Saturday 03 September, 14-20 h and Sunday 04 September, 11-18 h
SATURDAY, 03 SEPTEMBER
14:00, in front of the Altbau Foyer: With Dr. Sabine Ziegenrücker (Head of the Department of Art and History, Reinickendorf) and Kaya Behkalam (KHF). Presentation of the recipients of the Dieter-Ruckhaberle-Förderpreis 2022, Anna Scherbyna & Uliana Bychenkova, and of the publication of the 2021 recipient, Surya Gied. The studios will be open afterwards.
14:30: Schneider TM, research on the ruin of the “Baselitz-Piano”. The Künstlerhof Frohnau is in possession of a dismantled concert grand piano – more a ruin than an instrument – that is said to have once belonged to the artist Georg Baselitz, who in turn gave it to the founder of the Künstlerhof Dieter Ruckhaberle. Schneider TM aka Dirk Dresselhaus approaches this historical artefact as a sound researcher and attempts to bring it to life in a performance.
15:00: Guided tour through the studios of Künstlerhof Frohnau, with art historian Katarzyna Sekulla, meeting point at the entrance to the courtyard.
16:00: With Nicola Jungsberger, “Letting trees speak to us”, duration 60 minutes. Start at the pavilion.
17:00, behind the Neubau, preceded by a short welcome address by district mayor Uwe Brockhausen: Andreas Voccia (modular synthesizer) / Sam Dunscombe (clarinet) / Alexander Frangenheim (double bass). The trio emerged from a quartet with the French pianist Fréderic Blondy. Advanced playing techniques and abstract electronics allow them to explore the boundaries between sound and noise and to transform this into a homogeneous overall sound.
18:00: Guided tour through the studios of Künstlerhof Frohnau, with art historian Katarzyna Sekulla, meeting point at the entrance of the courtyard.
18:30, in the Altbau Foyer: Premiere of the video “Ingeborg Bachmann & Paul Celan”, with images by Rosika Jankó-Glage and compositions by Bardo Henning. Further screenings: Sunday 12:00, 14:00 and 16:00.

SUNDAY, 04 SEPTEMBER
11:30: With Nicola Jungsberger, “Letting oak children speak to us”, duration 60 minutes, start at the entrance to the new building.
12:30: Guided tour through the studios of Künstlerhof Frohnau, with art historian Katarzyna Sekulla, meeting point at the entrance to the courtyard.
13:00, Atelier 20: The artist duo Ojoboca (Anja Dornieden & Juan David González Monroy) present the project WINDOW FILM – A window frame with a motorised camera shutter. The blind rotates in front of the frame and creates a flicker effect that is visible in the room, so the view out of the window becomes a film. Light-sensitive sensors are placed in the room and the flickering of the shutter creates a signal that is converted into a sound that changes depending on the speed of the shutter. Further performance at 15:30.
14:30, in the courtyard: “Domenica – Sunday”. Hye-Eun Kim (sound, voice, movement), Otto Oscar Hernández Ruiz (spatial design, percussion, voice, movement) and SHIN Hyo Jin (percussion, voice, movement) create a space-sound performance that associatively recalls ceremonial walk-throughs, rituals of narrative coming together and a shared catharsis. Each space inspires their improvisation-based interpretation of their sources anew.
16:00, Atelier 5: Lotte Henning (vocals) and Bardo Henning (voice, piano, composition), concert with songs based on texts by: Kurt Schwitters, Bert Brecht, Gertrude Stein, Erich Kästner, Joachim Ringelnatz and Mascha Kaleko, as well as selected jazz standards.
17:00: Guided tour of the studios of Künstlerhof Frohnau, with art historian Katarzyna Sekulla, meeting point at the entrance to the courtyard.
