labor sonor is a series of concerts, performances and video organized once a month, curated by Fernanda Farah, Christian Kesten, Andrea Neumann and Arthur Rother in a small venue called KuLe in the center of Berlin.

labor sonor has become a meeting point for the vibrant and innovative new music community in Berlin. It is one of the platforms for the echtzeitmusik-scene. echtzeitmusik means the field of ´experimental´ music bordering new music, performance art, electro-acoustic improvisation, or even pop. The members of the echtzeitmusik-scene perform their own music, rather than interpreting the music of other composers or composing for others. These composer-performers work solo or in collective processes, mostly in long term collaborations, but also in ad hoc formations. Characteristic for echtzeitmusik is the sound research of each composer-performer with very individual developments in material and instruments. This focus results often in a certain ´reduction´ either in sound, volume or structure, or in an interest in specific concepts.

There are three sets on one night, each playing or performing for about 20 minutes.
The shows are always on Mondays.

If you want to perform at labor sonor or get some further information, please send an e-mail to:
Please note that we have very limited programming and therefore cannot consider all proposals.

Madame Claude
Madame CLAUDE is an underground bar set up in a former brothel based in the Kreuzberg-Schlesisches Tor district, well-known for its intense alternative nightlife. Created by three French people, friends from high school but settled in Paris, Madrid and London and decided to meet in Berlin, Madame CLAUDE is composed of a series of small rooms, intimate nooks and corridors resembling a labyrinth. To access the bar, the public must go through a wardrobe located in a disturbing living-room refering to David Lynch’s Twin Peaks red room. The “drinking & dining room” is totally upside down and literally defies the laws of gravity: the furniture is on the ceiling while mouldings and lights can be found on the floor. With live acts and/or DJs every night, music is the heart of the place.

Bar open from 19.00 till late... Events every night at 21.00

Monday: eXperimontag (live music experimentation, from avant-garde to noise)
Tuesday: Campfire Session (intimate live from antifolk to pop)
Wednesday: Music Quiz + Ping Pong
Thursday: Happy Price + Ping Pong

Club der Polnischen Versager

The art- and project space WestGermany is committed to confront and integrate artspecific contexts with urban, social and aesthetic structures of the local environment. The space is a contradictory display meaning to touch different concepts of reality emerged by a cultural crossover of energy and progress, illusion and disillusion in the middle of one of Berlin´s most critical and paradigmatic spots of social life (Kreuzberg / Kottbusser Tor).

WestGermany´s headquarter is located in a smashed and ripped down doctor´s office. The conceptual choice and design of the location is related to the deconstructive avantgarde of the 70th and 80th in arts and theory (Matta-Clark/Metzel/Foucault/DeleuzeGuattari/Derrida..). From this point it is questioning and researching the relevant symptoms of society´s cracks and crumbles, collapses and changes and is to be conceived as a utopian-heterotopical site as well as an institution for contemporary arts and music. The label „WestGermany“ therefore provokingly symbolizes a fading FederalRepublicOfGermany-romanticism and memory/track between wistful retro-reverie, kitsch and current self-identification.

La Plaque Tournante
La Plaque Tournante is a non commercial artist space of 130m2 (ex praxis medical cabinet), located in Berlin (Neukölln) and ran by french composer Frédéric Acquaviva and english mezzo-soprano Loré Lixenberg. Every three months, there is an exhibition (avant-garde records, tapes, books, ephemera, manuscripts, drawings, paintings, sculptures, films, photographs, multiples, objects…) and (un)related international experimental events (concerts, performances…). The openings (“Tabulé Rasa” soirées) are free entry (“Create or Donate”).

Other concerts or soirées (contemporary music with Loré Lixenberg, etc…) will be periodically programmed, with or without any particular relation with the ongoing exhibitions focused on “art and writings” (lettrism…), “extended body” (body art, bio art, actionnismus…) and “books and sound” (sound poetry, experimental music…).

The focus will be put on contemporary experimental radical pieces, from sound art and sound installations to sound poetry performances, contemporary and acousmatic, electronic music. The opening soirée (august 6th, 2014) was dedicated to Edgar Varese and has hosted a Phill Niblock performance.

PANDA Theater
PANDA e. V. has been a non-profit association for over ten years in the small courtyard of the Kulturbrauerei – a central location for Berlin culture. Founded in 2000 as a Russian chamber theatre, the PANDA developed into an interdisciplinary art and culture platform with exhibitions, readings, concerts, political discussions, movie-nights and performances.

