On the occasion of the Kaleidoscope magazine’s cover story, which dedicates its front page to her, meets with the artist Anne Imhof followed by a DJ Set by Bill Kouligas.

With her acclaimed trilogy of experiential performative installations—Angst, Faust, and Sex—Imhof choreographed the disillusioned state of a generation battling against itself. Composed with a trio of collaborators, her music—now being released by PAN Records—conveys that same relentless symbolism, cathartic relief, and death drive.

5 pm - 6 pm: Conversation between Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel, Managing Director of Lafayette Anticipations and Anne Imhof.

6.30pm - 8.30: DJ Set of Bill Kouligas, founder of PAN Records.

Both KALEIDOSCOPE’s new issue and the newly released Faust record will be exclusively available at À Rebours, the shop of Lafayette Anticipations.
Anne Imhof is a painter, sculptor and performance artist who is degreed at the Hochschule für Gestaltung-Kunsthochschule Offenbach (Germany) and the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste Frankfurt.
Anne Imhof develops her work through a variety of techniques. The performance, one of the mediums frequently used by the artist, is for her just as much a live event as her documentary ensemble and its related objects. Her work questions power structures, encrypted communications and the unspoken rules of our contemporary society. Anne Imhof mixes subcultural references with an extreme conception of the experience of time and a filmic sense of image construction and framing.
Bill Kouligas is an artist, designer and musician based in Berlin. He is known as the founder and artistic director of the multidisciplinary platform and record label PAN, which has hosted artists such as Pan Daijing, Pelada, Anne Imhof, Puce Mary, Amnesia Scanner, Lucy Railton and Yves Tumor.
In his artistic practice Kouligas draws inspiration from diverse sources, traditions, and various subcultures. He adapts those sources and relates them to contemporary life through an evolving experimentation with different media in multidimensional works through sound, visual and performance. Under several aliases, Kouligas has produced, composed and released electronic music for nearly 15 years to date, and performed in venues such as London’s ICA, MoMA PS1, Volksbühne Berlin, Kammerspiele Munich, V&A Museum London, as well as at global festivals and club institutions (Berghain, Mutek, Unsound, Transmediale, CTM to name but a few). Throughout his work, he has collaborated with artists such as Harm van den Dorpel, Seth Price, Paweł Althamer, Spiros Hadjidjanos, Amnesia Scanner, Mat Dryhurst and Nora Khan, among others. His solo work and as well as his vision with the label shows a remarkable ability in pushing the boundaries of musical genres to undiscovered territories, which members of the global press (Frieze, Resident Advisor, Pitchfork, NPR, BBC, The Guardian, Red Bull Radio, MixMag, FACT Magazine, Flash Art and more) have rewarded with consistent appreciation.
