When the hunger starts – Project Space Festival Berlin 2019

The fifth Project Space Festival Berlin focuses entirely on its informal forces and seeks unexpected alliances with the city’s protagonists and their contested terrains. Instead of a journey to the project spaces of the city, the festival visits their neighborhoods.

This year’s international edition of the Project Space Festival will take place under the title When The Hunger Starts from June 1-30, 2019 at public places in Berlin that change daily. With their open, translocal and often virtually transferred spatial practices, 29 project spaces were invited to have their events take place outside their own spaces or nearby environments. With this undertaking the participants relocate their program to the Berlin cityscape for a maximum of 24 hours.

Over 120 artists are participating in the 30 planned interventions in Berlin’s urban space. Their exhibitions, discussions, tours and performances were conceived by twenty Berlin project spaces and, for the first time, nine project spaces from Istanbul (Poşe), Klaipeda (si:said gallery), London (Ginny), Prague (Berlinskej Model), Moscow (TZVETNIK), Riga (427), Vilnius (Editorial), Vienna (GOMO) and Wroclaw (Cave).
