The silent green Kulturquartier: an event venue and an independent project shaped by the biographies and interests of all involved parties, which has found a unique home in the historic premises of the Wedding Crematorium in Berlin. Privately owned, silent green sees itself as a protected space for thinking, research and experimentation. Transformation is one of the key words guiding this endeavour, not only with regard to the new function of this listed building, but also in terms of work that transcends various forms: the intention is to move the boundaries of individual disciplines so that they can be interlinked in new, hybrid forms. Transformation is also found in the surrounding environment: as a venue, we culturally and politically position ourselves in Berlin, a transformative place for living and working and a nodal point in East and West German history. Aspects of aesthetic, contemporary and sociopolitical change will accompany our programme.
