We did not know exactly how the festival would eventually take place. So the joy was great when everyone realized that more normality was possible. Despite the heat, there was a lightness in the streets of Neukölln, and it showed you clearly how important art is for all of us, especially in difficult times.
Thanks to all who were there on this June weekend!
After the festival is before the festival and, as always, everything begins with the search for a festival theme. We are looking forward to ideas, thoughts and visions for 48 HOURS OF NEW COLOGNE 2022. Feel free to send your theme suggestions to: email@example.com. In a meeting with local initiatives, artists and galleries, the proposals and submissions will be discussed. The creator of the chosen theme will be published by name, should a theme be adopted directly. We are already very excited and looking forward to the festival 2022!

Declaration of the many
Art creates a space to change the world. As activists of the cultural landscape in Germany, we are not above things, but on a ground from which the greatest state crimes in human history were committed. In this country, art was once defamed as degenerate and culture was abused for propaganda purposes all over the country. Millions of people were murdered or went into exile, among them many artists.
