Daadada Exhibition in London
Daadada is the forthcoming exhibition of the 2008/09 art scholarship holders of the renowned German academic exchange programme DAAD. It combines art work from recent postgraduates of The Royal College of Art, Goldsmiths, Slade School of Fine Art, Central Saint Martins, The Bartlett and the University of Westminster.

For the fourth year in a row the event is taking place in the Ada Street Gallery close to vibrant Broadway Market, heart of London’s gentrified east end. It opens Thursday the 1st of October and lasts until Sunday the 4th. Led by curator Lisa Marei Schmidt 10 German artists, Claudia Djabbari (Fine Arts), Charlotte Erckrath (Architecture), Berit Greinke (Future Textiles), Verena Hoch (Architecture), Laura Kuch (Fine Art), Agata Madejska (Photography), Heide Nord, Kathrin Spirk (Photography), Jan Stradtmann (Photography) and me, are presenting pieces of their last year’s work.

I’ll show a modified, single channel version of Crash. It’s going to be more chaotic, beefed up with even more information in terms of stock quotes and additional news headlines concerning the 18 listed companies that were mostly responsible for the financial breakdown.

The private view on Thursday, October 1st, 6pm is kindly supported by the Broadway Market must-visit, the café and delicatessen shop La Bouche.
DATE: 1st – 4th October 2009

PLACE: Ada Street Gallery
ADDRESS: 2a Ada Street, London E8 4QUA

The Frankfurt am Main design studio Pixelgarten, recently highlighted in the Neuland – The future of German graphic design book, designed an innovative folded stunning 50 pages exhibition catalogue. I guess we’ll be distributing the leftovers online to anyone who’s interested after the show ended. Send me an email if you’re interested and I’ll see if I can keep some specimens. UPDATE: We kept some copies as expected. For 6,- GBP you’ll get your very own copy of the catalogue, shipping included.

This is the online portfolio for motion and design projects and related research of Nico Roicke. I'm a graduate of MA Communication Design, pathway Digital Media, at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London. Also I'm part of the motion design studios Sir ja sir and Buchstabenschubser.

Beside motion graphics (or motion design, if you prefer) I'm the co-founder of the fanzine and weblog Jackpot Baby! - New digital pop culture (all texts unfortunately in German language) and I write for Berlin's finest Webblog Spreeblick - Pop, Politics, Products & Positions (German again). Go and catch up some of my latest tweets on Twitter (English and German, it's really hard to tell) or take a glance at some of my Flickr pics and Vimeo vids.
