基礎や基盤を意味する インフラ INFRAという名前は、アーティスト、参加者にとっての新しい基盤を意味しています。

Berlin’s 3hd Festival and Tokyo-based EBM(T) Gallery are combining forces to work on インフラ INFRA 2017 in Tokyo, running August 19 to 26.

An ambitious festival of art, music, and thought in the digital age, the program unfolds in museums, galleries, clubs, and online.

The name インフラ INFRA is a play on the abbreviated form of ‘infrastructure,’ and breaks new ground for participants.

Complete Program

Artists

Johanna Odersky

Johanna Odersky is a Frankfurt-based artist who currently studying Fine Arts at Städelschule. In her sculptural work, Odersky is interested in the silhouettes separating the inside from the outside, and the mechanisms emerging from them: inclusion, exclusion and domestication. Thinking of exteriority as a form of resistance to contemporary claustrophobia, she simultaneously tries to build up and to break thoughts and their borders. A circular movement, in which one does not get closer to an exact definition, but instead is led to inexhaustible regress.

Emamouse

Emamouse has been recognized as one of the most unique figures in Tokyo’s underground experimental music scene. Her playful sounds often combine “denpa”, a type of Japanese music that features off-key vocals, nonsensical lyrics and an over-the-top tune, and warped MIDI pop songs that recall classic Japanese video game aesthetics. Always hiding behind her signature felt mask, she emerges herself in games and virtual spaces to escape reality.

Lyra

Lyra is a singer, composer, and performance artist. She studied classical music in upstate New York, and has called Berlin home for the last three years. In her solo work and collaborations, she embodies the search for sensual mysticism and transcendent emergence of the self within the emotional confines of global capitalism and our ever-more-heavily corporatized digital realms. In both her practices, Lyra commits to feeling, empathy, and listening as the central pathways to self-actualization as well as any affirmative, collective action.
