Whoever visits the cultural brewery from August 24th to 26th, a full program awaits. As part of this year's international pop culture festival, over a hundred events take place, including over 80 concerts and DJ sets. In addition, several readings, discussions, films and commissioned works, i.e. order work, are planned for the festival. According to the organizer, both accessibility and translation in sign language for more inclusion of spectators as well as diversity in the selection of artists should be in place.
"Barrieren Bye bye-Hello justice", the Sisterqueens, a feminist rap project group, sang in the so-called species of species to initiate the press conference on August 10, in which the program was presented in the cultural brewery. A central component of the concept of festival manager Katja Lucker and her three-member program team (Yeşim Duman, Christian Morin and Pamela Owusu-Brenyah) is international exchange: As part of tandem residences Berlin brought so that you can work together on shows for the festival. This is supposed to create a variety of performances and discourses: “We want to show the view of the artists. It's about people, less about the industry, ”said Katja Lucker. The main topics are as colorful as the coral reefs that adorn the background of the posters and flyers of the festival.
The most overrated movies ever
Have you ever watched a movie that's revered by critics and praised by your pals, only to realize that you don't understand all the fuss? Just because something is highly acclaimed doesn't mean it's not overrated. Here's our list of popular and profitable movies that don't live up to the hype.
“Why the motif of the corals? Because this landscape fits pop culture very well: it is a protective, various, colorful living space, ”said Christian Morin, one of the festival's program manager. Like the entire cultural industry, Corona has severely restricted the pop culture festival in the past two years. "We had a lot of great things in the 2020 program, which we unfortunately couldn't bring on stage," said Morin. Some work has now been included again. Morin describes the pop culture as a garden: "An organism where you plant something again, on the other hand, something."
topics that are currently flowering ranges from criticism of capitalism to African diaspora to social media, youth culture and climate - this and More is processed in different formats. In the pop culture discourse program with talks, films and readings, actors themselves have their say. According to Katja Lucker, the exchange with the audience is also important: spectators should be involved proactively and consideration should be taken into account. As a compensation for loud, energetic festival driving, the “Çaystube” deceleration location was set up in the middle of the cultural brewery, where festival goers can take a breather. For the first time, the festival also offers a "incluthel", a barrier-free online media library.
on, in and on the water: that's why Berlin's waters are simply beautiful - the best tips!
Dear readers, given the oppressive prophecies around the water shortage in Berlin and Brandenburg, I would now like to share my beautiful impressions of Berlin on the water with them. It starts with the dog in the morning: We two land on the walk along the Spree on most days. And again and again I can look forward to this calm with drizzle or porridge showers, the sluggish river increases many times over.
Nevertheless, there is still a lot to do with inclusion. “Unfortunately, not every event in sign language is translated on site, we simply lack the financial means. But that is our goal in the long run, ”says Katja Lucker. Nevertheless, sign language will come to the stage for everyone: In addition to artists such as Grammy Award winners Goldlink or the "German Lana Del Rey" Amilli, sign poet Mila Hermert will also be seen on the stage with her poem performance "snout".
Queere artists such as musicians Tama Gucci from New York will also give concerts and have their say. There will be an insight into a wide variety of topics in the talks, readings and film screenings: Protagonists and authors of the television series "Druck", for example, talk about generation Z in the talk "I'll Be Fine", and refugee musicians will tell from their perspective how It feels that it can no longer be artistically active in the home country.
