Munich’s city planning councilor Elisabeth Merk, the artist Gabi Blum and the sociologist Martina Löw discuss in a conversation with the dramaturge and sociologist Martin Valdés-Stauber thrusts of change in public space. How can we re-appropriate public space, after the pandemic and its restrictions?
After expert impulses, the audience and the experts will continue the conversation in small groups. Finally, the panel will bring together the insights of the evening.

What is the situation in Bosnia and in East-West Europe? Who is responsible for their inhumane situation? What are the conditions for asylum seekers and people on the run? Is there a strategy and how can we help those in need? Where does the aid money go and who disposes of it?
24.4. and 25.4.: Working in international constellations
Digital program and thematic focus
How do we want to collaborate artistically globally? What does it take to make these international working practices possible? How can we connect locally and still participate in an international exchange? Together with the Goethe-Institut, the Münchner Kammerspiele will discuss working practices and structures for the global artistic collaboration of the future in a digital theme weekend with artists* and a professional audience.
In the public evening program, starting at 5 p.m., we will open our discussions in two digital panel discussions, present our artistic sisterhoods with Warsaw and Kyiv, and show our current international productions The Digital Assembly / Die Versammlung and „Wir Schwarzen müssen zusammenhalten“ – Eine Erwiderung [“We Blacks have to stick together – A response] with English subtitles.
Fifteen theatres are founding the theaternetzwerk.digital.
“The digital transformation of society is leading to a cultural change and affects almost all areas of life. Our everyday life as well as our working world. How and what we work, how we communicate, interact and collaborate with each other. In a digitally networked global society, theatres in particular can contribute as communicative places of assembly and exchange to maintaining a culture of cooperation, empathy and global solidarity. The pluralisation of society has a direct impact on the development of addresses to potential audiences and the communication of artistic activity,” says Barbara Mundel, welcoming the initiative.
What is the City? Four city residencies in urban space from May 2021
Over the next year and a half, we will be offering four three-week research residencies to independent artists and groups to experiment with us at the intersection of theatre and city.
We congratulate the four selected artists and groups and looking forward to accompanying them in the realisation of their projects from May 2021 on: Çağlar Yiğitoğulları: 10 days rolling on the floor in the urban space of Munich; Gabi Blum, Patrick Gruban, Emanuel Mooner and Matthias Stadler: What is the City? Of urban scenes, spatial politics and subversive strategies; Louis Panizza, Jacqueline Reddington and Marie Schleef: To Give Away; Lena Grossmann: Public Bodies – A Mimetic Research
