Ideas for Holger Johns visit in Georgia in 2010

From john50

Holger John is a famous draughtsman in Germany, working in Dresden and Berlin. In 2010 Holger will celebrate his 50s birthday and he wants to combine this aniversary with a visit to Georgia. He wants to draw all the time and maybe have a show:

He thinks:

"HOLGER JOHN - TRANSPARENT.


da ich 1960 geboren 2010 volles jahr habe,
eigentlich muß eine DIE oder RETROSPEKTIVE
oder viele.......
JOHN ART SHOWS her.


gern ein KUNSTBOOM JOHN IN TIBLISSI.

darf nix kosten, da ich immer noch als Malerfürst ohne Fürstentium agiere,
aber papier bekritzel ich, auch vor ORT im CAUCASUS.
Vorschlag: live aktion.

TOP GALERIE
besser in Galerie Ausstellung mit a4 Zeichnungen
auf der Strasse. Platz
MALAKTIJOHN
über Beamer auf Hauswand, Palast Kunstministerium
oder auf Strasse, Stoff.

BERÜHMT UND REICH.

kann man da nicht geld beantragen, goetheinstitut, bei euch...
wenigstens fahrtkosten und so.
ich komme gern mit crew aus dresden. dazu die größte tanzparty auf dem marktplatz.


Lets collect some ideas for his stay: Please comment !

- Spend of course some thrilling days in Tbilisi

- Make a pilgrimage to Art Villa Garikula by feet and with paper and pencil (~ 2 days walk) stay there for a week with Karaman & Co.

- Have a week at the Black Sea Resorts (Beach, Sun, Girlz)

- Enjoy the colorful richness of the Wine Region Kakheti. Visit local Georgians, Azerbaijanians, Armenians, Ossetians, Lezghians. Feel like a Count without Sorrows.

- Make some transparent drawings for Georgia.

Some more and better ideas, please !

MELT! KLUB - HELLERAU GERMANY


MELT! KLUB @ TONLAGEN FESTIVAL HELLERAU MIT MODESELEKTOR, APPARAT, JAMES YUILL, THREE TRAPPED TIGERS


10.10.09 Dresden, Hellerau - Europäisches Zentrum der Künste

Weitere Infos zum Tonlagen Festival unter www.hellerau.org
(Einen Tag vor dem Melt! Klub wird hier die Elektro-Oper von The Knife "Tomorrow, In A Year" aufgeführt!)

Mit dem Format Melt! Klub präsentieren die Macher des Melt! Festivals die aktuellen Entwicklungen der Musik- und Clubszene erstmals in Hellerau. Kleiner, feiner aber in der bewährten Mischung aus Indieklängen und tanzbaren Beats. Mit dabei sind unter anderem Apparat und Modeselektor aus Berlin. Die Formel „Modeselektor + Apparat = Moderat“ ist seit diesem Sommer in der heimischen Poplandschaft ebenso bekannt wie die binomische Formel in der Mathematik. Melt! Klub zerlegt besagte Formel in ihre Einzelteile: Modeselektor mit ihren bunten Visuals und ihrem Soundgebräu aus Techno, Dubstep, HipHop und Dancehall und Mr. Apparat, der einen in sphärische Klanglandschaften zieht, in denen man sich nur zu gerne verlaufen will. Da irgendwo wohnt dann auch James Yuill, der auf der Bühne mit Ganzkörpereinsatz an gefühlten zwölf Instrumenten melancholischen Songwriter-Folk mit mal sanften und mal bollerigen Elektroklängen verbindet – und dabei ganz wunderbar warm zu singen weiss. Als Opener Act spielen Three Trapped Tigers, ein Trio aus London, das mit Math-Rock demonstriert, wie man zu Jazz tanzen kann. In der britischen Musikpresse werden sie bereits jetzt mit Battles und Holy Fuck verglichen - und das zurecht!

Programm:

21.00 - 22.00 Uhr DJ Benet

22.00 - 22.40 Uhr Three Trapped Tigers

22.40 - 23:00 Uhr DJ Benet

23.00 - 23.40 Uhr James Yuill

very nice to have a new Artist in the Club, an artist who is using quilts, a very interesting technique with a lot of boundaries to pull, I think. Ira Lavrinenko is a painter from Tbilisi, Georgia. You can contact her via irqlqvrinenko@yahoo.com and see her works at http://quiltsart.pvt.ge
