Tam Tam Sommerfest

Tam Tam Sommerfest

The collective Tam Tam strikes again with a Sommerfest with free admission (but donations are welcome) and lots of love. In this hot festival, we will be pleased with the performances of three different bands and artists. Jim Avignon aka Neoangin creates accessible melodies and bubblegum harmonies like Middle-Class Hell or Slave to the Algorithm, with a pop touch but with a sharp tongue. Hilberg & D-Tex feat. Giorgio Merano will put some gold to your ears with disco music and weird looks. If a dictionary of images would exist, probably…

Cinema Iran

Cinema Iran

The Iranian cinema has a sensitivity and a particular way of explaining emotions and situations that affect the lives of every human being. A good example is the Abbas Kiarostami‘s film Taste of Cherry, a particular tale of a man who doesn’t want to live anymore. Iran is a country known for its convulse history, and this is something that influences their art in many ways. Munich celebrates the 5th edition of Cinema Iran this year when so many anniversaries are going on. The Iranian Revolution began in 1978, the…

Women have been ignored for so many years in fields like science, engineering, technology and even art, but it doesn’t mean they didn’t exist. If we talk about Latin America during the decades of the 60s, 70s, and 80s we can think the indifference is even bigger, but surprisingly, during these years so many feminism movements emerged there. The eight hours symposium Post-Colonialism: Latin American Women Artists (1960 – 1980) is going to take place at Haus der Kunst, where some artists and curators will discuss feminism at that time…
