»HYPER! Sounds«

Rosemarie Trockel, who designed the German Pavilion in Venice in 1999, and the installation artist Thea Djordjadze curate a concert in which the authorship, copyright and concept are always subject to renegotiation. Taking the stage are the Scandinavian DJ duo Den Sorte Skole, icon of the Hamburger Schule Kristof Schreuf, and the electro band Kreidler, with which Rosemarie Trockel has worked for many years.

In what way does music influence the visual arts? That is the question explored in the exhibition »Hyper! A Journey into Art and Music«, which is held in the Deichtorhallen from March until August 2019 and to which the curator and former Spex editor Max Dax has invited around 40 artists. The title of the exhibition is a direct reference to the relationship between the artist Albert Oehlen and the Hamburg electro band Scooter and their hit »Hyper Hyper«.

But the question should also be turned on its head. How does art influence music? The answer to that can only be found in a concert – so three artists and one curator have been given the keys to the Elbphilharmonie for one evening each to present their favourite artists here. The connection is based partly on a conceptual, and partly on a personal level, for example in the joint use of rooms. They thereby build a bridge between two complementary spheres and two cultural institutions at different ends of the HafenCity.
