THERE IS NO I IN TEAM is a three-day event at PROGRAM, Berlin. Running from October 15th to 17th it brings together cutting-edge  video, live audiovisuals and performance art and creative communities from both China and Berlin. MovingCities will be part of Friday’s radio show on the topic of China’s Creative topography and Getting Lost Together.

Announcement from the curators:

The event is structured around the idea of making a live radio show focusing onrhizomatic networks stretching out from China to Berlin. The guests for THERE IS NO I IN TEAM belong to the same network of people who create their artistic projects on an individual basis but yet become public through a team of people who provide a context to make it public.

Taking its title from an American motivational statement, used to encourage people to abandon their own ego and self so as to be an effective part of the team, the project has been curated by a ‘team’ of European and Chinese curators (Pauline Doutreluingne, Keri Elmsly, Keith Whittle, Jiang Jian, Leo de Boisgisson, Anne Rottig and Beatrice Leanza) each contributing a unique cultural viewpoint, whilst also sharing their firsthand knowledge of contemporary China and its rapidly expanding arts and music scene, in all its cross-disciplinary nature and differing methods of representation.

Recently MovingCities was interviewed in Beijing by Leo de Boisgisson [86/33LINK] and we’re exctied to see how our previous collaboration – as part of This Is My City 09 – is gaining further momentum across continents and airwaves. Our contribution will happen on Friday October 16 from 4:00–6:00pm, as part of a radioshow including talks with Lin Yu (CN) and performance by Christine Woditschka (DE).
