Summer will be different in Berlin this year. Community and gathering are being reorganized during the pandemic. The outdoors is taking on new importance. In this exceptional time, the arts are also leaving interior spaces and rediscovering the outdoors. For the 20 Sunsets festival, HKW invites the city to its rooftop terrace at dusk. On six weekends there will be concert sets, films, readings, and talks by and with Berlin’s international artists and cultural professionals.

Come together – outdoors and with a little distancing!
