We are continuously surrounded by violence, whether it is in our everyday lives or in our virtual spaces. Video games transform and stylise violence or even use it as a means for escape. What is the significance of duration, of the passing of time in this respect? “Parallel Worlds 4” is linked with specific events of MaerzMusik – Festival for Time Issues and explores the connections between time and temporalities in all aspects of the digital media.

“Parallel Worlds” is a programme by young people and for young people at Berliner Festspiele, which focuses on the world of the digital media. With a variety of formats, it will engage with the festivals MaerzMusik, Musikfest and Jazzfest in 2018 – each time in parallel to the contexts and periods of the respective events. Workshops and discursive formats will be developed with a peer group of young adults who will contribute their own topics and focal points for the target group (16+). The particular interest lies in a close cooperation with Berliner Festspiele’s existing programme lines.
