Tokyo's international Festival
for Music and Visual Culture.

東京を拠点とするサウンドギャラリーEBM(T)と、ベルリンを拠点に活動を行う3hd Festivalは、フェスティバル「インフラ INFRA」 を8月19日から8月26日まで開催いたします。

インフラ INFRAは、デジタルカルチャー時代におけるアート、音楽、思想を、美術館や、ギャラリー、クラブ、そしてオンラインという場を介して開催される、今までにはないフェスティバルです。

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.

Artists

Nozomu Matsumoto

Nozomu Matsumoto is a sound artist based in Tokyo, co-founder of the sound gallery EBM(T) and co-founder of インフラ INFRA. His work has been presented at galleries such as Yamamoto Gendai and Talion Gallery. Matsumoto has done sound design for many projects including Nile Koetting’s “Sustainable Hours” at Maison Hermés in Tokyo and Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishisawa / SANAA’s lnujima “Landscape Project” during Architecture Biennale in Venice 2016.

Jenna Sutela

Jenna Sutela’s installations, text and sound performances seek to identify and react to precarious social and material moments, often in relation to technology. Most recently, she has been exploring exceedingly complex biological and computational systems, ultimately unknowable and in a constant state of becoming. Sutela has exhibited her work at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, The Institute of Contemporary Arts London, and The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, among others.

Aurora Sander

The Berlin based duo consisting of Ellinor Aurora Aasgaard and Bror Sander Berg Størseth constantly serve up fresh perspectives on the world, tongue in cheek, jaws scraping off the ground. The objects produced by the duo are caught in between form and function, art and design, discourse and disgust. Aurora Sander reacts to the intrinsic structures of the art world, of socialization, distribution, value creation, judgement, and accruement, to turn some tables, but making sure the tables look damned good on the way round.
