Mindpirates

Mindpirates Mindpirates is an international artist collective uniting visual artists, filmmakers, musicians, designers and curators.

Mindpirates is an international artist collective uniting visual artists, filmmakers, musicians, designers and curators. Our projects and public art events are concerned with the role of art within contemporary culture and in interplay with sociology and ecology. Mindpirates are interested in cultural developments that foster new lines of inquiry, new artistic practices and new ways of interacting with an active public. Following an independent, transdisciplinary and collaborative approach, we aim to promote the production and understanding of contemporary art practices, expand the reach of cultural agency and experiment with new forms of examination, cooperation and distribution. Mindpirates were founded in 2007 in Berlin, and have since vastly expanded the scope of our activities. Our projects and programs have been reaching a large, diverse audience, locally and worldwide. Since 2015 Mindpirates operate their Institut für Sehsüchte – THE HOLE – in a former retail space at Schlesische Straße 37 in Berlin.

PROBLEMA is a thought-provoking documentary essay directed by Ralf Schmerberg and produced by Mindpirates. It is one of the outcomes of the ambitious large-scale research project and Internet platform dropping knowledge. The project culminated in a final round table discussion at the historic Bebelplatz in Berlin:

When the talented Meret Becker asked me to shoot a music video for a song from her album "Deins & Done", I listened to it and instinctively knew I had to make it a complete film. The result is "Meret - Seven Deaths of a Bird", a poetic visual compilation of seven songs that narrate the intimate and surreal journey through the torn heart of a passionate woman. Here the excerpt "For U From U"...

The fashion sharks are in Berlin for Bread & Butter. Here's what happens when obsession with fashion takes a dark turn... Possession is a short film about a golden dress that carries death. Made in 2012, it's a collaboration with Moga e Mago. Soundtrack composed by Rudi Moser, Rüde Hagelstein and Tiefschwarz.

When Bush Junior went crazy on Iran's President Ahmadinejad we people realised how little we can do when world leader psychopaths go mad. Next round of this stupid, deadly game is ahead of us with Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un.

The video clip is from the Table of Free Voices in 2006 following the question "Why is an Iranian nuclear bomb supposed to be more dangerous than an American, Israeli or French?"

It´s time to raise our voices loud, loud, loud!

It seems like it is time to go back to the streets in the US and anywhere else.

Summer time is festival time. 5 years ago the Mindpirates created "The Lovers", bringing together 400 participants on an idyllic island outside of Berlin for a twenty-four hour musical jam session. The result was a cathartic tempest, a caged whirlwind of both love and hate, epiphany and confusion. The Odyssean experiment sparked a dialogue about utopias, dreams and the profound ambiguity inherent in the relationship between humans and nature.

Watch the trailer we did for the exhibition below!

G20 the resistance in Hamburg is playing their usual game of cat and mouse, which reminds me of Arundhati Roy's question in PROBLEMA:
"Do we need a biodiversity of resistance?”

With #G20 protests in full swing, this question is more topical than ever. What do you think?

See and hear what Willem Dafoe, Wim Wenders, Oliviero Toscani, Udi Aloni, Dr. Cornel West, Bianca Jagger, and Dr. Mark Benecke have to say in this excerpt from PROBLEMA.

In 2015 my friend Nadya Tolokonnikova asked me to film PussyRiot's performance at Banksy's Dismaland and make a music video from the footage. I was honoured to be a part of the project! "Refugees In" is a harsh but necessary call for more tolerance, solidarity and humanity.

Teatime in Heiligendamm is my contribution to the movie TROUBLE(http://trouble-der-film.de/)
This film is relevant even after ten years have passed by and will be relevant ten years down the line.

The story behind the making of this film is rather a driven one:
Mindpirates had brought together 100 filmmakers, photographers, bloggers, designers, and programmers to report and reflect on the events surrounding the G8 Summit in Heiligendamm. The outcome was the film called "TROUBLE." Watch it if you can.

I always perceived the world of social networking as a thick forest rummaged by cacophonous groups of people on a quest to find like-minded individuals. In 2009, I had the chance to reflect this understanding in a project commissioned by O2/MTV.

Today, this forest looks even more denser with familiar faces in extravagant costumes. :)
