Programme Overview 2024


Dear Readers and Friends,

In response to many requests and for better planning, we would like to give you a comprehensive overview of the fixed dates and the programme for 2024.

The 2024 program offers a wide range of artistic productions and works in various formats and genres that you can experience and attend in Germany, Poland, and Switzerland. These range from classical Persian music and visual art in solo and group exhibitions to reflections on memory structures and their individual and cultural significance.

Elshan Ghasimi performs as a soloist and a duo with Philipp Püschel or Hajo Wiesemann. The next concert will take place on 28 April as part of the Houbara Festival - Resonances Iran in Cologne's Stadtgarten.

For the summer, we invite you to Sergey Bratkov's solo exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Magdeburg on 9 June. Another highlight is the group exhibition NEUE ERINNERUNGEN by the EL ARBI BOUQDIB ARCHIVE on 17 August. Nine artists will dedicate themselves to the legacy of the mathematician, numerologist and poet El Arbi Bouqdib, who died in 2016. They will create new artworks: new memories of a hermetic and his complex cosmos. This will also open our new summer exhibition space in the historic Pumpwerk Berlin in Grünau.

We look forward to welcoming you to our events, engaging in dialogue with you, and celebrating culture together.

On behalf of the entire team

Circular 5 | 23 Premiere in Berlin “Nahfernost“

Circular 5 | 23 Premiere in Berlin “Nahfernost“

Dear reader,

The artistic encounter between the Persian setar master and composer Elshan Ghasimi and the flautist and shakuhachi player from Bremen Dieter Weische gave rise to the wish to deepen the dialogue between these two traditions. The desire became an idea, and they developed a new format: classical Persian and Japanese music merged into “Nahfernost” [Nearfareast].

Elshan Ghasimi has written new compositions for the concert on the 30th of September in the salon of the Schwartzsche Villa. They are based on classical literature-based pieces for the individual instruments. Together, she and Dieter Weische explore the relationship between rhythmic poetry and music and playfully show the similarities and differences between these ancient musical traditions.


Concert date
30th of September 2023
8 pm (admission from 7:30 pm, box office from 7 pm)
Tickets 18 € | red. 12 €
