‘through the wormhole’was created during "Nachtkultur / Нічна культура", a German-Ukrainian electronic music residency at the end of 2020. The residency initiated by Cashmere Radio (Berlin) and Visual Culture Research Center (Kyiv) invited 12 artists, 6 from each country with the aim of fostering intercultural dialogue between the two locations.
International meetings in non-virtual reality became impossible due to the COVID-19 measures, so the 11-track compilation became an imaginary place of encounter.
Cashmere Radio is an experimental community radio station based in Berlin-Lichtenberg. The ambition of the station is to preserve and further radio and broadcasting practices by playing with the plasticity and malleability of the medium.
Visual Culture Research Center (VCRC, Kyiv) is an independent initiative, which is engaged in publishing and artistic activities, scientific research, organisation of public lectures, discussions, and conferences. VCRC is an organiser of Kyiv Biennial since 2015.
The project was implemented within the "MEET UP! German-Ukrainian Youth Encounters" programme with support from the Foundation "Remembrance, Responsibility and Future" (EVZ).
