Saturday, 27.4.24
8 pm | Jim C. Nedd. Remembering Songs. Concert

To mark the publication of Jim C. Nedd's debut monograph Remembering Songs, TUNE invites the artist to curate a live programme that intimately connects with the book’s themes.

Nedd’s work blurs the line between fiction and documentary photography, drawing inspiration from geography, identity, and popular culture. Influenced by memories and Vallenato music’s storytelling, he crafts images that weave personal narratives with collective memory, utilising oral archives to capture stories and experiences.

On both evenings, a newly commissioned composition will be performed that blends accordion, guitar, and live poetry, showcasing genres from the Colombian-Caribbean region. Nedd will perform with electronic instruments, joined by Carlos Russo on Accordion and Peruvian Cajon, Hansel Castro on Guitar, and Flor Barcenas Feria with live poetry. On Friday, the event will feature a reading by Dr. Beatriz E. Balanta, and on Saturday, a listening session by artist and curator, Edna Martinez. 

New video works by the artist, produced in his native city, Valledupar, will be installed in the Westgalerie throughout the weekend, and on Saturday, Nedd's sound installation for the Terrassensaal, Recuerdos II (Memories II), will open and be installed until October 2024.

Please buy your ticket for the concerts online in advance. The installations in the Westgalerie and the Terrassensaal are accessible for free.
