New Podcast in the Volkswagen ART4ALL Online Edition: Talk with Artist Nevin Aladağ

Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart

Until further notice, an online edition of Hamburger Bahnhof’s public programme Volkswagen ART4ALL is available during the temporary closure of all venues of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (in effect since 14 March 2020). A new podcast will be broadcasted on the first Thursday of the month. In the second part of the Volkswagen ART4ALL Online Edition podcast series on the relationship between art and music, Nevin Aladağ discusses some of her videos and sculptures.

Voice Over

A recorded conversation with the artist Nevin Aladağ about the relationship between art and music in her videos and sculptures.

The starting point for the conversation is her video Voice Over (2006) in the collection of the Nationalgalerie, which will soon be featured in the exhibition Magical Soup. Media Art from the Nationalgalerie Collection, the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection and Loans in this video, for the first time Aladağ made nature play instruments such as a harmonica and a drum-kit, a technique the artist expanded upon in her three-channel video installation, Session (2013). Aladağ has been designing unusual sculptures containing elements of musical instruments since 2014. These can be played by musicians, which interrelates the visual and acoustic forms.
