopLab: Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Berlin

We are launching the Marx reading group that will take place on one Wednesday evening every month!

Over the course of the year, we will slowly but surely digest Volume I of Capital. We plan to read the chapter(s) in our own time, and during the evening we will screen the corresponding David Harvey lecture from his online series (http://davidharvey.org/reading-capital/), interspersed with discussions. The format is, of course, open to suggestions and we can figure out what is most conducive to fertile discussions as we go! Read More

Let it glow. Workshop

Fri, 15.06.2018. (19:00 – 21:00)
Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Berlin

Living in a voluntary relationship with the sea animals, Photobacterium has developed a social sense directly connected to its bioluminescence. In this open workshop, everyone will influence the social life of Photobacterium in an attempt to make it glow. Practically, you will learn to culture the bacteria on agar plates and then grow it at home until it glows beautifully.

Everyone is welcome to the workshop, that means also children and young adults. No prior knowledge is needed and all the materials are provided by us. Read More

Strings / audio-visual installation

7-10. June 2018
TopLab: Schillerpromenade 4, 12049

The string is one of the basic tools for creating music. Simple in assumption and complicated in the diversity of use. When referring to visual arts, we can build an analogy between the string and the line, because just as the string is the sound source, the line is the source of the image. Taking this parallel as a guiding principle, Lena Czerniawska and Adam Pultz Melbye’ audio-visual installation Strings bridge the experiential divide between the visible and audible world.
