The Destruction of Utopia – Reviving the Timeline

Kunstquartier Studio 1, Mariannenplatz 2, 10997 Berlin Map
Tickets: 5 €, box office only


14:00 15:30

Andrey Smirnov and Liubov Pchelkina attempt to structure the diverse and contradictory material based on the lost and forgotten names and facts related to the history of ideas, inventions, and artistic projects of the Russian revolutionary artistic Utopia of the 1910-1930s developed in the realm of Sound Art, musical technology and beyond.

The talk clarifies and provides complementary information relating to many of the subjects included in the Generation Z : ReNoise exhibition presented at CTM 2014 as well as in Sminov's Sound in Z: Experiments in Sound and Electronic Music book.
