From 7 pm
Lucas Gutierrez and Robert Lippok (DJ-Set, back-to-back)

The event format MINSKBAR will once again take place three times this year as part 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 music program of MINSKBAR will continue to be curated by the musician and artist Robert Lippok.

For MINSKBAR No. 1, Robert Lippok and Lucas Gutierrez are playing together for the first time. They will play a three-hour back-to-back set.

Further dates: June 20, 2024 and July 11, 2024 (this date has been postponed)

Robert Lippok has been testing art’s outermost edges for over four decades. His background at the costume department of the German State Opera in Berlin, the studies at the School of Art and Design Berlin-Weissensee, and the pioneering band projects Ornament und Verbrechen (1983) and To Rococo Rot (1995 – 2014) informed a transversal practice spanning from music composition, visual art, stage design, performance and costume design.

Experimenting with a wide range of music technologies, found objects and self-built instruments, Lippok’s pieces – whether an album or an interactive installation – have always transcended mere self-expression to address the role of art as a space-carving and architectural practice. Through the years, his works have been exhibited in the Palais de Tokyo, Neue Nationalgalerie, Hamburger Bahnhof, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Haus der Kunst in Munich, Gropius Bau, and the 60th Venice Biennale amongst others.

Lippok’s ever-present interest in collaborative and interdisciplinary projects catalysed joint ventures with international artists including Doug Aitken, pianist Ludovico Einaudi for an extensive tour, choreographer Constanza Macras , opera director Sebastian Baumgarten, and multimedia artist Julian Charrière.

Known for his long-standing contribution to raster-noton’s catalogue through timeless avant-techno releases, notably “open close open” (2001), “redsuperstructure” (2011), “Applied Autonomy” (2018), Lippok’s live appearances have been presented at worldwide festivals andvenues such as ADE, Berghain, CTM, Funkhaus Berlin, MUTEK, Sonar, and Unsound.

Robert Lippok’s dedication to research has engaged him with renowned institutions for creative investigation and education, being part of the curatorial board of the spatial audio system 4DSOUND, a member of the board of trustees of the Spatial Sound Institute Budapest, and a fellow of Olafur Eliasson’s Institut für Raumexperimente in Berlin. From 2017 to 2022, Lippok was a tutor at New York University in Berlin, where he taught the production class “Experiments in the Future of Production and Performance”.

"we play from 90 to 160bpm”

- Quote  Robert & Lucas

Argentinian digital artist and industrial designer based in Berlin. He has been engaged in various disciplines, from lectures, workshops and audiovisual performances to video art projects focused on the new paradigms of Digital Culture. Deeply involved in the remix culture and real time AV projects in which he blends influences of different contexts – from post-work anthropology to the abstract quotes from 3D modelings for industrial design. His narrative is often quoting current social fears and dystopias, but mostly using the language of colorful, chaotic metaphysics.

His most recent exhibitions were at The New Infinity | Berliner Festspiele | Immersion and CTM / transmediale (Germany), Llum BCN Festival d’Arts Lumíniques (Spain), EMA Expo ММОМА (Russia). Talks and performances at Centre Pompidou / IRCAM / Manifeste (France), Sonar+D and MUTEK (Argentina/Mexico), ZKM-Karlsruhe, MIRA and MMMAD Festival (Spain), Poesiefestival (Germany) and NYU Berlin/Tokio.

Within the last years, Lucas gave lectures at UdK – Universität der Künste Berlin and Kunsthochschule Weißensee in the fields of real-time visualization, spatial motion graphics and visuals.
