VJ open lab #2

A live space for visual minds and bodies.

VJ Open Lab offers the Berlin VJ Community a monthly meeting for inspiration, experimentation, and exchanging of ideas and knowledge in the live video field. Initiated by the VJ Women workshop group formed in Spektrum in spring 2017, VJ Open Lab is a collaborative platform without hierarchy that values joint efforts, partnership, and initiative. VJ Open Lab is open to anyone interested in live visual arts and Vjing. Beginners and visitors are also welcome to join.

Monthly program

SPEKTRUM co-organises a wide variety of media-focused events throughout the week, both guesting external collaboration as well as showcasing the work that has been realised in the communities running at our space, to open up the knowledge gained to a wider audience. Types of events include:

Live acts (audiovisual, sound art, dance, performance): During three weeks of every month we organise live acts - dance, audiovisual and sonic performances - where transdisciplinary approaches between hybrid genres and technological platforms such as programming, self-built instruments, body contortions, sensors and analogical artifacts are recombined in order to show original works.

Screenings: Our program includes nights for screenings of works from the fields of experimental video and documentaries, for which we offer an event room with a 5 meter high ceiling and a large screen (4m by 2.30m), especially well-suited for cinematic projections.

Solidarity: We are open to host events aimed at social causes. We are interested in working together with communities in areas such as health, body (dis)abilities, food/nutrition, open data, politics and urbanism.

Feel free to contact us if you are interested in organising events at SPEKTRUM, or check our latest Open call.
