Five Elements of Berlin Biophony

May 15, 2023 - May 21, 2023

Exhibition, sound installation, interventions and acoustic research stations, concert and sound performance

The center of the paradox idyll on the middle island at Ernst-Reuter-Platz, (a central Charlottenburger multi-lane roundabout) hosts the glass pavilion BHROX bauhaus reuse. "Five Elements of Berlin Biophony /  Berliner Biophonie der fünf Elemente" takes organic biosphere of the site seriously: the five elements water, earth, air, glass (emblematic of architecture and building) and metal (emblematic of traffic) are investigated with sonic means and measuring instruments, and the BHROX bauhaus reuse transforms itself into a sounding measuring instrument of the sonic landscape in its architectural setting. Lectures by civil society actors, scientists and artists lead into artistic tours of acoustic research stations. A concert on Saturday evening will integrate all the observations and collected sound research objects, and diverse interventions will make the bio-, anthropo- and technophonic depth of Ernst-Reuter-Platz and the surrounding circular flows and buildings resound - and the wall of noise of the fountains will be transformed into nocturnal silences. 

With contributions by Alberto de Campo, Florian Dombois, Matthias Grotkopp, Echo Ho, Friederike Hoberg, Hannes Hoelzl, Ariane Jeßulat (Head of Project A04), Michal Kindernay, Lilli Kuschel, Kirsten Reese, Anne Wellmer u. a.
