NIGHT SHIFT – FREE EVENT
Ms Banks live
CREAMCAKE & MAKING SPACES C/O NICHE BERLIN
Join us for 10 whole hours of heady beats and tantalising tipples – dancing is imperative. Creamcake and Making Spaces c/o Niche Berlin take over the Akademie der Künste in Hanseatenweg for a night of democratic thrills. Creamcake will provide a stellar line-up of women artistes. The team of Making Spaces c/o Niche Berlin will work the bar, smiling on their own terms. Be prepared for powerful women to run the place.
Making Spaces is an online platform concerning itself with the work of female spatial practitioners (architects, urbanists, sociologists, curators, critics, etc.) and their innovative approaches to our urban landscape. It was initiated by Niche Berlin, together with Valerie Chartrain, Christina Landbrecht, Rosario Talevi, Miriam Stoney and Fiona Shipwright to create networks, improve practitioners’ visibility and interrogate the parameters of success in outmoded institutional frameworks.
Founded by art historians Stefanie Gerke and Nele Heinevetter as well as architect Katharina Beckmann, the interdisciplinary cultural agency NICHE BERLIN offers new perspectives through custom-made art and architecture tours, art exhibitions and architecture research projects. Initiated by DJs and academics Daniela Seitz and Anja Weigl the event series CREAMCAKE showcases upcoming artists with a strong focus on digital culture. Both women run, Niche Berlin and Creamcake share an interest in new perspectives, freeing up space and presenting their discoveries in Berlin.
NIGHT SHIFT takes place within the 36-hour Factory of Thought. The event aims to develop a more concrete understanding of approaches to the complex expectations placed on public space as a sphere/place where the future of democracy and the quality of life is being decided. 36-hour Factory of Thought is held as part of DEMO:POLIS – The Right to Public Space organised by Goethe-Institut and Akademie der Künste.
