Since its opening in February 1999, the cultural centre Batofar in Paris considered the European dimension of its agenda one of its biggest priorities. The activities of Batofar imagine new forms of international citizenship in an everyday practise.
With the focus on Paris and Berlin, the initiative PROJECT 1051 – A European Creation Of Hip Hop Music And Visual Arts, realised in collaboration with DISK/CTM and Sophiensaele, brings together Parisian musicians La Caution and Berlin video artists Transforma to create a multidisciplinary work of art, which wants to raise questions about European identity and the City as a concept.
Refering to the amount of road kilometers between the two cities, the project is called 'Project 1051'. The collective work of La Caution/Transforma is conceived, created and presented both in Paris and Berlin between June and October 2010. This process goes along with a series of actions addressing the local audiences such as artistic workshops, club nights and meetings.
PROGRAM IN BERLIN
// Date: Saturday, 11th and Sunday, 12th September 2010, 11am to 5 pm
// Venue: Sophiensaele
// Participants: 10 people aged 16 to 25
// Registration fee: 15 €
In the framework of 'Project 1051' ten young Parisians created a short movie based on their vision of their city: the major feelings the city inspired them with (crowd and solitude/ loneliness, multicultural influences, stress, urban arts…) led them to shoot and record sequences that they edited with the help of the artists from Transforma and La Caution.
Within two days, young Berliners (16-25) will now create a film similar to the one of the Paris workshop – a film based on their own vision of Berlin. This workshop will be conducted by the artists involved Luke Bennett and Simon Krahl from Transforma/Berlin, and Ahmed Mazouz and Mohamed Mazouz from La Caution/Paris.

Transforma is an artist group whose work focuses on video, performance, installations and music/video collisions. Transforma's work has been performed live and shown at festivals around the world. It is always highly rhythmic, digital yet handcrafted and visually challenging. Transforma collaborates with other artists and musicians to create pieces that blur borders of established genres in live performance, art & music.
Armed with a unique musical identity, the two brothers Hi‐Tekk and Nikkfurie made a solid reputation for themselves by relentlessly touring and taking part in numerous albums, projects and movie soundtracks (Oceans Twelve, “Paris je t’aime” by Gus Van Sant, etc.) since 1996. Their interest for image also took the shape of video directing. With their EP and LP’s, their energetic sounds and outstanding lyrics, they imposed themselves as one of the most atypical and innovative band in the French Hip Hop scene.
