Slurge is a band project founded exclusively for SUPERBOOTH19. The members are the ex-Ton Steine Scherben drummer Wolfgang Seidel, Carina Khorkhordina, Eric Bauer and Burkhard Beins.

The vitas of Slurge’s members reach back to the times of Kluster/Cluster and the Zodiac Free Arts Lab – founded by Beuys’ student Conrad Schnitzler. Another biographical landmark are the post-wall years when parts of Berlin became an area of unknown property and power relations, which made experiments possible, outside of commercial logics.
