With a 4 day programme packed full of installations, workshops, performances, video screenings, live music concerts, poetry readings, art exhibitions and more besides, the third edition of the Berlin Soup festival this year at West Germany right in the heart of Kotti, is sure to live up to its name as an international happening.
The international contemporary arts & performance festival Berlin Soup is an art happening and a social-artistic experiment that takes place in different countries each year. Berlin Soup @ WestGermany is an inspiring, aware, fun, creative and loving feast of art.
Bringing together around 50 international artists and performers and a wide span of genres, the goal of Berlin Soup is to share art, make art and to push the borders of what art is and can do on a formal, creative, cultural and social level. This happens over four days, during which each day zooms in on video & poetry, performance art, music or artist talk & film screening.
For this purpose, Berlin Soup takes place in and is curated in corporation with one of Berlin’s most popular, cutting edge and socially aware art spaces WestGermany, located directly on Kreuzbergs’s most hectic, dynamic and challenged places, Kottbussertor. Using both the indoor space of WestGermany as well as its outdoor surroundings, events like a large performance in corporation with 10 vendors of the homeless magazine Strassenfeger under the high line, concerts, dance pieces and a comprehensive exhibition of visual arts actuate the interaction between art and world, artist and audience.
With people as artistically and internationally diverse as film director Lars Movin (dk), sound artist Martin Lau (de), performer and musician Lazara Rosell (cu/be), dancer and performer Oren Lazowski (il), visual artist Allan Bestle (dk), composer, musician and sound artist Adachi Tomomi (jp) and aerobatic performance artist Michiel Tange van Leeuwen (nl), Berlin Soup @ WestGermany draws a topography of contemporary international art that must be experienced
