Marija Bozinovska Jones, J.G. Biberkopf
22 Jan - 3 Feb 2016
Marija Bozinovska Jones (Macedonia)
Marija Bozinovska Jones’s practice revolves around the technocapitalist condition, systems-networks relationships and challenged ontological axioms of cognition, affection and memory.
Bozinovska Jones overcomes geopolitical complexities and representations by flattening out global symbols with the intention of challenging utopian visions of modernity past, present and future. She is proposing fictional places to reflect on the dreamlike landscapes of collective imaginary.
Under the alias MBJ Wetware, Jones will perform with a special guest as a musical collaborator.
J.G. Biberkopf (Lithuania)
Jacques Gaspard Biberkopf aka J.G. Biberkopf, works within the paradoxical relationship between club music and art music. Assembling a collage spanning a vast range of influenses from dark ecology, sound studies, architecture, media theory, existentialist movements, post-dramatic theatre, the work of Ryan Trecartin, grime, musique concrète and more, Biberkopf doesn’t miss a chance to provoke.
GAD is a concept and project series initiated by Marija Bozinovska Jones who under the pseudonym MBJ Wetware examines media ecologies and architectures as open biological systems by way of collaborative practice. For Radio Labs, she invites J G Biberkopf as a musical collaborator, whose aesthetical sensibilities bring the project to a new level via the theme of New Geographies. Together they premier GAD Technologies at the 2016 edition of Club Transmediale in form of a diffused live performance and installation. They will consequitively produce two radio shows, the first one to be aired in March 2016 on Deutschlandradio Kultur.
Theme: GAD Technologies engages with the concept of liquidity in an era of complex geopolitics and technocapitalism. Creating a simulation of heterotopian landscape, it approaches complex subjects ranging from dromological state of existence, diffused identities and nation branding within networked megastructures, attempting to extrapolate a decelerated state of being.
