Goethe-Institut x Somerset House Studios Residency

Goethe-Institut London and Somerset House Studios are collaborating to establish a new international artist residency programme to support a Germany-based artist working at the intersection of music, art and technology.

For the inaugural edition, we welcome artist, DJ, writer, and performer Juliana Huxtable. While we worked remotely with Juliana last May due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now looking forward to welcoming her in London for two months from October this year.

Juliana Huxtable - Somerset House Studios Juliana Huxtable - Somerset House Studios | © Juliana Huxtable Using the structures of music as mediums in her multimedia universe, Juliana Huxtable is a DJ and musician singular in her approach. Where her visual art and poetry navigate the complexification of desire in a life increasingly mediated by technology, her music utilizes the sounds of technology itself to construct parallel realities to be inhabited and embodied in rhythm and harmonic tableaux.

Her sets skillfully deploy the notion of sampling, and re-blogging as DJ strategies, ecstatically mixing an array of influences that frolic at the boundary of genre intuition and experimentation. At once an assertion of freedom and an ode to the evolutionary structure of electronic music subcultures, she aspires to the sublime in what can often only be described as a witchcraft seance behind the decks on stage.
