Narrating Hydrosocial Territories

Over the past months, artists, scientists and residents have explored a tiny area nestled between canals, boats and trees in the middle of the Spreewald. Their research culminated in a two day festival of arts and sciences and featured multimedia installations, theatre performances and audio walks.

Now, all these works, as well as the stories, ideas and impressions will be transported to Berlin- with the very element that connects the Spreewald with the capital – the river Spree…. But what does it mean to bring these impressions and representations from one place to another? Whose stories are being heard and whose are being lost? Which possibilities exist beyond anthropocentric-storytelling to include more-than human actors?

Join us to continue exploring these questions, the river and all it’s dimensions. It will be an evening of campfire discussions, artistic interventions, scientific inputs and Glühwein.
