A repurposed organ controller pedal, a drum machine and a lap steel guitar come together to create a soundscape that draws upon the sacred steel tradition crossfaded with electronic loops that are both triumphant and stagnant. Drawing its title from Jesse Owens’ 1936 long jump in Berlin, where he accepted to take a small loss in distance by jumping from his towel instead of the fault line, this sound performance mitigates the acceptance of injustice as a form of resistance._______________________________________________Photo: Leone ContiniThe exchange between Thread und Villa Romana in 2018 was supported by the Heinrich Böll Stiftung Senegal and ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen).____________________________________________ACUD Galerie, ACUD MACHT NEU, Veteranenstraße 21, 10119 Berlin _______________________________________________Opening Freiraum in der Box: Wednesday, 10.
