In Wonderland Royal St 3405 New Orleans LA December 1-4 2022

In 2009 sound artist and drummer Simon Berz came to New Orleans for the first time. Since then he has worked with numerous musicians in the city in various combinations and with the formations LIQUID LAND TRIO (Moose Jackson / Rob Cambre), SEDIMENT & SMOG (with Klaas Hübner) and THE SHAKING SOULS (Helen Gillet).
During the pandemic Simon Berz worked in the Swiss Alps and in Berlin on various visual works and sound installations. For the first time he presents his paintings in New Orleans and celebrates the existing collaborations with concerts and performances.
At the vernissage the curator and gallery owner Leslie-Claire Spillman talks with the artist about the shown paintings and projects.

CUT OUT is performance and reflection in the here and now on the valences of the individual processes. Historically evolved "values" and aesthetic cultural practices are to be juxtaposed by means of performance. "Dispositives" of musical processes are put into a state of experimentation by bringing about simultaneity. In analogy to physical experiments, where unstable or critical moments are to be reached in order to achieve new results, with CUT OUT a performance in the "art laboratory" is created in order to realize and put up for debate new references in music and between the most diverse art disciplines.

WUNDERBAR
Landsgemeindeplatz Zug Schweiz ab 22 Uhr
Zu Gunsten für Ärzte ohne Grenzen

Diese Veranstaltung wird von der Stadt Zug nicht mehr weiter unterstützt. Nach Absprache mit dem Finanzamt werden von der Stadt Zug keine Benefizveranstaltungen unterstützt, heisst es in der Begründung. Die Wunderbar war seit über 20 Jahren ein Teil der Zuger Weihnachten zusammen mit der Pfadi und dem Rathauskeller und wurde mit Infrastruktur durch die Stadt Zug mit unterstützt.
Inwiefern eine Weiterführung des beliebten Anlasses an Heilig Abend am Zugersee möglich ist, steht in den Sternen. Ich danke allen Gästen für die Treue und wunderbaren friedlichen Nächte in der Gemeinschaft. Ich habe alle meine Weihnachtsabend seit Jahrzehnten hinter einem Getränkestand verbracht und viele Sorgen der Menschen mit angehört.
