Jesse G, Yantan Ministry, Julian Zehnder, Customs & Borders
Calmô (Part 3)
To conclude the current project at Halle für Kunst on Saturday, 26.03.2022, a series of performances hosted by artist Nina Emge and musician Timon Essoungou will take place in the exhibition space. Four sound-related artistic practices – Julian Zehnder (CH), Jesse G (DE), Customs & Borders (US / DE / BE) and Yantan Ministry (DE) – will perform during the afternoon and evening. The ensemble of three projects initiated by Nina Emge – (It’s never too late to) Stop, Look & Listen, 17 Days und Calmô – conceptualises a collective form of sound production and listening that departs from the technical specifications of a formalised approach to music, while simultaneously constituting a proposal for a decentralised exhibition practice.

19:00-20:00 – Customs & Borders
