Form Follows Funktion is a principle associated with modernist architecture and industrial design in the 20th century. The principle is that the shape of a building or object should be primarily based upon its intended function or purpose. This series of events will feature international artists of two major movements: contemporary arts & advanced music.

For the second issue, we are proud to present Ileana Pascalau who lives and works in Berlin after studying Art History and Fine Arts at the National University of Arts in Bucharest as well as the University of Arts in Berlin. Her work focuses on the representation of amusement which leads us to our musical program which features GERD – to many one of the most timeless house producers and DJs out there. The Italien duo Hard ton will be joining him to deliver their larger than life disco sound. Akirahawks – part of the Homopatik label and one of Berlin’s hidden gems – will round up this lovely line up.

Her drawings focus on the representation of amusement practices found in the desire patterns of the contemporary urban night-life. The viewers are confronted with rituals of enjoyment, in which gestures animated by obscenity are captured like in a baroque tableau vivant. She is visually exploring the field of concepts like lust and pleasure with the same attention of a forensics analyzing the body of a crime scene. Details of skin, hair, clothing and bodily fluids are put under the looking glass. Even the medium of drawing and painting acts like a dissection instrument, exposing the intricate volumes and textures of the pathology of nocturnal amusements.

Gerd is the super productive and loveably outspoken Dutchman considered by many to be one of the most timeless house producers and DJs out there. He is at home crafting classic house bangers (as NY Stomp) as he is Chicago indebted tracks (as Geeeman) and also turns out deeper fair under his given name on labels like his own reliable 4lux, as well as Clone, Defected and many others.

Hard Ton are the talian duo with a larger than life disco sound and a surprising love of metal. Sylvester-styled falsettos conjure up memories of smoky dancefloors during the heady days of Hi-NRG, which combined with a contemporary sound of accelerated beats and screaming acid basslines, shows a nod to the past can result in a slap across the face for the present.

Akirahawks runs the ‘House Mannequin’ imprint alongside his label partner Shingo Suwa, which has enjoyed major support from true "wide-eyed" House legends.
