ANGO The Meek Dead Exhibition:
"I used to sabotage my own one night stands"
From very long time we were waiting to host the exhibition of ANGO THE MEEK DEAD, an italian artist who's living in town since one year, a very close friend, a special one. As a multimedia artist Ango has been active since the nineties in Europe working as video artist, painter, stage-designer for theater, musician and dj, co-founding the queer group of PORNFLAKES in Milan, taking place to solo and group exhibitions in Germany, Italy, Spain and UK. His works have been published and screened for international queer and film festivals and has experimented his visionary talent in different fields. In this Sabotage we will present a selection of latest works on paper and vinyl, made with mixed techniques on 3x2 or 2x1 surfaces, mostly exposed in the dancefloor area and close to the bar.
"Love to love" performance
Dermal plastician artist/Performer is a basque guy with some issues for iron, blood, steel and holes on (his) skin. From bondage to body modification he has been working on the multiple meanings of changeling, just trespassing the limits of pain and coming back into normality in such a easy way right now. Member of body artists group called UN AUTRE CORP, he's working on new rituals, adding and taking off materials from the white neutral flag that we call BODY, escaping the flat limitations of the meat, his weight, his substance, giving her colour, form, new names, creating new human landscapes made of tattoo patterns, steel accessories, masks of blood, sex games, possession, control. "Love to love/Sorry but I love you" show, gave a new soul and a new direction to this Sabotage. We hope that you'll love it.
WARNING! high content of blood!
This italian dj couple is burning the dancefloors of Berlin Kreuzberg since one year with the monthly night called COCKTAIL D'AMORE, a nice alternative to the populated but boring landscape of gay nights. Giovanni and Giacomo, supported by Boris , created a very crowded party for bears, queers and friends.now located in Aqua (Ritter Butzke). In this project you'll find all the powerful experience of MAGIC CAKE, the funk of their label INTERNASJONAL, the fun of two friends just playing with tracks for their own pleasure. Since eons we were waiting for them, and we are finally proud to introduce them to our public in the warm up time. So, come early!
No needs introductions. Old friend of Sabotage he performed with us like dj and as part of the CLASH OF THE TITANS collective. His wide musical range gives him the possibility to sort unexpected sets from italo to breakcore, just passing by the techno we love. Berliner by adoption, comes from the promise land of Israel/Palestine and landed on the most important stages of our town like BERGHAIN and MIKZ, Barbie, Intersoup, Tresor. We offer again his dj show, a perfect support to the Discodromo music.
Laurent, real name of FW Project is a french guy who's djing since years around in Europe with his own music and his selections of techno. Behind the name of the FW Projekt, there is hidden a DJ previously known as DJ Blonde and DJ Unknown... (nicknames he used for the 15 albums he released in 2 years ). Since 1997 he has been involved in many major parties held by the French and European Fetish scenes: : Alien Nation, Demonia, Nuits Elastiques and also in the Gay fetish scene. His addiction to new technolgies, such as the Traktor software he has been using since 2004, (he has played with the most up-to-date CD decks since 97) makes him a very early adopter of brand-new digital mixing techniques.
In 2006 he became one of the selected few Beta-testers for this software and started the concept for the FW Projekt. FW stands for Friedrich Wilhelm, the first name of Murnau, who was the father of the German Expressionist cinema in the early 20's. This project was started based on his desire to push the new technologies to their furthest bounderies and in order to allow him to integrate the maximum of creativity and musical expressionism into his DJ sets.
THE 2nd Floor-ACID/HARDTEKNO
From time to time we have to give the right kick at the right BPM. There's nothing better of some HARDCORE tunes on the second floor to shake the athmosphere and let the people dance like they deserve to do. For this reason we invited two guys of the TEKKAMOC SOUNDSYSTEM, NULLE and dj DESEASE supported by the light games of INTERFLUG GALAKTIKA. We'll open from 1 o¥clock in the upper floor, where you will dance with another close friend, CHANTAL, djane based in Amsterdam the Nederlands, who will warm up the floor with a selection of acid tekno. After a live set of hardcore and techno provided by DEXTER LABORATORY, the Tekkamoc duo will close the night going even faster and harder.
The video assault: this time videos are provided by two new entries for Sabotage.
BORN HOLMER, young italian video artist. From Catania, Sicily, then to Milan, he's been studying as multimedia designer and art-director. Graduated in 2007 in the Bocconi University of Milan, started his personal research in videoart, documentary and non-fiction moving his impressive first steps and creating from the very beginning a personal poetry by images, a visionary dream made with just few special effects and a very basic plot, allowing an absolute freedom to viewer's imagination.
GOLD/N/SOUR or Pindar will provide the second part of videos during the night. Greek but based in Berlin, has collaborated with the Discodromo and many others in town. Pindaric flights and a minimalistic fair of pictures. Most people say, videos are cool,more than music at Sabotage sometimes and they are right, also for some dj's that are kind of expressionistics talented remixer, they create high-thrill pictures with music.
