Winner Takes All
Alpha Nova & Galerie Futura are delighted to present a solo exhibition by American artist Christa Joo Hyun D’Angelo. Entitled "Winner Takes All", the works in the exhibition explore the rarely depicted world of thoroughbred horse racing from myriad angles. These themes are playfully introduced in "Sex, Money, Freaks", a video collage that combines footage from the auction block, commercial promotions for horse breeding, mainstream television documentaries, and irreverent quotations from The Simpsons to deconstruct the consumer side of the grooming and horseracing enterprise catering to the mega-rich. Location: Am Flutgraben 3, Berlin-Treptow.
Party / Liebes Wedding
Zwischen den Polen and renk. magazine organize a German-Polish/German-Turkish event series.

Lights & Vessels
Lights & Vessels is a debut sneak peek at the first chapter of the progressive wave’s upcoming performance-trilogy "Science of Signs". Decoding a hidden coded-language into an acceptable target-language, this lecture-like solo piece written and performed by Israeli Sign-Language interpreter and choreographer, Gal Naor, aims to claim the relevance of Kabbalah wisdom to the secular world and uncover a comprehensive and thought-provoking approach towards its teachings. Location: Radialsystem V, Holzmarktstraße 33, Berlin-Friedrichshain.
SCORES is an exhibition and concert project in the series "Works of Music by Visual Artists." It is devoted to the subject of the musical score, which since the 1960s has been understood as a versatile recording medium going well beyond traditional notation. The contributions of Saâdane Afif, Christian Marclay, Ari Benjamin Meyers and Jorinde Voigt use various media – text and object, video and comic, drawing and concept – to place this subject at the focus of an exhibition accompanied by concerts. Almost all of the works and scores are commissioned pieces, created in close collaboration with musicians and ensembles. The scores will be presented in the generous spaces of the Rieckhallen, where they will also be successively performed. Audio recordings of these concerts will be played continuously in the exhibition for visitors to hear. Location: Berlin Hamburger Bahnhof, Invalidenstraße 50-51, Berlin-Mitte.
