jan.ehret for Christoph Schlingensief’s Operndorf Afrika
Charity Party
02.03.
Grüner Salon

In 2009 Christoph Schlingensief founded the Operndorf Afrika in Burkina Faso. He was an exceptional artist who resuscitated and revolutionized experimental theater. Always different, always distinctive, Schlingensief was always himself, simply Schlingensief: a motivator for a whole generation of artists. Whether it was in his films, at the Wagner Festival in Bayreuth, on MTV, or at the Volksbühne, he had no truck with conventions.

This evening at the Volksbühne—Schlingensief’s artistic home—begins with a concert by the band popkornzone. Ferdinand and Milan Dölberg (popcorn brothers) as well as Fabian Hub had three-month-long artist residencies at the Operndorf Afrika in Burkina Faso until the end of January 2019. Alongside Max Selvi, Gabriel Helfenstein, and Antonio Colli, they’ll provide us with rock and popcorn under the motto “From corn to popcorn, from everyone for everyone.” Afterwards, jan.ehret will preside over the evening’s entertainment. The resident DJ at Kit Kat Club is the initiator of this charity party and, as an artist, often switches between underground scenes and high culture, between exhibitions and clubs.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to Operndorf Afrika’s non-profit GmbH.
