Pop-Kultur 2020

Part I

In this year’s edition of the German Pop-Kultur festival, 36 audio-visual works from around the world will be compiled into three feature-length shows, a kind of supercut of perspectives. In the online show for this year’s Pop-Kultur, the first part welcomes few old acquaintances who are bringing along some brand new material to share with you. Noga Erez, Hendrik Otremba, the RambaZamba Theater house band 21 Downbeat, Hamburg experimental musician Preach and Yeşim Duman have already participated in previous editions of the festival. In Wednesday’s show, they can be seen along with The Notwist, who will present a song from their upcoming album, as well as Wanlov the Kubolor of the Ghanaian duo FOKN Bois, who are in the spotlight of the documentary »Contradict. Ideas for a New World«, which can also be viewed in the Pop-Kultur programme. They will be joined by Yugen Blakrok, CATNAPP with her Commissioned Work, the duo MADANII & LLUCID and a talk about the crisis that art and music are facing in the age of Corona.

The score for all the three parts of our Pop-Kultur show has been composed by Philipp Thimm. Part I ends with credit music by Friends of Gas.
