At 114.5 metres above zero, the Ahrensfeld mountains, Berlin’s fourth highest elevation, geographically and symbolically mark a significant location in Berlin-Marzahn.
The interdisciplinary festival ‘114 über Marzahn’ places the Ahrensfeld mountains at the centre of a multifaceted programme: through nature, architecture and star tours, performances and interventions, concerts and a walk-in installation, we look at the different times and layers, climb the mountains and observe the sky above Marzahn.
The festival program will include (in order): Alexander Häckel (Geoscientific walk), Karoline Funk & Stephan Wilke “Wunkraut vergeht nicht – complex applications of wild plants” (Botanical hike), Erik Göngrich “SUBBOTNIK 2019” (guided tour & lecture performance), Robert Barbarino “Der Marzahner Norden: Um-, Auf- und Abbruch” (Bike tour — Please bring your own bike!), Band Marzahn (song hike & performance), Christian Geike “Muhurta Marzahn” (Astrological Tracing), Oleg Peters “40 Jahre Marzahn von oben (40 years of Marzahn from above)” (guided tour), Katrinem “Path of Awareness_vonAnachB” (Soundwalk & Performance), Band Marzahn (concert), Pastor Leumund & Mittekill (Sermon on the Mount / concert), Janek Sprachta (concert).
114 über Marzahn was created on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Marzahn-Hellersdorf in cooperation with the Standortmarketing project, the district’s economic development agency. The festival is supported by funds from the Federal Government and the State of Berlin within the framework of the Gemeinschaftsaufgabe (GRW) “Improvement of the Regional Economic Structure”, and by Quartiermeister.
