Nicholas Bussmann: Kosmoskop


2020, Aug 28, Fri — 2020, Sep 20, Sun

All politics and social practices are a continuation of music by other means. That is one way to describe the basis of artist and musician Nicholas Bussmann’s artistic practice. At HKW, Bussmann invites visitors to participate in his multi-layered experiments in societal composition, ritual and polyphony. The spherical music of Kosmoskop consists of revolutionary songs read out via pattern recognition and machine translated back on grand piano. However, the focus is on the Wanderdüne project: a board game between a sandbox and military scenario planning, in which organizational structures are developed and undermined.
