The Apparatjik Light Space Modulator

Full press release is on a-ha.com and on Jonas' web site:

The Apparatjik Light Space Modulator
Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin
Exhibition: March 13–27, 2011
Performances at 9 pm, March 12, March 26, and March 27, 2011

The Apparatjik Light Space Modulator is presented as a twofold project: during two weeks the installation can be accessed in the glass hall of the Neue Nationalgalerie and three unique concerts that will be performed at the same location. Those performances are inspired by the visual experiments of László Moholy-Nagy. Moholy-Nagy taught at the German Bauhaus, as did Mies van der Rohe who was the architect of the Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin. At the center of both the Apparatjik installation and concerts are moving images that project from a large scale cube into the open glass structure of the building into the city space — a reference to the kinetic Licht-Raum-Modulator created in 1930 by Bauhaus artist Moholy-Nagy.

Apparatjik's project will conclude on March 27 with a special interactive composition performed in collaboration with the Deutsches Kammerorchester. This concert is dedicated to Mies van der Rohe on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of his birth.

Tickets for the three performances (12, 26 and 27 March) are available at 10:00 GMT on 1 February at apparatjik.com.