But PANDA also focuses on current political and social issues – in particular those in the former Soviet Union, such as the situation around the LGBT and gay scene in Russia, the Crimean annexation, the war in Ukraine, and so on. Meanwhile, PANDA has become not only the most important destination for cultural creators in the Russian-speaking community, but also a fixture of alternative art in Berlin.

Despite the great popularity amongst its audience, the PANDA was about to be wound up in summer 2018, as long-standing private sponsorship ended – for family reasons – and without it, it was not possible to cover the costs in the long term. Nevertheless, the team decided not to give up and, for the time being, to work without pay and without external help or staff. The PANDA was given a new lease on life using its own resources; a new concept was developed and we celebrated the reopening in autumn 2018. Today, PANDA is probably the only non-commercial institution in the Kulturbrauerei that does not receive state funding and exists only through the voluntary efforts of the PANDA team. With four to six events per week, this is a remarkable achievement.

It hosted interdisciplinary projects and present international artists from various genres, styles, fields and backgrounds, including music, film, visual arts, readings and lectures and performing arts.

NK is an artist run independent non-profit organization that is dedicated to Sound Arts.

This project entails a 5 year limited scope, our interest is not in becoming curators and or organizers but in taking part in the creation and support of a “culture”, with a focus on experimental music, which could be defined as unusual, strange, extreme and unique music that pushes against the boundaries or definitions of what is considered musical. To this end we organize public events that promote non-mainstream cultural production, and provide a platform for discussing paradigms in music and its problematics. As musicians working within this field we felt that there was a lack of spaces with a multi-faceted approach in Berlin. By Multifaceted we mean spaces that take into account not only the production of this kind of music but also the theoretical discourse that surrounds it. This kind of discourse takes place during workshops, artist presentations, and our weekly user meetings of Open Source Softwares such as SuperCollider and Pure Data where not only code but ideas and approaches are discussed. As a hybrid space, NK is a meeting point, that attempts to cover the gap between academic institutional spaces and the independent cultural agents of Berlin. We are open to proposals from event organizers and independent curators that fit our vision and expand it.

The general layout of NK is Onsite studios and a general purpose room for rehearsals, concerts, and workshops in a 500 square meter factory floor, situated at Elsenstr 52 in the Neukolln area of Berlin.
How to get to NK:

Located in the Neukölln district in Berlin, the galery –able promotes the work of artists from a wide range of areas of contemporary culture, and seeks to contribute to the development of cultural activities in the neighbourhood.

Two ideas are at the base of the project : first, to open a space which allows young creators to exhibit their work, and then to invite the public to meet the artists and discover their latest creations at specific events.

Through a program of regularly changing exhibitions and the organisation of multiple cultural events (film screenings, performances, concerts, lectures, etc), the space favours a wide range of research, practices and procedures.
-able seeks an innovative approach to the artist’s work not only by offering him/her a space for presentation, but also by giving the artist the possibility to get involved in the organisation of the exhibition itself. In parallel, the artist is invited to discover the creations of other artists working in different artistic domains which may influence or inspire him/her, and which are likely to find interest in his/her own field of research.

-able thereby seeks to establish itself as an experimental space favoring multidisciplinarity and the creation of relationships between different artistic domains.

Bei Roy
Since march 2011, Ohrengala is a regular experimental serie organised at Bei Roy and curated by CoCo.

The main idea of the series was to bring a wide spectrum of musicians and sound concepts in a monthly event mixture of electroacoustic, conceptual improvisation and noise music...

Bei Roy is not the typical venue only for experimental music. It is a chance to offer interested people this form of music in a hopefully good way.

After an invitation to join the series as collaborators in february 2012, Julian Bonequi and Audition supported the Ohrengala series as promoters and associated curators.

SPEKTRUM is a space of convergence for cultural communities and transdisciplinary groups emerging and operating in and off Berlin. The project aims to bring confrontation, open knowledge and a platforms for idealisation, realisation and presentation of technology-based artworks, science-focused events and futuristic utopias based on the principle “do-it-together-with-others”. Above all, we are an open space promoting participatory processes to co-define and co-design a social and physical playground for curiosity and critical understanding.

The venue is part of a monumental architecture in the heart of Kreuzberg/Neukölln realised by Franz Hoffmann and Bruno Taut, one of the main expressionist architects of the modernist period. The inner space is characterised by a multi-layered approach to heights, with an unusual 5 meter high ceiling for the event room and other sections organised as split-levels. These architectural qualities tell us a story of planes and volumes, offering guests a surprising walk around with secret spots to discover.
