To mark their 70th anniversary, the Berliner Festspiele will take over the International Congress Centre Berlin and open up the long-disused building for performance, art, music, films and installations. Many younger people and a significant number of Berliners have never seen this architectural icon designed by Ursulina Schüler-Witte and Ralf Schüler from the inside. In a time dominated by coronavirus the project that takes its title from a line in David Bowie’s song ‘Memory Of A Free Festival’ (1969) will offer light, space and transformation. Including works by Ed Atkins, Grace Ellen Barkey/Needcompany, Dara Birnbaum, Cao Fei, Barbara Hammer, Arthur Jafa, Ilya Khrzhanovsky, Scott King, John Carroll Kirby, Lawrence, Darragh McLoughlin & Andrea Salustri, Chloé Moglia, Jörg Müller, Ayaka Nakama, Nalan, Nazanin Noori, James Richards & Leslie Thornton, Rosaceae & Natascha P., Rachel Rose, Tino Sehgal, Markus Selg, Joulia Strauss, Alexis Taylor, Tegel Media, Unguarded, Alexander
