    Past event

M I M I 's sets are tailored assemblages, collages channeled by her Afro-European cultural heritage and connexion to nature. As she uses different mediums, she doesn't stick to any precise musical style either but instead explores and combines continuously making her DJ sets and productions an organic blend of multiple genres including field recordings.

She released her first song on Berlin based musical label "Nia Records". As she describes her work as an ongoing conversation with nature, she recently started writing on topics such as anthropocentrism and biomimetics, as she strongly belivies that our faiths are intertwined. Considering herself as ecocentric whilst looking towards forward-thinking movements.

Cosmic Bodies on Friday January 6

On January 6, we co-curated a complementary program with Cherish Menzo, starting from chapter 02- Glitch is Cosmic from Legacy Russel's book Glitch Feminism.

“Submerge into an evening where three artistic works travel at the intersections of Speculative and Science fiction, Spirituality, Ancestry, Afro-futures, Black Posthuman dreams, Sonic textures, and Natural Worlds. In-between, pasts, presents, and futures where cosmic bodies ‘’the inconceivably vast’’ are the matter that allow us to witness and experience the abstract.” - Cherish Menzo

19:30 - Movements of Soul by Christian Yav
20:30 - D̶A̶R̶K̶MATTER by Cherish Menzo with Camilo Mejía Cortés
22:15 - soil sciences by M I M I
