Apparatjik has been invited by the Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin to present the collective's first large- scale project in Germany in March 2011.
Apparatjik is a transdisciplinary working collective founded in 2008 by four world-renowned musicians: Guy Berryman (London), Jonas Bjerre (Copenhagen), Magne Furuholmen (Oslo), and Martin Terefe (London). Apparatjik functions as an experimental platform and collaborates with a pool of artists, media technicians, and designers, as well as scientists such as M.I.T. Astrophysics Professor Max Tegmark and curator Ute Meta Bauer, Head of the M.I.T. Program in Art, Culture and Technology.
The Apparatjik Light Space Modulator is presented as a twofold project: during two weeks the installation can be accessed in the glass hall of the Neue Nationalgalerie and three unique concerts that will be performed at the same location. Those performances are inspired by the visual experiments of László Moholy-Nagy. Moholy-Nagy taught at the German Bauhaus, as did Mies van der Rohe who was the architect of the Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin. At the center of both the Apparatjik installation and concerts are moving images that project from a large scale cube into the open glass structure of the building into the city space - a reference to the kinetic Licht-Raum- Modulator created in 1930 by Bauhaus artist Moholy-Nagy.
Apparatjik is supported by smart through the unique electrically powered Discoball smart. Nationalgalerie, Neue Nationalgalerie, "The Apparatjik Light Space Modulator" exhibition & concert 12.03.-27.03.2011.
