In the basement of the Polymedialer Ponyhof, three artists show various works.

In his installation, Elias Hamman explores the invisible places of urban silence. Using special microphones, he records sounds that were previously inaudible, revealing the invisible frequencies that surround us. Immerse yourself in an almost rhythmic sound burden that we often cannot consciously perceive, even though we are walking through a soup of noise. Using headphones or speakers combined with blindfolding makes the experience more immersive while allowing you to rediscover the silence.

Isabel Rudek invites you to a cabin, the “Quiet Place”. Inspired by public toilets in urban areas, this is a place where you can recharge your batteries for a moment, or not. A television shows, among other things, tutorials showing different ways to relax — from a liberating scream to listening to the soothing sounds of birds. You will be guided through the underground of Berlin and can experience a lot.

Vicky Janke presents a series of illustrations that capture snapshots from her own everyday life. In search of the “Islands of Silence" she shares her surreal perspectives on the big city. Enter a world where Alexanderplatz is surrounded by nature and typical symbols such as the television tower merge into a fantastic landscape. Each image is accompanied by headphones, enabling an acoustic journey through urban chaos and natural harmony.

Discover the hidden oases of silence in the middle of the urban jungle and experience contrasts between noise and quiet, the complexity of urban life and the longing for moments of relaxation.
