HEIMSPIEL – Berlin’s Music Scene Live at Home

In a time in which no concerts, no party nights and no promo tours throughout the republic can take place, we conducted video interviews with Berlin musicians, bands, DJs, label bosses, concert organizers as well as club and venue owners about their current situation. We want to give a voice to those who have shaped, determined and influenced the Berlin music scene for years. They tell us about the changes in their everyday life and the effects of the crisis on their creative work.

HEIMSPIEL highlights the impressive versatility and enormous ingenuity of the music scene. The episodes are around four minutes long and not only provide a cross-section of all conceivable musical genres of Berlin's nightlife which has been virtually at a standstill for many months and of the concert halls that have become quiet, but also of all social classes, of different fates, life concepts and ways of dealing with crisis situations.

The videos feature artists like Dota Kehr, Álvaro Soler, Rainald Grebe, Alina, Tex, Senta-Sofia Delliponti, Mal Élevé, Andreas Barthelemes and many more.

The video premieres are now available on the re:publica channels and as a video installation in the #rpCampus exhibition "Netz Werke".

HEIMSPIEL is a joint project of republica GmbH and Kathrin Lang/KlangPR. It is realized in cooperation with DieArbeiter Film- und Werbeproduktion GmbH and is funded by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.
