TEST PRESS Exhibition (NL)


TEST PRESS is a display of student publications from the archive of designer, collector and teacher Henk Groenendijk. These publications have been produced by students of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam over a period of 20 years. The publications in that archive have been collected as a byproduct to many years of teaching and balance on the fine line between the classroom and the world beyond education. They highlight a transition from what in the late 90s was referred to as ‘Dutch Design’, becoming more international and open, removed from an imposed national style. The archive is made up of almost 500 publications (often unique or produced in small print runs) and has a large variety of methods, aesthetics and topics ranging through language, typography, and contemporary visual culture to name a few. In cooperation with the Palace of Typographic Masonry, the exhibition and magazine 'Test Press' were compiled by Matthias Kreutzer, Elisabeth Klement and Henk Groenendijk of which a selection will be presented at REDO.

KRIS BAHA (AU/DE)


We have joined our forces with our friends from Servis to bring to Prishtina the Australian DJ-producer and sound engineer Kris Baha.
Kris Baha heads up Power Station Records, a label that stemmed from a weekly club night he ran with brother Dan and Michael Delany in Melbourne, before relocating to Berlin three years ago. Recent releases have come from dane//close, Disrute, and piska power, while Baha also put out a solo EP in 2016. His later solo work has landed on CockTail d’Amore, Bahnsteig 23, and, most recently, Pinkman; while in collaboration with Dreems as Die Orangen, Baha tours live and also shared a full-length last year, titled Zest. Sonically speaking, his work leans towards industrial and wave—dark, deep, and twisted but not without a playful, energetic feel.

TETRIS (XK)


TETRIS is a Prishtina-based group of art outfitters, creating soundscapes based on hypnotic phrases from a myriad of synths and deep bass.
