During Museumnacht Den Haag our door was open for a nightly exhibition visit and a musical performance by Eurowitch. He played the song made for Carmen Roca Igual’s newest film ‘Clean Talk’, on view in her exhibition ‘Tan lines from a Spiritual Retweet’ at 1646.
In the film, a bunch of Spanish women are being filmed as a favour to their cousin, who directs the scenes. The cousin makes them clean and gossip for hours while orchestrating a fictional piece that often breaks the fourth wall as the women break character to talk to and disagree with their cousin. ‘Clean Talk‘ mixes the past with the future, retelling old stories from a contemporary point of view. In his performance during Museumnacht, Eurowitch showed us his auto-tune sounds that contrast to the traditional Spanish tonality, taking us through a spectrum of sounds found within Latin music.
Eurowitch is an artist, DJ and singer-songwriter, who, in his musical work, experiments with reggaeton, dancehall, trap, baile funk and sweaty global club beats. Being a Queer artist working with Latin urban rhythms, Eurowitch doesn’t always fit the mold. The backbone of his work is thus based on the representation of LGBTQ+ people in the urban music scene.
