"Narrowcast"
A performance by David Bernstein and Rosa Sijben
Part of the series Things are Happening

Mönchengladbach has a big, old and beautiful museum that's been empty for some years because the staircase can't be used by too many people at once.

In this amazing building, we are presenting a guided performance for just two people at a time.

We invite the two of you (or come alone, we’ll find you a partner) to walk around the building with us, receive the smallest radio broadcast in the world and hear David and his mom singing together on Skype. We would like to tell you stories, talk to you through virtual windows and show you objects and situations we created.

To make an appointment, contact Städtischen Kulturbüro, 02161-253953, co-mg@moenchengladbach.de

Overture: 12 April, 19:00
Performances: 13-17 April, 14:00-20:00
(Duration 20 minutes)

BIS - Altes Museum
Bismarckstraße 97-99

"There are always at least two ways of looking through a loophole"
A performance by David Bernstein

Take your chance pants, fold up your body with pure reason, and hop on the goat boat.
"It's a trick, it's a slip." Walden whispered through the slot.
On Saturday April 5th, we invite you to come over for an evening tour through the building of Walden Affairs. You'll find a host with the most, stories told, minds read, and pizza theorized.

With: Mike Bailey, Hrafnhildur Helgadóttir, Sophia Holst, Joost Nieuwenburg, Mischa Poppe, Reynir Þór, Jennifer Teets, and Marianne Theunissen

5 April 2014, begins at 8pm

Burnelė - The First Evening

Species of Spatula
Oct. 7, 6.30pm
CAC Cinema
Vokiečių g. 2, LT-01130, Vilnius

Burnelė is a series of three evenings at the Contemporary Art Center (CAC), Vilnius organized by David Bernstein in collaboration with different invited guests.

“Burnelė” (literally – “a small mouth”, but also a “shot”, as of vodka) is one of the words in Lithuanian that mean both a container and the thing that fills it; the mouth and the drink become extensions of each other by way of measure and by direct engagement. Burnelė is also an occasion for a social gathering, in this case – an occasion to see and discuss how things have the potential to extend into other things, thoughts, and stories.

For the first evening, philosopher and writer Aaron Schuster will interview David Bernstein about his obsession with spatulas.

The HAYY RESIDENCY ISTANBUL

My project Funnelumpet Pong will be presented on the 14th Sep. 8pm

Adres / Address Hoca Ali Sok. No. 6/teras

Funnelumpet Pong is a device for transmission between two islands, Europe and USA. Before traveling to USA, I invited a group of friends and artists to give me tasks to perform while traveling around on a road trip for one month. After these tasks were received and expressed in USA, they hit a ping pong paddle and bounced back to Europe where they will be shown at the HAYY RESIDENCY ISTANBUL.

In Collaboration with: Yosuke Amemiya, Jokūbas Čižikas, Géraldine Geffriaud, Yoann Gourmel, Sophia Holst, Jin Jing, Tamara Kuselman, Ray Ray Mitrano, Pedro de Moraes, Nüans, Jurgis Paškevicius, Rosa Sijben, Nathan Thurman, Diego Tonus, Silvia Ulloa, and Robert Wilhite.

Part of Sandberg Institute graduation show, “The Festival of Choices 2013”

Performance Friday 5th July at 7.30pm

I was gaping at it, I was motionless, I was getting a bit hungry, but still couldn't look away. Daphne's face was screaming and what could I do? Marble garble, flesh confess, get the wood good. Oh my gouda kaas, ola margarita, maybe I should make my spatula out of marble instead of wood.

The performance will be the first part of an evening program with the exhibition of Jurgis Paškevičius and The Bible Performance by jugedamos.

CHINESE WHISPERS (at) CURA.BASEMENT

Ilaria Marotta, Costanza Paissan

(with)
Riccardo Benassi, David Bernstein, Marco Bongiorni, Ethan Breckenridge, Cristian Chironi, Taylan Cihan, Jonas Delaborde, Tomaso De Luca, Gabriele De Santis, Gregory Edward, Anna Franceschini, Liam Gillick, Tyron Grillo, MacGregor Harp, Silvia Hell, Irina Kholodnaya, Jean-Baptiste Langlet, Domenico Antonio Mancini, Shimon Minamikawa, Matthieu Palud, Andrés Ramirez, Billy Rennekamp, Lisa Sanditz, Sigrid Sandström, Angelo Sarleti, Trevor Shimizu, Rita Sobral Campos, Christopher Stark, Lisa Tan, Elena Tavecchia, The Ister, Alice Tomaselli, Ricardo Valentim, Elise Vandewalle, Roger van Voorhees, Chiara Vecchiarelli, Olav Westphalen, Jocko Weyland.

(details)
Chinese Whispers is a project on role reversal, loss of control and chaos.
At the end of a process, which lasted about a month and started with an invitation by the five curators to an interlocutor, the show includes, in the current last stage, more than forty artists, curators, musicians, poets and collectives from over ten different countries.
The exhibition will take place at cura.basement space on May 20th. It is the result of a layering of suggestions that step by step had inspired a variety of works, traces and interventions, summarizing a reflection on the mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion, and on the dynamics of building a visual, aesthetic, conceptual imaginary extended to an entire community.
