Vladimir IvkovicPresented by SHAPE
Born and raised in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, Vladimir Ivkovic witnessed the peak of alternative culture and disintegration of the society in his formative years. The unexpected twists and turns he saw society undertake throughout this period are reflected in his work, which is eclectic, to say at the least.
His dark DJ-sets have surprising build-ups and compositions, show a wide range of influences and are full of wacky sound samples. Because of this, he has developed himself as one of the underground club music’s most revered selectors, celebrated for his amazingly fluid long-form sets full of undiscovered gems.
Ivkovic is a long-time resident at Salon des Amateurs in Düsseldorf, the city he currently lives. He is also the man behind Offen Music, a label specialized in authentic subjectivism.
This performance is presented in the framework of SHAPE (Sound, Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe).
