Saturday, August 7
21:00 — 22:00
Kick-off on Saturday with a live concert by Die Hässlichen Vögel. As with most avant-garde acts, Die Hässlichen Vögel („The Ugly Birds“) do not fit into a genre – a fact made even more unique by the group’s refusal to record or release any music. Die Hässlichen Vögel is a place for perspective and poetry, for longing and belonging.
The collective’s last shows took place at Schinkel Pavillon’s Performance Programme Disappearing Berlin, the Institute Of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London and Berghain in Berlin. The Ugly Birds approach the future as they’ve tackled the past: with a seriousness coiled on the edge of provocation.

Expo Ervin Latimer + Talk
Talk Ervin Latimer & Morgane Gielen at 19:30
Ervin Latimer's (FI) installation explores through clothing, image, text and sound the endless possibilities of our gender identities. The clothing at display can be taken apart, mixed and put back together to better reflect the user's identity. Simultaneously, the audiovisual experience reinterpets and challenges the Nordic identity at large.
You can visit the installation during opening hours at De Studio. Ervin will also present the result of a collaboration with Belgian artist Morgane Gielen.
With kind regards to our partner The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux.
