Heute | Jozef van Wissem vertont “L’Âge d’Or”

Yupp, he’s coming for real! Jozef van Wissem will do a live score for Luis Buñuel’s surrealist classic “L’Âge d’Or” tonight at Luru-Kino. Thanks to Bundeskunsthalle we can even screen “L’Âge d’Or” from 35mm film roll.

Jozef van Wissem vertont „L’Âge d’Or“

Van Wissems Instrument ist gleichzeitig altertümlich wie ungewöhnlich: die 24-saitige Laute. Sein minimalistisches Spiel des barocken Geräts gründet auf repetitiven Kompositionstechniken und zyklischen Melodien, Überlagerungen und Verfremdungen.

Btw, today is the last day that you can buy presale tickets for Jozef van Wissem’s live score performance tomorrow. There will only be a few tickets left at the box office. You know what to do…

Update | Posters!

Dear people, thank whoever (maybe not him) that our glue is persistent.. *hehe*

And thank us that we did not mix broken neon tubes in our glue (good old anti-Nazi strategy to keep posters hanging).. *hehe* ..anyway, the fact is: you won’t get the posters of the walls – what you can do instead: buy some of the still available, lovely screen prints! (Handsigned by Ricaletto.) They will be available at our screenings on Friday and Saturday at Luru-Kino, and Sunday at UT Connewitz.
