The excellent Pop-Kultur returns this year with another superb programme – this years highlighs include Deerhoof, Lali Puna, Okzharp & Manthe Ribane, Station 17 and many more.
»Pop-Kultur« is an international festival, held from August 21 to 23 in 2019 at the Kulturbrauerei in Berlin. The first edition happened at the Berghain in 2015, the second one in the district of Neukölln in 2016. »Pop-Kultur« is based on three elemental foundations: 1. Live (Music, Talks, Readings, Exhibitions and films) 2. »Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs« 3. Networking.
Pop-Kultur gives artists from Berlin and the entire world the opportunity to create new art and showcase it as a world premiere on stage. The focus lies on visionary extentions within the various fields of production work with a special weight on the performance approach. The festival allows an intense preparation and connects local and international partners in the spirit of collaboration. »Pop-Kultur« emphasizes internationality and sexual diversity. »Pop-Kultur« furthermore presents special music, DJ sets and labels which haven’t been showcased in Berlin in that form before.
»Pop-Kultur« creates a discursive space for pop culture and especially pop music, allowing reflection, contextualization and celebration. We stand for interdisciplinary exchange which also includes academic discourse. Artists are specifically encouraged to contribute to the festival not just in the form of a performance but also via a public talk or a workshop with young talents.
