One Hot Summer Party: Jan Sonnergaard countdown, July 16

(Scroll down for English version)
Fredag 16. juli afholder IMO sommerens sidste fest. Bag pladespilleren finder man forfatter Jan Sonnergaard (DK), der vil deejaye nedtællingen til planetens totale udslettelse. På plakaten er den kolde krigs undergangsmusik plus en håndfuld æstetisk forførende billeder.

Jan Sonnergaard udgav sidste år Om atomkrigens betydning for Vilhelm Funks ungdom, der er en kontrafaktisk historiefortælling om livet i 80’erne i atomtruslens skygge. Den danske forfatters første roman starter med kapitel 20 og tæller derefter ned til kapitel 1, hvor verden går under. Hvert kapitel indledes med et citat fra periodens rockhits – fra Talking Heads’ ”Life During Wartime” over Black Sabbaths ”Electric Funeral” og Kraftwerks “Radioaktivität” til David Bowies ”We Are the Dead”.
Festen er arrangeret i anledning af udstillingen Second-hand, der tematiserer historiebevidst genbrug. Samme aften kl. 20 på IMO viser Caroline Sascha Cogez (DK/F) for anden gang fundne erotiske fotografier og 8mm film – denne gang med fokus på fødder. IMO åbner kl. 17 med sidste udstilling i serien “Sounds up close” i den gamle telefonkabine Phonebox.
Friday June 16 IMO throws the last party this summer. Behind the decks you find author Jan Sonnergaard (DK) who will deejay an apocalyptic countdown to the complete destruction of the planet. The play list is packed with cold war doom music added visually appealing imagery.

Last year Jan Sonnergaard published Om atomkrigens betydning for Vilhelm Funks ungdom or How the
Atomic War affected Vilhelm Funk’s Youth. The Danish writer’s first novel is a counterfactual historical account of life in the 80’s in the shadow of the Bomb. The story starts with chapter 20 and counts down to chapter 1 where the world is ravaged. Every chapter opens with a quote from a song of the time – from Talking Heads’ “Life During Wartime” and “Electric Funeral” by Black Sabbath and “Radioaktivität” by Kraftwerk to David Bowie’s “We Are the Dead”.
The party is part of the programme for the current exhibition at IMO, Second-hand, which takes as its theme historically aware recycling. The same evening at 8 pm Caroline Sascha Cogez (DK/F) shows, for the second time, erotically charged photos and 8mm film found on a flea market – this time focusing on feet.
The evening begins at 5 pm with the opening of the last exhibition in the series “Sounds up close” in the old phone cabin renamed Phonebox.
