Kid Cash interviewed by Widewalls ahead of his solo show

Kid Cash was interviewed by Widewalls ahead of his solo show “Very Necessary” at Urban Spree.

Widewalls: Let’s start with the title of the show at Urban Spree, “Very Necessary”. It points out the necessity of showing street artworks in a gallery context: what can you tell us about this necessity?

KID CASH: At the end of the 1970s, the works of graffiti artists like Dondi, Lady Pink and Futura were exhibited in galleries. From today’s perspective it seems that the undertaking didn’t work. Around 2005 there was a veritable street art boom and again, there was the will to bring art from the streets into galleries. This development is still going on. Some artists have managed to exhibit their works regularly in white-cube galleries. But in my view, their reputation as „being authentic“ results from their work in public spaces. One fundamental finding is for me that it’s hardly possible to bring authenticity from the streets into the gallery. The reason for this is that is very simple: The space is just different. That’s why the artworks in galleries differ so much from those in the streets. I chose this simple fact to become the theme of my exhibition.

I want to describe an example: When I paint on a wall in the street, the wall tells me some stories. It is full of traces and has different surfaces. It is raw, full of holes, rock-hard, sprayed, and also full of insects. On the streets, people just take a glimpse at walls. The viewers pass by quickly and therefore the murals are quickly recognisable. They were painted to be seen from a distance or sometimes only for being photographed only. That’s why they tend to be relatively rough.

In contrast, when I paint on a canvas in my studio, the canvas is usually smaller than the walls outside in the streets. The surface of the canvas is smooth and it gives way. The fine structure is perceptible. At an artwork hanging in a gallery can be looked at from very close and intensively. The exhibition visitors can take a lot of time to look at the artworks.

For me it’s clear that my artworks on canvases differ from those I paint on walls in public spaces. In a gallery context, I just can’t do the same that I do on the streets! But both approaches get mutually inspired. That’s how I came to the title which became at the same time my topic. (…)

Following the 8th of May great program of Concerts & Party at Urban Spree with THE SACRED TRAVELERS & BKO QUINTET from Mali, INNER RHYTHM is back for another night of mayhem! ECOUTES AU VERT & TROPICAL TIMEWARP team up to bring you two special events featuring late afternoon garden chilling, great live music & hot dance party action with hard bopping djs playing African music and related afro, funky, tropical & disco grooves.

It starts at 6PM with the djs in the garden, some drinks and food under the trees, hopefully with a nice sun dawn over Warschauer on top.

Later at 21:30, ORCHESTRE TOUT PUISSANT MARCEL DUCHAMP will play in the concert room . This 6 piece band blends tropical post punk & afro-beat avant pop into their own musical brew. A captivating one of a kind band led by an extraordinary vocalist, featuring musicians on marimba, double bass, drums… hailing from Belgium, France & Switzerland, they just released a new album on Red Wig/Moi J’Connais. It is no coincidence that the band uses the name of one of the biggest dynamiters of 20th century art. Like him, it is deeply unconventional. Its name and dancing energy also come from legendary African orchestras like Orchestre Tout Puissant Konono n.1, OTP Polyrythmo… taking the audience to unknown and exotic jubilating bazaars.

Following the concert, the heat is not going to drop by any means, with the ANALOG AFRICA SOUNDSYSTEM taking on the decks. Together with his partner Pedo Knopp, Samy Ben Redjeb runs his highly influential blog & record label specialized in 1960’s & 1970’s raw, funky and psychedelic tropical sounds from Africa & Latin America. They will be supported by TROPICAL TIMEWARP’s own djs in the main room + COBEIA & BOOGIEMANN playing Disco, Boogie, Italo… in the disco dungeon!

We very much look forward to seeing your smiling faces and happy feet down at our Shrine!

Klone: The Survivor/The Guardian

This week, our friend klone came back to Berlin to paint over the bar façade. Last year, he put up some faces and skulls but this time he took it to the next level with this kitsune amidst a sea of boats.
