Berliner Festspiele 2012 – 2021. Formats Digital Culture Identity Politics Immersion Sustainability
Herausgegeben von Thomas Oberender
- Englischsprachige Ausgabe
A reader on the positioning of a pioneering German cultural institution. What has shaped the profile of its innovative programme? What new paths has this seventy-year-old institution, which unites all genres of contemporary art, explored? “Changes” features a collection of key texts and ideas by artists, intellectuals and curators who have rethought and redefined the way a cultural institution should work. Alongside these documents, five essays establish guidelines for describing the institution’s experimental and vastly innovative conceptual approach over the last ten years: the new meaning of format (as distinct from artistic work), the issue of sustainability in cultural institutions, identity politics, immersion and digital culture.
