JOURNEY INTO THE KNOWN
within the projects
BENEATH THE REMAINS
with Keith Kahn-Harris (GB)
Monday, 09th November
arttransponder Projektraum Brunnenstr. 151
In this presentation and workshop, Dr Keith Kahn-Harris, author of ‘Extreme Metal: Music and Culture on the Edge’ asks: ‘How do we mourn the death of the unknown?’
In the first half Dr Kahn-Harris will put on a multimedia presentation, arguing that the history of metal scenes since 1989 is a symptom of a wider process of the ‘unknown becoming known’ whose apotheosis were the revolutions in Eastern Europe in 1989.
In the second half of the workshop the participants will be asked to try and capture and mourn their first exposure to a subculture, scene or previously secret world. Using art, writing or other creative mediums the participants will produce a collective ‘scrapbook’ of poignant and nostalgic moments in the death of the unknown.
The event will take place in English. There is a limited number of places available, so please register at firstname.lastname@example.org. The workshop is free of charge.
