With his current solo exhibition HATERS, Georg Klein once again brings a highly topical theme to the table, in two immersive installations for headphones and video: Dark Matter is designed as an individual experience: the visitor enters the initially dark, isolated room with a wireless headset that is connected to an orientation system via sensors. In the darkness, sound and visual elements emerge accordingly, leading into an immersive confrontation with ‘hate speech’ in right-wing extremist music and symbolism, the trail of which goes from a neo-Nazi music club (2002) to the assassination in Halle (2019).
The two-part installation Cuts & Creeds from 2010, on the other hand, leads into a comparative examination of the topic of suicide bombers – between Orient and Occident – on three different levels of documentation: sound, image, text. In both works, the “gamification of terror” plays an important role, which has emerged in recent years to a disturbing extent.
AARC (Artists Against Racism Cooperation) emerged as a reaction to the assassination in Hanau 2020, which led to a cooperation between members of the Errant Sound project space in Mitte and the Turkish project space ‘apartment project’ in Neukölln to bring an artistic discourse on racism to the public with newly developed productions.
