During her last residency in Berlin, the swiss filmmaker and artist Laurence Favre discovered in Wedding a special place dedicated to music and child/youth development. Every week, kids and teenagers are welcome to join and play music. The focus is on: freedom, expression, creativity and a collective spirit. In collaboration with the music-coach, the children chose together the music and the instruments they want to play. For two months, Laurence Favre attended the jam sessions. Mixing photographs and sound, WHEN THE MUSIC TAKES OVER witnesses these moments when the music transcends the emotions.

The band Ella und Nik will also perform live at the gallery on the 23rd of June at 20:00 (doors open at 19:30). The exhibition runs until the 2nd of July.
