Program in Berlin in brief

Many formats and actors

The complexity of Modernism , expressed in a multitude of approaches, forms and ambivalences, is mirrored by an equally broad spectrum of interpretations and formats. This is matched by the fact that the Berlin program is put together by 25 partners of the most diverse types and sizes. This grassroots character of the Berlin program guarantees a multifaceted mediation and is suitable as a bracket to address currently relevant issues of urban development, diversity, and the social and political participation of civil society.
