urban arts festival, workshop
3 – 10 October 2014
Berlin holds a reputation of a city where everything is possible, where its own scars and voids become a playground for creativity and experimentation for everything from the arts to politics and from architecture to philosophy; a carte blanche of unlimited possibilities.
What are the potentialities of this new Berlin and what are the roles and the rules in its new urban play? What future visions are replacing the ideologies of the past? Have its inhabitants found the freedom they were looking for or is an idealised representation disguising much more complex and sometimes conflicting urban realities?
Berlin Unlimited was the first trans-disciplinary festival gathering arts, architecture and urban discourses to establish a picture of the contemporary Berlin 25 years after the fall of the wall.
The 7 days festival settled in the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik (ZK/U) in October 2014. A diversified and thrilling programme of workshops, exhibitions, lectures, conferences, film screenings, creative caterings, performances, guided tours and urban parties took place with numbered artists and special guests, inviting all Berlin enthusiasts to discover a complete narrative of the city based on the contemporary artistic production in context.
Berlin Unlimited aimed to bring together an interdisciplinary collection of work in the arts and creative media, architecture and urban design, theory and research, that reveal, reflect on, challenge, and reform, the limits and the limitations of the city.
