Since its inception in 1999 48 Stunden Neukölln has become not only the biggest independent arts festival in Berlin but also a best practises example of how to do this kind of thing.
For those forty-eight hours Neukoelln becomes one big art happening, with art presented not only in conventional spaces like galleries and ateliers but also in new, weird and unexpected spots throughout the neighbourhood, “where artworks can be discovered, made accessible and given new uses.”
Among the many highlights is the bunch of open air concerts taking place around the Neuköllner Schifffahrtskanal, where the Spreeprinzessin boat is playing host to a number of brilliant acts including the wonderful Toni Kater.
Basically there’s way too much going on for me to tell you about here. Go, get off your heads, wander Neukoelln for two days, and nurse your hangovers next week. Good luck!
