Hanoi-ReConnect: Verbindung

Jul 3, 07 pm
Livestream via Goethe-Institut Hanoi

From Goethe Institut:

The background for the audiovisual performance is an encounter. Linh Hà and AGF met during an artist exchange and residency program called Blind Signal in 2019 in Hanoi, Vietnam. Both artists collaborated in Hanoi and Berlin together and discovered an interesting connection to their backstories.

Linh Hà’s parents spent their young adulthood studying and working, like many other Vietnamese ‘guest’ workers (Gastarbeiter), in the former GDR, the East German Soviet occupied socialist part of Germany, during the 80s. At that time, AGF was just a teenager behind the wall finding her own way. Linh Hà ‘s parents and AGF must have crossed paths in the party scene and student clubs in the wild end of 1980s in Halle/Saale, shortly before the Berlin Wall came down, but they never met. After the wall came down Linh Hà was born in Berlin when AGF started her first steps into her practice as an electronic musician. This special Vietnamese-German history playing out 30 years later in Hanoi, Vietnam where they met (again). AGF was invited to Linh Hàs home to meet her parents and memories from that time were exchanged. Another detail that draws the history together is that AGF grew up in a socialist ghetto city nicknamed Ha-Neu (i.e.: Halle-Neustadt, abbreviated and spoken: as Ha-Neu)…

Hanoi-Exhibition “The Mekong – Stories of Man”

Until Sep 12
L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street

From L’Espace:

Lam Duc Hien travelled the Mekong river on a 4,200 km stretch, following its waters from the bustling River of Nine Dragons delta in Vietnam all the way to its source in the snow-covered Tibetan plateau. This cross-continent journey bears a special meaning for Lam as a French-Vietnamese photographer who spent his childhood on the shores of the Mekong in Laos, where it is affectionately called Mother of Rivers.

In this visual diary, Lam interweaves his personal story with that of the river’s current inhabitants. Here, the Mekong simultaneously connects and divides lands, cultures, and destinies.
