Dear artists, participants and friends of Ortstermin,
In the spirit of the festival theme, we cordially invite you to this year's Ortstermin 23 art festival!
On 01.09.2023 at 18:00 the Kunstverein Tiergarten will open the Moabit art festival Ortstermin 23 with the theme "GAST/SPIELE" in front of the Galerie Nord in Turmstraße 75 and invites you to engage with current interdisciplinary art and culture on the weekend from 01 to 03 September.
With their projects, the participants of the festival explore the diverse and sometimes contradictory aspects of hosting. Moabit becomes a field of experimentation for testing, breaking and re-establishing rules of gathering, for discovering new places and ideas and creating new friendships between hosts and guests. This weekend the whole district will become a place of encounters, of receiving and sharing.
Moabit is a district of many facets, and equally varied is the programme that can be explored in many different ways. Once again this year, artists and creatives will open the doors of their studios and give you an insight into their working methods.
Project spaces, cultural institutions, galleries, cafés and bars will present curated exhibitions and or-ganise events and workshops. In addition, a variety of activities in public spaces throughout the district invite passers-by to linger and participate. In the spirit of hos-pitality, participants will give us access to their flats under the title »mon habite«.
As part of the project »Ecke« (corners), places of hospitality will become central nodes of the festival from which you can start your festival visit or guided tour. Artists will visit pubs, bars and hotels and enter into a lively exchange with their audiences. Each »Ecke« becomes a place where art and everyday life meet.
We are pleased to transform Moabit and the Hansaviertel into an exciting field of experimentation and interaction on the topic of hospitality together with the par-ticipating artists and cultural workers and would like to thank all the tirelessly working participants.
We are looking forward to this year's Ortstermin!
Your Festival Team
