Klosterruine Berlin, 7pm:
ACUD MACHT NEU, 10pm:
3hd 2018 is kicking of this year’s program with an earth-shifting presage event called “Takedown” at Berlin’s stunning Gothic relic, Klosterruine on September 20.
The program follows the hybrid festival theme of 3hd 2018: System.Lure, examining the powerful structures that dominate our world. Located in the city’s central borough of Mitte, the Franciscan monastery is playing host to artists responding to the architecture of the space as part of ‘the dead are losing or how to ruin an exhibition’ program. It’s set up “in a ruin and then ruins that, too.”
London-based producer felicita and New York-based artist and musician YATTA work with the reverse hierarchy of folk culture and collective resistance in their work, a disruption to institutional power and reclaiming of identity in their music and aesthetic. felicita excavates his dual heritage as an Anglo-Polish artist through Slavic music and dance in his recent debut album, released on PC Music this month, called ‘Hej!’, while YATTA operates at the intersections of psychosis, colonization, generational trauma, and spirituality within the African diaspora in her creolizes jazz vocals with Krio cries.
The main event will be followed by an after party at ACUD MACHT NEU, featuring DJ sets by felicita, Brat Star, 9Djinn, and Larry.
