Home as a stable retreat? It seems to belong to a long-gone past. And although the artists in "Frenetic Homeland" interdisciplinary program come from such different cities as Jakarta, Osaka and Beijing, they have much in common: Their societies are changing – very rapidly. "Frenetic Homeland" brings together exhibitions, literature and music. China’s diversified process of change is the focus of literary and discursive events.
Tadashi Kawamata and Qiu Zhijie present their installations. Contemporary writers such as Yang Lian and Yu Hua , who are featured guests of the Frankfurt Book Fair, are invited to Berlin. The music program combines Aronas 's punk-jazz, Goodnight Electric 's synthpop, and the garage rock of THE 50 KAITENZ .
"Frenetic Homeland" combines internal and external perspectives, spaces of visuality, sounds and words.
