I figured my birthday would be the perfect day to host an art salon featuring myself and have a groovy party with all my interesting friends….  This evening we are collaborating with our neighbors to host the event in the Whatever gallery and Lounge, Qrazy Ling’s Restaurant and our underground Groovatorium here at Skizum Studios. There’s a whole lot going on this evening:

Presentation @ 21.00
My presentation is titled ‘Where I’m Coming From’.  I plan on taking you on a time compressed journey that will lead to where I’m at and where I’m going and why this may be of interest to you…

Party @ 22.30
Live – Funk, Rare Grooves, Brazilian Samba-esque vibes from Giovanni Sacchetti and Leonardo Barreto with special guest Nick Reddel

Djs – groovy tunes all night with Michael Gardiner (uk), Incognegro (nyc/berlin) and Johanna Rörby (sweeden/berlin) + special guests

All Night Long…

• Documentary Film Shoot: Maurice Wilkerling is making a documentary film on Skizum Studios Berlin.  He and his film team  will be  on site filming the presentation, the party and making interviews with some of you!

• Potential Renaissance Contest: Use the Concept Catalyzer text animation to come up with ideas and concepts that can lead to inspiring a new renaissance.  Ideas and concepts can be submitted in any format starting Satuday May 16 until June 15th.  The 4 best entries will be invited to  present their ideas at an upcoming “Introducing…” art salon & soiree.

Special prices on drinks and food all night… 2€ beers and cheap tasty snacks

Peace,
