From the myth about Berghain to the tangible body performer Mad Kate


Digging the internet, I found this pearl of an Arte TRACKS episode from October 2014 which features my report about the myths about Berghain club in Berlin and the tough body and sound performances of Kathryn Fischer aka Mad Kate. The idea for the Berghain report was not to dismantle any myths around this almost sacred place, so we didn´t film inside the club. All interviews with DJ Tama Sumo, artist Marc Brandenburg and photographer Sven Marquardt have been filmed next door in the exhibition about ten years of club art. (By the way, here is a text I wrote about the catalogue to the exhibition, which is available here.) The report "Mythos Berghain" can be found right at the beginning from minute 0:54 to 07:41, the feature on Mad Kate is in the middle of the show from minute 24:57 until 29:38. Enjoy.

Wake up, blog! - With Jeremy Shaw

Wow, this blog has been sleeping. Me on the other hand not. I worked a lot in the last years, producing reports for Arte TRACKS and putting together the show 3Sat Kulturpalast with the team of ZDF and Kobalt Productions. Now I just rediscovered my first ever TRACKS report. It is from November 2012 and shows the Canadian shaman-artist Jeremy Shaw who likes working with dance and other altered states of consciousness. His next opening is June 4th in K├Ânig Galerie, Berlin. This is the link to the German version, ici le francais.
