Berlin is all about defying labels, fusing cultural movements together, being many things at once. A bartender in a techno club wearing fashion from her own international vintage boutique store. A street musician organizing instrumental education and charity efforts for economically disadvantaged immigrant children. An avid couchsurfer who is now CEO of his own startup company. A DJ who also creates visual art and plays guitar for a world-renowned synthpunk artist.
One meets this last example in the person of Saskia Hahn. The German-born multimedia artist is vocalist and guitarist of the band Sweet Machine, who play as backing band for international electro artist Peaches. She also spins as an electro DJ, as herself and in the duo brand “Mine&Hers,” with her husband, New Yorker DJ and producer Marc-Alan Gray. When she’s not playing music, she’s in the studio creating her own unique flavor of expressionist pop art.
The visual artworks of Hahn and American pop artist Dean Rosenzweig will be exhibited from Thursday, Nov. 15 through Friday, Nov. 30 in Berlin’s Gallery BOX32, at Boxhagener Straße 33. The opening, on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 7 p.m. onwards, will be accompanied by wearable art from New York designer John Renaud, and live DJ beats from Marc-Alan Gray and DJ Kurtz.
