Due to the weather, the event will be moved to Kindl—Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst.
On this date, we’ll get to know artists from this year’s Berlin Art Week programme better and learn about the role that art plays in their lives. Moderated by the performance collective Gob Squad, we will obtain personal portraits as close ups of the guests, from their favourite food to dream images. The audience shouldn’t expect a dry interview, but a playful approach.
For 25 years now, the Gob Squad collective has worked between the realms of theatre, art, and the media with its productions and live performance, always in search of beauty in the banal. Gob Squad was founded in Nottingham, England by students at Nottingham Trent University and graduates of Universität Gießen’s programme in theatre studies. Berlin has been their artistic centre and production location since 1999.
