Performing 68/89

Theme-based evening at Kampnagel, Hamburg. Funded through Zipp – German-Czech Cultural Projects / Thematic focus “68/89 – Art.Contemporary.History.”

Pop culture triumphantly marched across Eastern and Western Europe in the 1960s. Music played a significant role with songs that became popular around the world. This theme-based evening examined how the tumultuous period around 1968 was reflected in music. Which songs were and still are connected to 1968 in both the East and West? How did music function as the expression of social change, and how does it function today?

Schedule and venue:
1 November 2008 Kampnagel Hamburg
