Festival Über Lebenskunst
Perspectives for sustainable living
17 to 21 August 2011 at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and in the city of Berlin. 101 hours of conferences, workshops, installations, performances, concerts, films, excursions, discussions and readings. For the ÜBER LEBENSKUNST Festival, artists, scientists and activists turned the Haus der Kulturen der Welt into a place where visitors of all ages could try out the sustainable "art of living" around the clock. For four summer days and nights, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt showcased itself as well as the need to structure our lives differently, providing a space for experimentation in contemporary art and acting as a kind of "laboratory" for exploring new habits. About 10,000 visitors attended and participated.
