MUSIC ACROSS BORDERS: Beat Rhythms and Rock the expression of freedom - but: Strictly Forbidden ! (in the former GDR [DDR]).

Radio Production.

About Music and Politics in the Former GDR (DDR). Originally a massively successful programme in Germany that brought in to the German radio station a million enquiries for further information. It looks at the music that was being produced and listened to under the noses of the communist regime. It contains interviews with musicians and in particular features Wolfgang Bierman, a musician who was sent into exile but who has now been given honorary citizenship of Berlin. This is somewhat ironic as Berlin is currently run by a coalition that includes the communist party (production for Popmundial and BBC).

Renata Fernandez, High Street Hunting - It's a Good Investment ! 

Tricycle Gallery, London

This unique retrospective brought together some basis of a unique body of work, that transcends the Latin American background. It explains with some key works the why and wherefores. As promised it created discussion from the first moment. Curator: J Bohne

September 2003

Renata Fernandez - Dead Monkey Studio 

Copeland Industrial Park, Peckham (Photos left column 15,17,18,19,20)

Dead Monkey Studio

.... because it smelled so much...

There was a butcher in the front, when you visited from Peckham Rye Station. The back was a wonderful artistic invironment. This is her second studio in London - the second warm up show. It turned out to be to increase the "Friends of"-circle, yet another event by invitation only, and another opportunity for friends to see old and "fresh" work, including the first works from London ! Curator: DLJ Bohne

June 2003

Renata Fernandez - Do Salsa But Do It Right ! 

New Cross Gate, London (Photo left column 16)

This marks the opening of the Renata's first studio in London. Renata Fernandez moved to London and promised herself to wait a maximum of three months to find a studio. New Cross Gate was the first one. This studio warm up show was on invitation only for friends across Europe that collect her art work. Each invitation had a "unique touch" by the artist. In a informal setting, work from different times and location were put together as a first "retrospective" attempt to show the complexity of interest a methods used by Fernandez in her creative process. Curator: DLJ Bohne
