Berlin Will Host A 4-Day Program Exploring The Detroit-Berlin Techno Axis

The stacked program features performances and panels featuring Juan Atkins, Mike Banks and Mark Ernestus.

An extensive four-day program celebrating the nexus between Berlin and Detroit will begin this week in Berlin. Detroit – Berlin: One Circle takes place between May 30 and June 2 at HAU and features musical performances, conversations, panels and clubnights aimed to dissect the complex culturo-political context surrounding the birth and reception of techno in both cities.

Among the highlights of the event include a live performance by Juan Atkins’ Model 500 project, a Sun Ra reel-to-reel session presented by techno don Mike Huckaby and a panel on techno’s early history featuring Underground Resistance’s Mike Banks, Mark Ernestus and Tresor’s Dimitri Hegemann. There will also be a whole evening dedicated to hip-hop and feminism featuring Miz Korona & The Korona Effect, Ché & Dj Stacyé J and AWA – African Women Arise.
