Tapes - ABYSSAL
Mitko Mitkov

In the context of the ABYSSAL at Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, three tapes were produced under the direction of Mitko Mitkov. 

The ABYSSAL is the physical headquarter of the BAD BOY JESUS CITY SWIMMERS CLUB in the Kunstverein’s Bar. The BAD BOY JESUS CITY SWIMMERS CLUB is an association that anyone—swimmers and non-swimmers alike—can join free of charge. It consists of a mailing list that sends out invitations to swim together as well as readers and playlists. Since May 2020 the Recordings from the Abyssal have been broadcasted, the BAD BOY JESUS CITY SWIMMERS CLUB went swimming and reading together, a publication by Mitko Mitkov was released and the bar ABYSSAL opened, furnished with works by Sevda Semer, Sebastian Kokus im Dialog mit der Jugend and Tilmann Junghans.

The two tapes "Aufzeichnungen aus dem Abyssal (A&B)" and "Aufzeichnungen aus dem Abyssal (C&D)" are documenting parts of the correspondent audio-program, which was broadcasted from May to July 2020. The tape "an image of an idea someone had some time ago" by Sebastian Kokus im Dialog mit der Jugend contains the audio track from the sound installation, which can currently be listened to in the ABYSSAL.
