All diese Gewalt
All diese Gewalt (All this Violence) is the solo project of Max, singer of Die Nerven. His third LP »Andere« (»Others«) was released in autumn 2020: a claustrophobic, multi-part meditation on loneliness. Among its contributors was Albertine Sarges, who also appears at Pop-Kultur this year, and for Rieger’s commissioned work, he has a much bigger focus on togetherness: »Andere« gets reworked in collaboration with further additional musicians; solipsism gives way to solidarity. In two group performances in the Kesselhaus, the audience and the band will be separated with translucent foil, offering the performers more intimacy with each other, while the audience is given a veiled impression of what happens when the individual merges into the collective – and togetherness overtakes loneliness.
