THE PANASONIC WALKMEN ARE SLOWLY DYING OUT!
Opening: Thursday 31 August at 7 p.m.
In the coming weeks, there will be plenty to hear at the Schlumper Gallery…
Pitches, sounds, noises, and music form the basis of all the works being presented
in the new exhibition.
Every era has its own soundtrack and pictures that go with it. Hip-hop and graffiti belong together, as do Schumann Lieder and German Romantic paintings.
And every era has its own sound reproduction devices, the slow disappearance of which is mourned by some and documented by Benjamin Binder as if they were living creatures doomed to extinction.
Music plays an important role in the lives of many people. You only have to think of the first songs you heard as a child, your favorite band, or your current favorite song. When you hear them, particular memories immediately reappear and specific images come to mind. Music can instantly evoke strong emotions. Music and the visual arts have been intertwined for as long as they have existed.
As always, Die Schlumper have interpreted this common theme in a wide variety of ways, each of the artists in their own individual style. In addition, they have invited two well-known guest artists: Gregory Büttner (who has created a wonderful sound installation) and Nils Knott (who will display a selection of his own instruments).
So much to look forward to!
Art has always been an intellectual stimulation as well as an opportunity to develop the senses. In the Galerie der Schlumper – beginning on 31 August – this will take place with the theme, “I can hear what you don’t see!” Or “I can see what you don’t hear!”
