LONG NIGHT OF PERFORMANCE: Kevin Schmidt Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

Will you still love me tomorrow? – With this question Kevin Schmidt adopts the motto "Beyond tomorrow" of the Quadrenniale for his performance for KAI 10. Street musicians of different genres interpret songs selected by the artist, Their lyrics address both the intensity of the moment and the fear of its volatility and its consequences the day after. The feelings sung about – hope, longing, desire and regret – also reflect the character of art events. At the same time, the performance takes up the theme of the exhibition BACKDOOR FANTASIES, which reflects the emotional qualities of the area in the works of art presented in the exterior and interior in Dusseldorf´s media harbour.

In Cooperation with the Embassy of Canada.

August 9, 2014, starting from 4 p.m. Raketenstation Hombroich 4 in Neuss (Abraham-Building)


Concert: Saturday, August 9, 2014, 8 p.m.: Tickets available at: KAI 10 | Arthena Foundation, Langen Foundation, Julia Stoschek Collection, Infozentrum der Quadriennale im NRW-Forum

The program starts with a video screening on the topics Ghost Towns – Utopia – Architecture at 4 p.m.. The works on show, by Marina Abramović & Ulay, Monica Bonvicini, Andreas Bunte, Cyprien Gaillard, Manuel Graf, Gordon Matta-Clark, Ben Rivers, John Smith, Weisser Westen, Michael John Whelan and Tobias Zielony, deal with both failed utopias of the modern era and the relationship between human being and architecture.

The evening´s musical highlight is a live concert by German composer and pianist Volker Bertelsmann aka Hauschka (8 p.m.). He will present his new album Abandoned City. Working with a modified piano, the musical performance revolves around the atmosphere of ´ghost cities`. Images and stories about places that were abandoned by their inhabitants due to natural disasters or architectural planning errors served him as a basis for his music scores.

Matching the theme, the Quadrifinale takes place on the Raketenstation Hombroich, a disused NATO-site, which is being transformed into a lively retreat for artists, writers and scientists. The video screening and the Hauschka concert will take place at the so called Abraham-Building, which conceptually is settled between architecture and sculpture. Yet, the building is still unfinished and not used permanently. During the Quadrfinale the building, designed by Raimund Abraham, is assigned to its true destiny as a concert and event venue – in the hope that according to the motto of this year's Quadrennial Dusseldorf Beyond tomorrow in the future it will become a lively place for culture.
