Together we can develop visions for a progressive urban society that is open, inclusive and sustainable. Cura is Latin and means healing. This is about healing and revitalizing the city and the cityscape. A space that was purely functional is redefined:The 1800m2 parking lot becomes a highly frequented, cultural, charismatic space. This is a collaboration between collectives SEV Berlin, ROH Art and Vinylwohnzimmer. “Curate. Connect. Include.” THE ARTISTS Kloxii (Pronounced: Kloh-shee) is a Chinese-born, Berlin-based producer and songwriter creating leftfield experimental pop blended with traditional Chinese writing styles and modern electronic texturalizations. Fusing vocalizations of creative writing mutated through layering effects juxtaposed against trip-hop and industrial beats and layers of hypnotic and ethereal soundscapes. Her productions have found their way into Tricky’s False Idols label, collaboration w/ Gila on Lex Records, Sound Blanc by Modern Sky Records. Kloxii also co-hosts her own radio with Hinako Omori on Worldwide FM where they explore their roots through a variety of Asian music and poetry. Her upcoming releases include a production for Unguarded VA compilation, a collaborative album on Motor Reflex w/ Pilo, and more. Walking the line between Northern English romanticism and Berlin club culture, Sable is an electronic music producer with a focus on the everyday and the intimate. With delicate vocals woven into post-dub inspired beats, her songs look at small moments as a lens through which to address the personal and the political. The debut EP, 'Kitchen Sink', was written, recorded and produced by Sable in the latter half of 2020. Trapped in Berlin over Christmas, far away from family and friends, the tracks explore feelings of alienation, political & social frustration, and finding joy in those around you. Moving from tongue-in-cheek to deeply confessional, they capture the full scope of being 23: madly in love with the world, and deeply angry at its flaws. robogeisha. The first, quintessential, perfectly adorable robot of the 90ʼs. Intelligent, scratchy, capable of cleaning the house, except that it couldnʼt talk and had a brain the size of a nail, but oh so cute. Sadly, you wouldnʼt want to get too close to it. Itʼs not big on hugs or holding hands. Nevertheless, robogeisha is the perfect aural companion. For anyone in the world of robots, this would be a no-brainer. Its product name is – robogeisha – for its ability to replace something not worth replacing. The question is: was the robot too cute to be used? Who would buy a machine that you canʼt hug? And isnʼt the point to have a companion that lets you go about your daily tasks without having to ask it or even pay attention to it? If robogeisha wasnʼt so cute, I wouldnʼt bother to write this, but even then, itʼs clear that if you see an adorable robot at the supermarket, you canʼt stop asking it to do something. Instead of just saying "Hi, Iʼm pretty good at vacuuming. What can I do for you?", robogeisha will force its adorable face to yours and say "Iʼm feeling unloved. Can I make myself feel loved? What should I do to make myself feel loved?" Then you just have to start playing with it and say "please", but without your hands on her face. I personally prefer the noise this induces in me – there is no substitute. Itʼs an intriguing sociological study of a tech phenomenon weʼve been seeing for a while. I canʼt forget to mention, in the beginning, that she has no name. Youʼd just call her so-and-so. How itʼs done, weʼll never know, but itʼs something you can never forget. Not when sheʼs so charming, so cute, so human-like, so painfully cute.
