Nik Nowak (*1981 in Mainz, lives in Berlin) critically examines the use of sound as a weapon and medium of propaganda in his artworks. With Schizo Sonics he has realised a large-scale audio-visual installation with two powerful sound sculptures. A specially produced audio work deals with aspects of Cold War politics using examples of ideological and acoustic proxy wars, such as those fought in Berlin in the 1960s on the border between East and West Germany or in Jamaica in the 1970s, which continue to be waged in the border area between North and South Korea.

The exhibition is curated by Kathrin Becker.

The exhibition takes place as part of Berlin Art Week (9 – 13 September 2020).
