Berliner Pilsner @ The Soccer Lounge / showing every game between until 10th July 2016


Doors: various

@ 5 O’Meara Street, SE1 1TE London

Free entry

Berliner Pilsner presents: The best place to enjoy the Euros. Off the beaten track and nestled under a railway arch, Berliner Pilsner is asking fans of the beautiful game to place their trust in The Soccer Lounge where the beer flows and the football’s always on – this is the ultimate way to experience the Euros.

The lounge is taking up residence for one month in the best of venues, bringing the outside in, at a vault beneath London Bridge. Bringing a decidedly Eurotrash vibe to the bar, Berliner Pilsner is calling all to celebrate the best of football past and present – the goals and the glory, the misery and the mullets. Come on down and take a punt on your team. It might not be so bad after all.

And for the VIPs Berliner is providing an extra level of synthesised German-based enjoyment – Ze Deck Chair Experience. The 12 most exclusive seats in the house guarantee a good time, whether you’re winning or losing, as Berliner provides towels (to mark your spot, of course), sunscreen and a round of beers to get you going. Can’t say fairer than that, can you?

Berliner Pilsner has been a stalwart of Berlin culture since its introduction to the German Democratic Republic in 1963 and is brewed according to the German purity law and finished with yeast from its own pure breed. The beer’s label boasts the notorious Berlin Bear, a unique mascot and symbol of the capital that appears across Berlin in the form of ‘Berlin Buddy Bears’ – a symbol of tolerance and openness.

FOUND @ The Foundling Museum / until 4th Sep 2016


Tue-Sat 10-17
Sun 11-17
Mon closed

@ The Foundling Museum, 40 Brunswick Square, London WC1N 1AZ

Tickets: £10.25

Foundling Fellow Cornelia Parker has invited over sixty outstanding artists from a range of creative disciplines to respond to the theme of ‘found’, reflecting on the Museum’s heritage.

Combining new and existing work with found objects kept for their significance, this major exhibition unfolds throughout the Museum, interacting with historic works in the Collection and with each other. Parker’s inspiration has in part been taken from the Museum’s eighteenth-century tokens – small objects left by mothers with their babies as a means of identification should they ever return to the Foundling Hospital to claim their child.

Artists participating in FOUND include: Ron Arad RA, Phyllida Barlow RA, Jarvis Cocker, Richard Deacon RA, Tacita Dean RA, Jeremy Deller, Edmund de Waal, Brian Eno, Antony Gormley RA, Mona Hatoum, Thomas Heatherwick RA, Christian Marclay, Mike Nelson, Laure Prouvost, David Shrigley, Bob and Roberta Smith RA, Wolfgang Tillmans RA, Marina Warner, Gillian Wearing RA and Rachel Whiteread. Twenty-two Royal Academicians have contributed to the show, echoing the role that the Foundling Hospital played in the development of the Royal Academy. Founded in 1739 to care for babies at risk of abandonment, the Foundling Hospital was supported by the leading artists of the day, many of whom donated work, thanks to the revolutionary involvement of the artist William Hogarth and the composer George Frideric Handel. The Royal Academy’s origins can be traced to the collective mobilisation of artists and the promotion of British art that took place at the Hospital during the eighteenth century.

UK’s only dedicated audiovisual performing arts festival bringing together a host of incredible and diverse artists from around the globe for a three-day feast of live cinema, audio/video remixing and visual music from both established and emerging artists with performances, workshops, talks and networking events.

Boasting a live AV performance by Cassetteboy as headline, the festival programme will also include a special DJ set by Plaid (Warp Records), a live AV remix set from Addictive TV, abstract visual electronica from Sculpture, bass heavy electro AV from Germany’s incite/, video turntablism from Solid Steel’s DJ Cheeba, live cinema from The Light Surgeons, plus music from Mexico’s Incognito Traveller (BBE records) and a selection of artists and VJs from across Europe.

Coldcut’s Matt Black (Ninja Tune), Cymatics expert Zach Walker and Leon Trimble host free workshops including a Beginners Guide to AV.

Founded by five leading practitioners of live video art and part-funded by the Arts Council England, SPLICE aims to engage, educate and entertain both existing and new audiences within this fast-growing cultural field.

Festival co-founder, Addictive TV’s Graham Daniels says “The live AV scene has steadily developed over the last decade and years ago there were very few of us creating AV performances, there were also virtually no platforms to showcase artists. Youtube and social media have changed all that and now with the right tools, creative minds everywhere are experimenting with this visual vocabulary. It’s fantastic to be doing this, Splice has been a long time coming!”

Part-funded by the EU’s Creative Europe programme, SPLICE is the UK branch of the wider EU cultural programme AV Node, linking 13 similar art and technology festivals across Europe, supporting and developing the fields of live video performance art. University of the Arts’ London College of Communication are also on board as a partner and other supporters of SPLICE include video technology pioneers QED Productions, visual software companies Resolume, MadMapper and VDMX and media partner Resonance FM.
