Vorspiel Opening 2022


17:00 –
silent green

Through live performances, screenings, installations, and many other artistic interventions, this opening event gives a small taste of what to expect for the Vorspiel 2022 program. Taking place at silent green in Wedding for the first time, the opening night will play out over Kuppelhalle, Betonhalle, transmediale studio, one of the Ateliers, and silent green’s beautiful garden. As a prelude to CTM and transmediale festivals, Vorspiel regroups initiatives, collectives, and venues into a city-wide event series: two weeks of online and in-person exhibitions, performances, interventions, and artist talks that explore artistic intersections of digital culture and society.

The program showcases some of this year’s participating venues. Doors open: 16:30, programme starts 17:00

Free event – we will ask for 1€ Vorspiel support at the door and collect donations for Plus1–refugees welcome.

The event will be held in accordance with the 2G+ regulation (recovered/vaccinated + negative test result, not older than 24 hours) and FFP2 masks (subject to change to comply with current Senate regulations).

A test center is around the corner: Schnelltest Berlin Lindower Str. 18 13347 Berlin-Wedding

As the venue's spaces have a limited capacity, access cannot always be guaranteed. We suggest you arrive on time to avoid disappointment and be prepared to spend some time outdoors enjoying a hot drink by the bar.
