MaerzMusik - Festival of Contemporary Issues

  • Highlights
The Berlin Festival for Contemporary Issues "MaerzMusik" will take place from March 17 to 26, 2023. MaerzMusik sees itself as a place for the exchange of artistic knowledge through new encounters and shared experiences.

Developed from the multimodality of listening, contemporary music and sound, the festival opens up a space where life, art and theory can coexist and co-exist with concerts, performances, installations, music theater, exhibition and discourse formats.

The program of MaerzMusik 2023 has been developed by artistic director Kamila Metwaly and her team with composer and conductor Enno Poppe as guest curator.
