Labor Beethoven 2020 Plattform Thessaloniki 2019

Exhibition, Workshops, Concerts

By 2016, the Akademie der Künste had already initiated an ambitious and international project: Labor Beethoven 2020, supervised by the Music Section, offers a team of young composers and artists from Tel Aviv, Basel and Thessaloniki an open forum for artistic exchange and experimentation over a period of three years. As part of the nationwide Beethoven 2020 anniversary celebrations, the laboratory examines ways to the avant-garde and of crossing boundaries.

After a week of intensive cooperation, workshops and rehearsals with guest artists at the Akademie der Künste, Berlin in February 2019, Labor Beethoven is invited to present the results of these experiments by the Experimental Center for the Arts in Thessaloniki. In a concert and exhibition, the young artists will present their new works and sound installations that have been developed over the years in the Labor (laboratory) or are to be further developed before the final festival in Berlin in March 2020.
