Globe-M: Takehito Koganezawa performance at “Japan Next” – article

On Thursday 23rd August I attended “Japan Next. Künstler aus Japan – Im Fluss der zeitgenössischen Kunst”, a performance and discussion on contemporary Japanese art at Bethanien in Kreuzberg. Part of the “Echo” exhibition. And I was blown away by the performance of Japanese artist Takehito Koganezawa. Check him out!!! I hadn’t heard of him before (then again I don’t really know a great deal about contemporary performance/art) but apparently he is pretty famous. He lives in Berlin and has had some impressive exhibitions over here.

And he opened the talk/discussion at the Bethanien yesterday with an AMAZING performance; played on an Indian harmonium and combined this sound with colourful patterns generated by the electrical interference between two hand-held cameras that were thrown on the wall by a beamer. The patterns, not the cameras. At least that’s what happened, I think. I’m not too clear on the technology behind the artist’s performance but it was wonderful.
