POP-KULTUR 2017

»Pop-Kultur« is an international festival, held from August 23 to 25 in 2017 at the Kulturbrauerei in Berlin. The first edition happened at the Berghain in 2015, the second one in the district of Neukölln in 2016.

»Pop-Kultur« is based on three elemental foundations: 1. Live (Music, Talks, Readings, Exhibitions and films) 2. »Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs« 3. Networking. 

This years program includes myriad of original commissioned works, and a fabulous mix of international and local artists taking over stages to perform and present their works. We at BCR are most anticipating performances from Abra, Acid Arab & Little Simz while we cannot hide bias in being truly excited about a number of our friends and contributors being involved and working on special shows including:

No Sex Club' Loke Rahbek collaborating with Crude Foyer Julia Lans Nowak on a theather-radio play hybrid entitled 'Translator'

Do Not Go Gentle Anika paired up with Raoul Sanders to try to communicate with an AI during 'The Writing Robot' performance 

Heatsick also known as Steven Warwick will be expanding his Nadir project into 'The Mezzanine' with a number of contributors - also premiering at Pop Kultur! 

We are also really looking forward to learning some history through the 'Too Much Future' commisioned works and film screenings- taking us through the history of punk and DIY in the GDR

BCR and Pop-Kultur are working together on a series of radio shows where the festival curators talk with artists about the program and commissioned works, first of the shows is archived below: 

During the festival BCR will be broadcasting live from a pop-up radio booth installed in the Club 23, in the main festival area. The special radio transmission will see BCR try to get to the bottom of festival's main theme- the meaning of Pop Kultur with guests including Throwing Shade, How To Dress Well, Anika, Loke Rahbek & Julia Nowak, Thomas Sonderby Jepsen of Roskilde Festival playing their favorite pop songs and discussing the meaning and importance of pop culture in their life and work. The radio broadcasts will be open to the public! More infos here: http://www.pop-kultur.berlin/en/modules/kollektiv-berlin-community-radio/
