Festival at HAU Berlin: From Inside to Way Out


The brilliant cultural institution HAU – Hebbel am Ufer is hosting a three-day festival this weekend: From Inside to Way Out / Perspectives from Contemporary Pakistan is a three-day program with talks, films, music, photo exhibition, and more and presents a variety of artists who work in Karachi and Berlin and uncover surprising similarities between the two cities. The program is dealing with the degree to which cultural attributions are marked by clichés, here using the example of Pakistan.

Nahawa Doumbia at HAU & Robert Henke’s “Lumière II” at Volksbühne Berlin


We just got a heads up from our friend Zuri on the Nahawa Doumbia concert at HAU Berlin on Sunday night. It’s her first appearance in Berlin thanks to Mr Brian Shimkovitz aka Awesome Tapes From Africa. Brian once started his own label under the same name with a re-release of an album from the ‘80s by Nahawa Doumbia. Sounds more than interesting. It will be followed by an after-show-party with DJ Jimmy Trash at WAU – the café/bar on Hallesches Ufer.

Concert starts at 8pm sharp. Tickets here.

A few days later, Thursday Nov. 26th, Robert Henke (aka Monolake) will perform Lumière II at Volksbühne Berlin. It’s an audiovisual composition for lasers and sound and is a long term artistic research project.
