YOU ARE HERE AKA THE MAZE is a performance festival in a sculptural maze installation created by Trouble, produced by Eine Welt Aus Hack, Uman Unger, Westgermany, Kunts ThatCunst.
The YOU ARE HERE festival – a giant installation that alters a space in it’s architecture by chopping it up, diverting, chanelling, corridoring, barricading it like a labyrinth.
It is a labyrinth! Built into Westgermany, weird materials, transparent and nontransparent. Inside tons of stuff like art, performance, most of all music – curated by artists and promoters based in Berlin.
An idea created by the New York artist group TROUBLE who do the fest there every other year. The program ranges from concerts fragmented by the nature of the sculpture it’s taking place in to site specific performances and sound installations, exhibitions and performances, and even a benefit event.
Performing and curating artists are, among others: Diamond Terrifier, Jim Avignon, Aidan Baker, Jochen Arbeit, Dirty Beaches, Eagle Boston, Sferics, Justine Electra and many more.
