Call for Participation: Berliner Festspiele’s Living Archive

Berliner Festspiele 70: We invite you to tell your story

In March 2021, we will look back at 70 years of Berliner Festspiele at Gropius Bau, where one of our endeavours will be a ‘living archive space’, created from your stories and memorabilia.

We are looking for you: visitors of our events and festivals who are willing to share your experiences or memories with us and, perhaps, with the audience at Gropius Bau. These memories could either refer to current festivals like MaerzMusik – Festival for Time Issues, Musikfest Berlin, Theatertreffen or Jazzfest Berlin or concern festivals and programme series that no longer exist, such as Metamusik-Festival, spielzeit’europa or Horizonte – Festival of World Cultures.

If you have an item (a record, programme brochure, image, seat pad, decades-old ticket etc.) that brings back memories of a particular performance, we would also love to hear from you. We would be delighted to include your stories and memorabilia temporarily in our ‘living archive’.
