Reeperbahn Festival Socials

Dear media representatives, dear colleagues,
apart from exciting live and conference contents, the Reeperbahn Festival provides year for year a stunning art programme for visitors. The most obvious among the programme items are those which take place in public spaces. These have been confirmed to a great extent – further contents, including the programme for film and literature will, of course, follow.

The art programme in public spaces is taking shape: Public Space Design and Caravan Square at Spielbudenplatz, Gallery Hopping in Neustadt, Ladyflash photo exhibition and a show by Barner 16 are promising apart from musical, also extremely exciting moments in matters of visual art.

When a festival is spread over an entire city district, how can it be possible, by means of artistic elements, to create a festival centre - and how can what happens in the clubs be transmitted via installations to a public space? For this task, Spielbudenplatz was chosen symbolically for city and citizens as the heart of the Reeperbahn Festival. This public, urban space in the middle of the Reeperbahn will be used to present the major part of the public art programme – from the forecourt of the Mojo Club over the area under the site fences of the previous Esso houses up to Taubenstrasse, Spielbunplatz will become a multisensory experience in matters of art.
Caravan Square: In five caravans, which will be converted into a mobile gallery and performance space, students of the HfBK and HAW will devote themselves with videos, sculptures, paintings, installations and performances to the question of the „Simple Life“ and what one really needs in order to live. 
Urban Design for Spaces and Places is created by the Berlin collective L.U.C.K. on the forecourt of the Mojo Club and in Taubenstrasse with the modular installation of tribunes and stages. These urban design elements provide not only seating for the evening Open Air Cinema in Taubenstrasse, but invite one in the daytime to linger around or even give spontaneous performances – and symbolically transport the activities within the clubs into the open space.
The Barner 16 team presents in the Pauli station its motley spectacle „Von den Amöben zum Bösen“ (from the amoebic to evil) which, with music from Station 17 und Guest appearances from Jacques Palminger and Peter Licht, addresses the question of what are the important things of life, for example fashion trends, sex positions or even chewing gum. A scientific brain-teaser which transverses the history of the world!  
On Thursday 22.09.2016 at 4 p.m. the renowned Hamburg music photographer Katja Ruge will open her exhibition „Ladyflash – Women in Music“ in the Galerie Kulturreich in Neustadt. This work exhibition of almost 25 years of music photography is dedicated to a generation of self-confident female protagonists of music events and connects fascinating photographic motifs with the experiences Ruge has had with female artists in the setting during her work. By this means, the observer gets a closer feeling for the world of tours, studio sessions and interviews. 
Nowhere else in the Hanseatic town is the concentration of exciting galleries greater than in Neustadt. Reason enough to join the guided tours of Young Friends of the Art Gallery, to know you can get away from the Reeperbahn, do some Gallery Hopping with a tasteful guide at your side to take you through the labyrinth of diversity and quality
