21+, 10p-1a
$20 advance for concert only ($30 advance for Friday concert + Saturday party at Good Room)

The Bunker New York is proud to host the Giegling collective on the first weekend of their worldwide Planet Giegling tour.

This event page is for the concert at Knockdown Center on Friday February 3, but we encourage everyone to buy the two night ticket that allows you to enter both this concert and the club night at Good Room on Saturday.

On Friday night, there will be a concert performed by the Giegling Ensemble (Ateq, Edward, Kettenkarussell, VRIL) where they will join forces and collaborate and improvise Giegling's non-dancefloor music. There will also be a pop up record shop where you can buy rare and out of print Giegling records, including a special record you can only buy on this tour. Also, many of the visual artists who are a key part of the Giegling collective will have work on display. We have a few other surprises up our sleeves as well.

On top of everything else, we are incredibly excited to finally present an event at Knockdown Center, one of the most extraordinary venues in New York City. more about that here:

the official word from giegling themselves explaining this tour:

"return to planet giegling

once upon a time there was a place far away from everything, where we could be together and create. and this creation would end in endless nights of colours and sounds. from these nights we grew giegling. before giegling was a label it was a group of friends trying to catch this special atmosphere through all kinds of methods: film and photography, painting, walking, installing, performing and in the end partying.

for us it was always the most valuable aspect to come together and to bring all those different unfinished bits and pieces of everybody together and then all of a sudden it would all make sense and manifest itself in the deepest and most meaningful way, which was often quite surprising.

since then giegling transformed quite a bit and became many things by traveling through all those minds and hearts. and on that journey one can easily lose oneself in all these reflections and institutions.

but for us giegling will always be us. with all the things we love to do.

for us giegling is a approach that you can adapt for everything. it is a way of feeling and thinking. a way of creating and producing. a way of living. a way of sharing. a recipe to become one.

planet giegling will explore all the hidden spots of the giegling universe. it will be a journey back to our roots and into our future. it is a holistic approach that will allow us to try out a lot of new things and also bring back stuff we almost forgot on the way. it is one step closer to a " gesamtkunstwerk". a dream of operating on all levels together and in self awareness overcoming all burden and boundaries.

planet giegling tour 2017

in february we will take off for a two month adventure all together. this includes all the people that have been with us from day one: painters, light technicians, sculptors, musicians, curators, djs, dancers, friends and creators of all kinds will join to visit 18 cities all over the world, to come as close as possible.

the tour will include seated concerts, silent discos, club nights, exhibitions, performances, sculptures, installations and many other surprises. all of this will take place in some of our favorite venues that will be transformed into planet giegling.

on the whole journey all of us will participate in every event, either performing or through other creative contributions. the seated concerts will be dedicated to all the giegling non-dance music where all the live playing artists will join forces and collaborate and improvise as the giegling ensemble. the exhibitions will showcase a broad spectrum of what has been produced within the collective beyond music. therefore collective and individual works will come together to show the roots of that atmosphere and to explore new methods.

for all of us this tour is the biggest challenge so far and we are hoping to see a lot of open and excited eyes, ears and hearts ready to dive deep into the forests of planet giegling.

it is a return to the place we are coming from. and we are happy to take you there. but this as well is another beginning. it is the declaration of what and how we want to create, and a chance to explore all the unlived parts of this collective body.
