Berlin Atonal has unveiled the lineups for its Metabolic Rift events programme.

Caterina Barbieri is also scheduled to bring her new Light-Years concept to the Kraftwerk building, with the artist performing live alongside Bendik Giske, Nkisi and Caner Teker on October 21. The full event series will take place across six dates, between September 26 and October 30.

The exhibition and tour of the building is currently open for pre-booked visits between September 25 and October 30.
