Weserstrasse 166, 12045 Berlin

Topics Berlin is proud to host the offical Berlin Launch of Peaches’s new book „What Else is in the Teaches of Peaches“ From Akashic Books:

What Else Is In The Teaches Of Peaches presents a mesmerizing collection of Holger Talinski’s evocative and sometimes erotic photos of transgressive musical icon Peaches, on and off stage, with accompanying text by Peaches, Michael Stipe (R.E.M.), Yoko Ono, and the actress Ellen Page.

The event will begin at 17:00 with a Q&A between Peaches and filmmaker Yony Leyser( William S. Burroughs: A Man Within“ and the upcoming “ Desire Will Set You Free“) after which Peaches will be available to sign her new book.

Our Neighbors at Stella will be making us some great fingerfood, and all the bars around us will supply an endless stream of booze as we party through the night.

„this is balls like we haven’t seen since patti smith; she is die antwoord, kim gordon, nwa. she stands tall and she is fearless. that is my definition of a hero, heroine, progressive, icon— locked in, and ready to rumble.“ —Michael Stipe (excerpt from the book: What Else Is In The Teaches Of Peaches)

„Peaches has, without doubt, been one of the most important musicians in my life. She is more than a musician, though: she is a true artist and a prolific one at that. For a sixteen- year-old gay person, she offered something that I could not find elsewhere. A voice that said, F*ck shame, f*ck the male-dominated perspectives of sex, f*ck gender stereotypes, f*ck not embracing your desires, and f*ck not owning yourself.“ —Ellen Page (excerpt from the book: What Else Is In The Teaches Of Peaches)

„I don’t think a symphony could have matched what she did. She is an incredible artist. Seeing her do Cut Piece, and later, after attending her own performance art works, I have a clear vision of future women artists led by the creative courage of Peaches. Thank you, Peaches, for adding a long and exciting life to performance art.“ —Yoko Ono (excerpt from the book: What Else Is In The Teaches Of Peaches)
