Veranstaltungen in Berlin: 13 Horizonte

With the 13 Horizons cultural program, which runs for several weeks, these
13 partners of Germany, together with the Federal Foreign Office, will honor the achievements of 30 years of partnership encounters at eye level and successful cultural exchange until Dec. 12, 2022 - with concerts, talks, a film series and an exhibition.

On December 12, the cultural program will come to a festive conclusion with an event hosted by the German Foreign Office and cultural representatives at the Pfefferberg Theater. Under the heading "Culture of Transformation - Transformation of Culture," representatives of the Federal Foreign Office and cultural practitioners will look back and forward to the future with the following questions in mind:
How did Germany network with its eastern partners after the fall of the Iron Curtain? What contribution has culture made to rapprochement and how has cultural work changed since then?

Until then, the Berlin public will be offered a variety of new horizons:
  • with an exhibition of Uzbek art (Nov. 24-Dec. 4 in the Lobe Block),
  • a lecture on German traces in Azerbaijan (Nov. 29),
  • a concert reading with three well-known female artists from Georgia (Nov. 29),
  • a cultural event in Berlin's Konzerthaus. at the Konzerthaus Berlin),

  • an evening of piano music by a Moldavian pianist (Dec. 6 at the Piano Salon Christophori),
  • and a screening of the film "Deset u pola," which reflects with humor on the pandemic in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
