Even though their hit HOLYDAY AM SILBERSEE was broadcast on DT64, the Wolfen punk band AbRAUM remained an insider tip until their break-up in 1991. If you missed them back then, here’s another chance: AbRAUM invites you to a concert and discussion.

Each day of the festival, a discussion is dedicated to the QUESTION OF THE DAY: artists, visitors and the festival team discuss pressing questions based on specific works of art. This day is about the price of non-conformity: even though their hit HOLIDAY AM SILBERSEE was broadcast on DT64, the Wolfen punk band AbRAUM remained an insider tip. If you missed them back then, here’s another chance. AbRAUM invites you to a concert and discussion. Between sets, we want to explore the question of how people who don’t conform to standardized ideas were and are treated. The relationship to the punks, who were attacked not only by the state apparatus but also by citizens in the GDR and who also experienced exclusion and violence in the so-called baseball bat years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, highlights a fundamental difficulty in dealing with the supposedly different. How can we relate artistically and politically to the sad tradition of violence against deviance?
