“Not: Art Not: Non-Art Not: Both Art and Non-Art Not: Neither Art nor Non-Art.” This sentence by George Brecht could be the credo for the British ensemble Apartment House: an overview across a broad horizon of the most diverse types of music of our time in which it has perhaps not been established what works are really ‘art’ and which are not. When the cellist and visual artist Anton Lukoszevieze founded the ensemble in 1995, naming it after John Cage’s monumental orchestral work Apartment House 1776, he created a fluid group of musicians who primarily focused on experimental composers and artists still unknown within the European and international cultural world. The program for the Darmstadt Summer Course 2021 reflects this impetus. With the exception of Ryoko Akama who supervised one of the electronic ateliers in the summer course 2018, all other names are new to Darmstadt – even the ensemble itself which has astonishingly enough never been a guest at previous summer courses.
