Director Bernd Scherer on the program July/August:
Major political challenges as a soundscape: The eleventh edition of the annual Wassermusik festival is putting the Brexit on the program. Under the motto Goodbye UK – and Thank You for the Music, over four summer weekends we present “Britishness” in polyphonic form. Shortly before the closing of our Neolithic Childhood exhibition, HKW is offering curator-guided tours, film screenings, and Neolithic Nights for personal access to the themes of the exhibition, the crises of then and today. The common thread running through all of these programs is inquisitive research using the means of science and culture to bring about new forms of knowledge production, new forms of social participation, and subjective means of expression.
