In short, we have decided to extend the previous exhibition MÄDCHEN MIT SCHALLPLATTE until end of January 2023 by keeping a selection of relevant pieces, adding new ones — and to rename it in WALL OF SOUND.
This new exhibition is the result of an open call for music-related artworks and brings together 100 artworks of more than 70 artists with paintings or drawings of album covers or song texts, sculptures, objects, limited editions of records, tapes, posters…
WALL OF SOUND is about the role that music can play, both symbolically and as references to historical and contemporary contexts of experimental, jazz and rock music. It shows that music can be used as a political instrument or as a representation of a certain period, but can also provide an opportunity to come together. In this way, the exhibition WALL OF SOUND aims to make visible the diverse artistic voices that make up the Berlin art landscape.
We have also requested the artists to choose one or two songs in relation to their work to create an exhibition playlist, that we will play at the opening and other events and will be continuously updated, and could be heard and downloaded here.
