Jazzfest Berlin

Specials

New cooperation projects and innovative formats, performances and installations will allow Jazzfest Berlin to leave the concert hall behind. The festival’s Specials will populate the “Haus of Jazz”, inviting guests to exchange and contemplation. They will bring different art forms to the Festspielhaus and carry the festival outside its walls and into the city.

New cooperation projects and innovative formats, performances and installations will allow Jazzfest Berlin to leave the concert hall behind. The festival’s Specials will populate the “Haus of Jazz”, inviting guests to exchange and contemplation. They will bring different art forms to the Festspielhaus and carry the festival outside its walls and into the city. Two works have emerged from a cooperation project with the Cologne Academy for Media Arts: Lia Sáile’s installation “Trans Lucent” will let the Festspielhaus shine with a new light from within, while Charlotte Triebus and her performance “Lunatic Cloud Ten” will find the way out of the building. In addition, the house will take on a new shape through the projection of visuals and moving images by Juno Meinecke and others on the glass facade. For the performance “Future- Leaks: Trading Point for Future Visions”, people with a common refugee-background will invite us to join them in asking questions to the future as part of Berlin Mondiale. A “Mash Machine” and a workshop from the “Parallel Worlds”-series on Saturday will give young festival guests an opportunity to use digital consoles to get an insight into the principles of musical improvisation and to try them out via app at the interactive family concert by Tin Men and the Telephone.

Sunday morning will be a time for different realms of experience: Special guided tours through a current exhibition of Arthur Jafa at the Julia Stoschek Collection Berlin will build a bridge to the work of this filmmaker and artist. For the “Kiezkonzerte”, Jazzfest Berlin is taking musical occupation of a living room, a hair salon and a gallery, only to follow this by bringing peace and quiet to the Festspielhaus for the “Silence Meal”, confronting culinary delights with an audio experience with a difference.
