  • Our Mission Statement

    48 Stunden Neukölln is a forum for projects in all conceivable artistic disciplines found in the art scene in Berlin. The festival both presents and supports art, thereby contributing to  discussions of ideas effecting society at large while also reflecting said society. All segments of the local population get involved, regardless of age, ethnic background or  social standing. Art here is something more than what's on view in galleries and museums during 48 Stunden. The festival brings not only a variety of disciplines, but also people together, as they view art which relays important ideas. This manifests itself in discursive, participatory and interdisciplinary projects, which are a festival priority. At the same though, there is also a focus on art for art's sake – including the conditions under which art is made, techniques used as well as the social function that art can serve. The festival endeavours to explore all potential forms of contemporary artistic expression, including ways of dealing with political issues in the arts.

  • Our Thematic Focus

    "Boom" - A pointy red and yellow speech bubble in comics: an explosion, a powerful outburst and a sign of abrupt change. Open in all directions – a loud bang, but also a big breakthrough. A bass tone that drives the music, a formal visualization with party poppers. And of course, the critical examination of financial upturns and the “limits to growth” when taking into account both economic and ecological factors. This field defines the thematic focus of 48 hours Neukölln 2020.

  • NEW: Festival of Young Arts

    48 Stunden Neukölln also includes a Festival of Young Arts. Children, young people and families can marvel at art projects including not just paintings, but sculptures, theatre plays and films made either by young people or artists. Many of the activities taking place in this framework are also participatory, such as workshops and adventurous excursions. 48 Stunden Neukölln invites all institutions, youthclubs and artists to show the variety of artistic work with young people.
