Das Hund For Freedom is a new multi-disciplinary artwork by artists Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski, presenting a visionary exploration of our contemporary world.
 
Das Hund For Freedom explores the artists' concerns about their place in a late capitalist society which increasingly seeks to commodify creativity. Spanning a four-year period (2015–18) in which the artists travelled across the UK and USA, filming the urban landscapes of London and Los Angeles and the deserts of Colorado and California. The work is a poetic reflection on the current global political turmoil and reimagines radical counterculture ideas that are returning to the popular imagination. 
 
Das Hund For Freedom will tour across the UK between September and November 2018, in collaboration with nine venues partners. Sonic performances and poetic film projections combine to create a sensorial experience, raising questions about the fabric of our future communities. 
 
To accompany the tour, Das Hund release their debut album For Freedom, featuring ten original tracks of spoken word poetry and songs, accompanied by guitars, bass, keyboards, drones and looped drumbeats, remixed to hypnotic effect using analogue tape delays. 
 
For Freedom features extensive contributions from musicians Euan Hinshelwood, Bryan Michael Mills, Nicholas Pankhurst, Fancy Smith and Serafina Steer. Available on 12” vinyl LP and digital download. It is the first release on the new artist-run record label French Riviera Records. 
 
Das Hund For Freedom is supported using public funding by Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants.
