Facebook event

Auch wenn es flucht bedeutet
It all began on one night at a café in Friedrichshain. An ordinary conversation about everyday life lead to the shared understanding, that it's not bearable anymore. All this hustling, the compulsion, the restlessness.

STEP BY STEP, IT GOES ON AND ON, FOR YOU AND FOR ME, FOR YOU AND FOR ME. THIS IS YOUR PATH, AND I'LL WALK YOU A LITTLE WAYS. IN AND OUT ALL THE TIME, AND THEY SAY, IT'S SO NICE, GO MAKE SOMETHING OF IT! BUT WHAT TO MAKE OF THIS? WHEN CONSCIOUSNESS IS 100% SUSPENDED, SECRET TRANSFERS SEEM TO BE WORTH THEIR WEIGHT IN GOLD. BUT TODAY I ASK, WHAT'S THE POINT AND WHAT'S THE OBJECTIVE. MAYBE JUST GOING AWAY FROM HERE AND DOING IT FAST. DOING IT TO BE ABLE TO MAKE IT AND TO BUILD A GOOD LIFE, AS GOOD AS POSSIBLE. SOMEWHERE, WHERE THAT'S AN OPTION AND WHERE ONE CAN GET RID OF ALL THESE HUMAN MACHINES. JUST DOING IT TO BE ABLE TO MAKE IT AND TO BUILD A GOOD LIFE, AS GOOD AS POSSIBLE. EVEN IF IT MEANS TAKING FLIGHT AUCH WENN ES FLUCHT BEDEUTET, IT'S STILL POSSIBLE THAT IT'S RIGHT. LIVING LIFE!? HOW DOES THAT WORK ANYWAY? THE POINT IS TO LIVE IT. (YAGE)

And from that arose the idea to launch an art festival, which views flight as a necessary action. The subsequent text is the result of our thoughts. It's an interpretation, which is meant to serve the artists and speakers as an inspiration for creating their contributions to the fest in november.


ACCELERATED IRRELEVANCE AS EXPRESSION OF A COMPULSIVE SOCIETY. UNDER THE COMPULSION OF USABILITY AND SPELLBOUND BY INDIVIDUALITY. QUANTITY PULLS QUALITY TO THE GROUND AND SCREAMS FOR ORIGINALITY AND INNOVATION. AS A RESULT THERE IS A VARIATION OF VERSIONS AND THE EXPERIENCE OF A RETROPROJECTION. JOY IS IN HIDING. BEAUTY HAS CEASED TO BE AN END IN ITSELF. AND NARCISSISM BLOSSOMS IN MOLDY COLORS. A SELF-DECEPTION WHICH MAKES US FORGET THAT OUR APPEARANCE IN THIS LIFE IS JUST A TRAGIC COMEDY. TAKING FLIGHT AS A NECESSITY AND THE PLEASURE OF A HOPELESS ESCAPE. JUST FOR ONE NIGHT. FOR ONE NIGHT, WE WANT TO NIBBLE ON THE BEAUTY OF THINGS AND WE WANT TO EAT OUR FILL OF FEELING UNCONSTRAINED.

Because the german word Flucht has multiple meanings – including taking refuge – we want to point out, that the idea of our fest is not related to the current situation of refugees in europe. When we speak about taking flight or escaping, we always mean escaping society's conditions, which is associated with critical opposition as well as the feeling of being at the mercy of circumstances. So although it might be partly possible to use the same terminology to describe the situation of the refugees, we want to make clear, that Flucht has many different forms and dimensions, which are not interchangeable and have to be approached separately, taking different levels of quality and necessity into account.

In addition we want to mention that our festival will not be a space for acts and expressions of racism, sexism, antisemitism, antiziganism and nationalism.
