Über Wasser / Sunday
Festival as part of DRAUSSENSTADT
As part of the Berlin-wide initiative “DRAUSSENSTADT”, the Department of Culture organizes the festival “Über Wasser” from September 17 to 19, 2021 at Kunstbrücke am Wildenbruch, around the Wildenbruchpark, on the newly designed Weigandufer. Over the course of three days, 13 artists and artist collectives will present a wide variety of actions and audiovisual performances. In addition, there will be various readings and live music.
The festival is about the bizarre place itself, where the toilet was still flushing about 20 years ago and which is now open for loud, colorful, diverse and experimental art. The actions refer to the place and are inspired by the multiple dimensions of water. What will happen at this location so close to the water, what do we know about water, and how are we all actually keeping our heads above water at the moment?
