The 37th edition of transmediale with the theme "You're doing awesome sweetie" questions the appeal of useless politics that arise from cycles of consumption and distraction. Two exhibitions on this topic will run for two months until 14 April at Künstlerhaus Bethanien and Silent Green. The transmediale festival (at Silent Green and Haus der Kulturen der Welt) will be complemented for the first time by a club night at Berghain.

Long Night of Museums

24th August 2024

Acrobatics under domes, courtly dance in the palace, cocktails among dinosaurs - experience museums in a different way. The world-famous museums on Museum Island will be there, as well as art galleries and technology museums, planetariums and palaces. The Long Night of Museums is a Berlin invention. It was held here for the first time in 1997. In 2023, Berlin's most cultural night set a visitor record with 50,000 guests.

The largest and most diverse interreligious event in Germany has been taking place since 2012. Up to 100 religious communities and initiatives open their synagogues, churches, mosques, temples and community centres (mostly in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and Mitte), invite people to talks, concerts, services, devotions and lectures and thus promote social dialogue.

Day of the open monument in Berlin

9th September 2024

This year's motto is "True Signs. Contemporary witnesses of history". Unique buildings are often remembered as recognisable landmarks. Buildings such as the Brandenburg Gate create identification with their surroundings and attract tourists. But every monument is "true" as an authentic testimony to a time. But what exactly does "true" mean and what "signs" does a monument set?

Berlin Art Week

Since 2012, Berlin's contemporary art scene has been showcasing what makes the city of art what it is: a source where art is created, a laboratory for themes and a place for new impulses and many discoveries. Galleries from all over the world present young art at the POSITIONS Berlin Art Fair, and high-calibre exhibitions open in Berlin's museums, project spaces and exhibition venues.
