Next Week in Munich – Kovacs, Waitangi Day, Lambchop

It’s a busy week for art this week – the Haus der Kunst has two excellent new exhibitions on, featuring Mark Leckey and David Adjaye, the Pinakothek der Moderne is showing works by seventeen video artists, and there’s a vernissage at Deborah Schamoni.

Alex Clare’s at the Muffathalle on Tuesday (the gig was originally planned for the Tonhalle), and tickets will be available for 38 € on the door.

Also on Tuesday, 24-year-old Kovacs is at Milla. She has a dark, brooding voice, and I’m a little bit in love:

For those of you who are German speakers, there’s a talk on Michel Houllebecq’s Submission at the Literaturhaus on Wednesday, led by the Welt’s book critic, Tilman Krause. Entrance costs 9 € and it’s sure to be a lively event.

From Thursday onwards, there’s a cool video exhibition on in the Pinakothek der Moderne. Creating Realities: Encounters Between Art and Cinema features

Tenacious D are at the Tonhalle on Friday, but they’re already sold-out too. Nachtkonsum on the Saturday, however, is still open to everyone – entrance costs 3 € and the flea market kicks off at 5pm.

Also on Friday, there’s a vernissage at Deborah Schamoni. Young German artist Thea Moeller will be presenting her work alongside Jonathan Penca, and the band Mutandini Karl will be providing the music over the course of the evening. It kicks off at 7pm in Mauerkircherstr. 186 (a 5 minute walk from the Sammlung Goetz).

Out in Germering, the Kiwis will be celebrating New Zealand’s Waitangi Day at Schusterhäusl on Friday. There will be a winter BBQ and All Black beer for just 4 €.

There’s a demo against the Munich Security Conference on Saturday. Demonstrators will be meeting at 1pm at Marienplatz and will head around the Glockenbachviertel to return to Marienplatz at around 4pm. The Security Conference is taking place from Friday to Sunday, and several inner-city roads will be blocked off, so try to use public transport to avoid traffic chaos.

Lambchop are at the Amerika Haus on Saturday. The Nashville band released their first single in 1993 (Nine/Moody Fucker), and are still touring today. Tickets are available for 30 € here.

There’s a cool event on at Milla on Sunday. Called Design meets Handwerk, you can check out products made by Munich designers, from shoes and bags, to jewelery and works of art, while listening to music, drinking a beer and dancing the night away. There’s free entrance until 7:30pm, then it costs 5 €.

There’s a street food/craft market at the Praterinsel from midday onwards on Sunday. As well as the markets, there will be a stage for musicians – and if you play music yourself, you can sign up for a session.

In Westend, the Fab Lab (in the Gewerbehof) will be holding an open day on Sunday, so if you’re keen to know how laser cutters and 3D printers work, check them out between 2pm – 5pm.

And, if you’re after some culture this week, the Cindy Sherman exhibition opened in the Sammlung Goetz last Thursday. The retrospective is showing around sixty works, in collaboration with the artist herself, and shows a broad overview of her entire work.

The Haus der Kunst also has a great exhibition on at the moment. Mark Leckey’s As If will run until the end of May, and the exhibition is structured in four parts, that also span his entire career. I’m looking forward to checking it out, and I’m disappointed I missed the vernissage on Thursday – I’d have loved to have seen him in person. If you’re interested in architecture, be sure to check out the David Adjaye exhibition at Haus der Kunst too. It’s his biggest exhibition so far, and he has a huge portfolio. He’s built homes for the likes of Juergen Teller and Alexander McQueen, and designed the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, and plenty more.

Have a great week, folks!
