DAS MINSK’s new event format MINSKBAR will take place three times over the course of the summer exhibition. On one Thursday each month, DAS MINSK and the bar will be open longer in the evening. There will then be an opportunity to speak with mediators in the exhibition and to linger over music in Café HEDWIG and on the MINSK’s terraces. The exhibition remains open until 9pm.

The music program of MINSKBAR is curated by the musician and artist Robert Lippok. A DJ set by Chica Paula will ring in the evening from 7 to 9 pm, and starting at 9 pm,  Debashis Sinha will play a live set. 

The ticket for the RUINS event also entitles to attend MINSKBAR NO.2 afterwards.

Paula Schopf (aka Chica Paula, b. Santiago de Chile) is a musician, sound artist and cultural provocateur who has been an empowering and outspoken voice in Berlin’s thriving creative community for the last 20 years.

Paula Schopf established permanent residence in the city in 1991 and, under the name Chica Paula, became a fixture in the city’s nascent club scene. Upon invitation from the German artist Gudrun Gut, she joined the Berlin artist collective Ocean Club, a community of musicians, DJs and visual artists, which later hosted a revered radio broadcast under the same name, and electronic music events which would go down in history as some of the most diverse and eclectic the city has ever produced.

Together with the musician Max Loderbauer, Schopf recorded her first album “42 Mädchen” in 2003 on Gudrun Gut’s Berlin based Monika Enterprise label under the artist name Chica and the Folder. Their second collaboration, “Under the Balcony” followed in 2007. In the years since she as also produced various remixes for a diverse range of artists including Donna Regina, Contriva and Hauschka, primarily for the much lauded Karaoke Kalk label.

Since her first music productions, Paula Schopf has worked with electronic sounds, utilizing soundscapes and field recordings as aesthetic and compositional source material. 
In recent years her practice has centered increasingly around sound research. The detailed examination of sound in urban spaces and its inherent social, historical and political realities has become her main interest.

In 2017 she obtained her MA in Sound Studies at the Berlin University of the Arts in Germany.

A percussionist with a distinctive voice and imagination, Sinha has long been a fixture on Canada’s creative audio scene as a composer, performer and musician, exploring the many different ways traditional and contemporary tools can inform each other. He has made appearances nationally and internationally at ISEA, MUTEK Japan, the Banff Centre, Madrid Abierto, Guelph Jazz Festival, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, and many other venues. His sound works and concerts are heavily influenced by his long career in theatrical sound design as an award winning sound designer and composer.
