New Exhibition by Blue and Joy

On December 1st, Urban Spree Gallery is proud to host Berlin’s first solo show of contemporary artists Blue and Joy.

Blue and Joy is an Italian-born, Berlin-based contemporary art duo made of Fabio La Fauci (Milan 1977) and Daniele Sigalot (Rome 1976).

The artistic project was born in 2005 and since then, the duo has been challenging the codes of contemporary art through their doppelgänger characters Blue and Joy. Using various techniques such as mosaic, aluminum, video, drawing and painting, their abstract or figurative installations are always stunning and challenging (aluminum paper planes, Freedom Tower Museum, Miami, 2011).

Titled “The Superficial Essence of a Deep Appearance“, Blue and Joy’s new solo show at Urban Spree will consist of 3 huge canvases made of modular mosaics, the latest evolution of a technique that the La Fauci and Sigalot have began to explore since their debut exhibition 8 years ago.

“The Superficial Essence of a Deep Appearance” is a massive body of works made of method, irony, precision, lightness, seriousness and many doubts.

As part of the exhibition, Blue and Joy will paint a huge mural on Urban Spree’s Artist Wall off Warschauer Str. As well, the Italian duo will be a releasing a special series of hand-pulled screenprints made in collaboration with Urban Spree’s resident Dolly Demoratti (Mother Drucker), including a very special release. As part of our new shop opening, Blue and Joy will also run a pop up corner with self-made objects and goodies.

Krake Festival 2015 Art Exhibition

For the whole week of the Krake Festival, the Krake team has set up an art exhibition at Urban Spree Galerie.

The following works will be exhibited or performed:



A bright mul­ti­color laser beam points at a black reflec­tive sheet of plas­tic hang­ing freely from the ceil­ing. Most of the light is absorbed by the plate, turned into heat. A small part is reflected to a white screen on the oppo­site side of the room. The heat cre­ates defor­ma­tions and induces struc­tural changes of the sur­face of the plate, which leads to dynamic and com­plex reflec­tion pat­terns. The laser beam scans over the sur­face of the plate in slow ran­dom move­ments and leaves traces of destruc­tion. The light pat­terns on the pro­jec­tion screen make the process vis­i­ble.
By adding more and more imper­fec­tions to the sur­face of the plas­tic plate, the result­ing pat­terns become increas­ingly more inter­est­ing until a cer­tain thresh­old is reached after which the process seems to reverse. More destruc­tion leads to less inter­est­ing results, end­ing ulti­mately after a long time with just a dif­fuse reflec­tion of light. The instal­la­tion becomes blind.

Special thanks to LaserAnimation Sollinger, Berlin, for their support.

MR-808 by Moritz Simon Geist

Sonic Robots per­form elec­tronic music — with mechanic robots! The wardrobe-sized MR-808 is a robotic drum instal­la­tion, which fea­tures eleven sounds of the infamous elec­tronic drum machine “TR-808”, which were replaced by mechan­i­cal actu­a­tors and phys­i­cal tone generators.

DISCO GHOST by Julia Drouhin

This French artist liv­ing in Tasmania/Australia cre­ates choco­late records with hits from dead musi­cians, which can be heard and eaten by the audience.

Performing on Tuesday daytime and Saturday night only.


This interactive mapping sculpture is based on geometry exploration, and how using this path can disrupt our perception. Graphical patterns, visual illusions, dynamic geometry tesselations are algorithmically generated in realtime by the system with the help of the observer. 103 paper pyramids as a canvas to play with, changing the shape constantly like in an illusory metamorphic dream.

Exhibited from Wednesday onwards only.


An installation featuring 10 motorized pendulums including 10 loudspeakers at their ends to discover the structure and spatial impact of dynamic waves within an audiovisual area.

Exhibited from Wednesday onwards only.


You are invited to experience a surreal club situation and become part of a seemingly social situation, which won’t develop as expected.
Since the installation can only be entered alone, please expect waiting time.

Performing on Friday daytime only.

The following artists will be show­ing their work on Urban Spree’s wall dur­ing the week.

Die Letzte Metro Presents ; Farfara Live on Basement

Farfara – Live @ Urban Spree’s Basement – 19th of February – Doors open @ 21:00

FARFARA are a three-piece originating from Istanbul who have been playing together since their early teenage years.
A host of bedroom recordings, live shows and an unquenchable thirst for improvisation has seen the band develop from their early days of shoegaze and ambient rock to a more psychedelic kraut-driven sound. Ethereal guitar effects mix with drums, bass and synths to create an all-encompassing, visceral experience. With guitarist and vocalist, Etkin Cekin now based in Berlin and heavily active in the experimental music scene, the band has taken a further step in their evolutionary journey.

After a two days recording session of Jam and improvisations with guess artists Ira using a 6 gongs wall and Olaf using an original Moog Voyager, the big band is going to perform live in public on Thursday the 19th.

Farfara also performed on 16.02. at Lido supporting Deerhoof, and will perform on 27.02 at Acud, supporting the great Derdiyoklar –
