Alexander Hacke and Danielle de Picciotto, cultural ambassadors of modern Berlin, are stopping in Eugene to present this film talk and a concert the following evening at Tsunami Books. They will describe their nomadic life of film, music, and art collaboration with clips from some of their hundreds of transnational projects. Hacke is a composer and musician with Einstürzende Neubauten, a guest artist with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and the protagonist of Faith Akin's film Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul. Danielle de Picciotto is a musician, organizer, and visual artist, best known as the co-founder of Berlin's Love Parade, a street festival that became massively influential throughout Europe for the two decade after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
