Berlin 2021 Lockdown Diaries - A Podcast on Culture from the Couch

5:00 - 8:00 pm

What happens to Berlin culture during a year of lockdowns? In this community-facing initiative, students went out to explore what the emerging digital culture of closed theaters, museums, cinemas, and clubs might look like on the ground. They took a series of virtual journeys - sometimes alone, sometimes together -  to places near and far to find out how we can re-connect with each other digitally from our own living-room couch. Whether at the Gorki Theater or the Gropius Bau, or far away in Iceland, Scotland or the US, they were surprised, sometimes critical, and gained a new sense of what cultural life had on offer and how it has adapted to the pandemic.

In this exhibition students share some of these experiences both of isolation and reconnection and offer cultural tips on the side.
