The Carnival of Galleries

On 11 November 2009, for the first time, the Kulturpalast Wedding International will be organizing an art procession as carnival parade: the Carnival of Galleries.

The Carnival of Galleries is a demonstration with the slogan:

art’s dilemma – self-inflicted
How artists help to redevelop the city and, after all, can no longer afford the expensive spaces. We take the procession seriously: The Carnival of Galleries is the exodus of artists from the city. Goodbye!

All Berlin galleries, projects rooms and artists are invited to support our demands with by artist or self-created floats to cross the border from Berlin-Mitte to Wedding. Showcase art, be loud, flaunt banners. And costumes.

The route of the demonstration leads from Brunnenstrasse over Badstrasse, Prinzenallee, and Soldiner Strasse right up to Freienwalder Strasse where a final rally with carnival speeches and participant’s messages will take place between Kulturpalast Wedding International and St. Elisabeth cemetery. Floats with a footprint of 90 x 215 cm (entrance width) will do a round of honour through the rooms of the Kulturpalast.

Subsequently, a costumed panel discussion will be held. Carnival celebrations complete the november Wednesday. In addition, music bands from Wedding will play.

Meeting point and arrangement of the floats is on 11 November 2009 at 11:11 am in Anklamer Strasse, between Strelitzer Strasse and Brunnenstrasse. Shortly afterwards, we turn into Brunnenstrasse.

You may attend with floats, passenger cars, bikes and vehicles of any kind. Banners and art are welcome.

We look forward to your participation. Dress warm!
