Exhibition - Singing Instruments!

"SINGING INSTRUMENTS!” an interactive exhibition for children and adults alike to explore making music with unusual instruments. The custom-built instruments intentionally resemble everyday objects: four sink with taps form a singing quartet, five bicycle wheels creak rhythmically, and a dresser with seven drawers conjures up complex sounds. These items are used to prompt a form of ‘intuitive music’. The experimental music project is part of the series "Voices of Umea" by Swedish composer Anders Lind. The exhibition will include 10 workshops for children and teenagers along with artists from Berlin and Iceland during the Berlin holiday program.

Design Exhibition - Contemporary Collected

CONTEMPORARY COLLECTED no 3

On display as part of Play Nordic at Felleshus in Berlin July 4, 2014 - October 1, 2014

Mon - Fri 10am - 7pm
Sat - Sun 11am - 4pm

Contemporary Collected is an exhibition concept curated by Katrin Greiling. After two successful exhibitions in Tokyo, whereof the second one was co-curated by Gustaf Kjellin, Felleshus in Berlin hosts the first show in Germany. The selection of 100 objects from all five Nordic countries, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, includes both contemporary design and every day objects. The selection at Felleshus highlights the strength of Nordic design, raging from one offs to mass-produced and limited edition items. Represented are both recognized Nordic design practices as well as young emerging talents, working in different design disciplines. Other typical daily life objects from each country accompany the selection. The exhibition was made possible with great support by the five Nordic embassies of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
