Ed Atkins: “Death Mask 5” (2019)

“Death Mask 5” (2019) is a specially compiled mix of Ed Atkins' works from the past decade. The British artist, whose exhibition “Old Food” was shown at Gropius Bau from September 2017 to January 2018, plumbs the corporeal depths of digital moving imagery in his video works. His unique visual language, both melancholic and absurd, confronts the viewer with intimate, arcane visions that seem caught in a purgatory of afterwards.

Our Stage and Exhibition Spaces

Gropius Bau has reopened on 11 May, please find information on your visit here.

The doors at Haus der Berliner Festspiele will remain closed: Performance and event operations have been cancelled until 31 May and after this date, the building will be refurbished until February 2022. During the construction work, some of our festivals and events will take place at alternative venues and/or online.

We will keep you updated in our newsletter, via our social media channels and, of course, on our website. Please continue to check in with us or get the information per e-mail.

But that does not mean that we will not make sure you are amply provided with culture. We are happy to present our online programme “Berliner Festspiele on Demand”, which you can enjoy at home and free of charge.
