WOW shortlisted for Berlin Art Prize

We’re happy to announce that our WOW project – the most minimal record ever made, created by Carl Schilde – has been shortlisted for Berlin Art Prize 2013. There will be three winners in three categories, including Best Concept, and we sure hope to be one of them. The organisers seem to follow a strict no bullshit guideline, which is quite refreshing:

“The three, deliberately simplistically titled categories express an oppositional standpoint towards the tendency of over-theorizing in the reception of contemporary art.”

There are also three things to look forward to now,
all happening on June 22nd, from 6pm:

  • The award ceremony, including pleasant surprises for 3 of the 28 nominees – that’s more than 10%!
  • The opening of the shortlisted works’ exhibition, which will include our Mother Of All Records.
  • Another wall-shaking sub-bass performance by us, using four record players and four WOW records.

Oh and of course there’s also an after party. If you want to attend, you’ll have to join the facebook event to RSVP, or you won’t get in!

Hope to see you there!
