Music has shaped the world indelibly. The seventh edition of the Ramones Convention once again celebrates the band that invented a genre. Ramones is considered the largest band of the New York punk rock movement and one of the most influential groups in the genre ever.

The exhibition “Underground Hip-Hop” will open on April 20 with the support of IQOS and MSK Eastsige Gallery in ARTBasement on the -1 floor of the Tsvetnoy Department Store.

Q: What is the difference between today's music and the one that was before? Why hip-hop and music in principle have ceased to be a protest?
A: There is hip-hop, protesting against social injustice, perhaps, today's youth is focused on something else, for example, video games, social networks. Who wants to write songs about the North Korean missile program or the war in Ukraine?

Hamburg: TRIENNIAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY 2018

KUNSTVEREIN HAMBURG
TRIENNIAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY: BREAKING POINT
CALLA HENKEL / MAX PITEGOFF: SHIFT

Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff (* 1988 in Minneapolis, * 1987 in Buffalo, live and work in Berlin) show photo portraits of actors, artists, writers, musicians and performers in a context that deliberately allows changes to the compositions. Her photographic practice draws on performance, theater and the production of social spaces, such as in the New Theater or in the Green Salon of the Volksbühne Berlin.
The detachment of place and purpose of the persons depicted produces a kind of cast list of a self-administered sitcom of former lovers, friends and people from long-forgotten jobs and foggy weekends. The artists lead us to the point, that we have no idea who (or what) will ultimately collect our images for us, e.g. processed and grouped in the new media of Facebook & Co. In the tradition of conceptual artist Heinz-Günter Mebusch, the artists draw attention to the double nature of the portrait.
