If there’s nothing happening, then people need to make things happen. That’s easier said than done, especially in 2021, but Berlin has a rich history of bringing things to life by making the best of what’s around, even under the most adverse circumstances. Without the various people organising concerts, club nights, interdisciplinary formats and discursive events, the sound of the city would be little more than static.
Starting in 2018, as part of the Pop-Kultur lokal programme, Anton Teichmann, Dominique Schweizer and Michael Aniser have presented events selected by an independent jury, open to the public and with free admission. This continues in 2021 with an expanded programme in which ROHPULS, Musikií Festivalas, Endlich, Mordorkore and La By’le Festa have shown the innovative spirit of local organisers.
Supported by the Senate Department for Culture and Europe of the State of Berlin with funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in the programme »Stärkung des Innovationspotentials in der Kultur II (INP II).
