Phạm Minh Đức + Kerstin Möller (3–3:45 pm) | ACUD Club

Kerstin Möller (K-Moll) and Phạm Minh Đuc (C-Duc) invite the audience to partake in an artistic listening exercise. Their collaborative performance Matineee brings together classical piano school and electronic music, drawing on aspects of a “culture of failure” and contemporary liberal club culture. In doing so, the artists investigate underlying societal conditions framing notions of belonging, entitlement, and culturalisation by merging together marching rhythms, electronic beats, and experimental noise.

Kerstin Möller is a multi-disciplinary artist and urban sociologist. Her works address extreme emotional states experienced by urban inhabitants, as well as the affects of climate change, in particular in the circumpolar Arctic and Sub-Arctic. Phạm Minh Đuc is a performer and visual artist. In his work he investigates intergenerational trauma and an awareness of the relationship between space and belonging.

Nguyễn + Transitory (4:15–5 pm) | ACUD Club

Nguyễn + Transitory, composed of Nguyễn Baly and Tara Transitory, work mainly with modular synthesizers, magnetic tape and site-specific interface design. In their performances, Nguyễn + Transitory allow sound to take shape in a located and embodied way. Through this immediate and site-specific process, they work with and beyond hegemonic habits of looking and hearing. Frequencies generated by the synthesizers resonate between the bodies present and the surrounding space, touching on the artists’ memories, stored emotions, and collective catharsis.

In 2020, Nguyễn + Transitory created the work ‘Topography Of Vulnerabilities #3’ for Prater Digital. Prater Galerie is delighted that the duo will return to open ‘gegen\archive: wer bleibt wo’ with a performance in ACUD Club.
