On the second weekend of Advent, the silent green community of tenants opens its doors and warmly invites you to take part in our winter market. At all kinds of booths, both inside and outside, you can get to know and take home delicious and beautiful things from the house and the neighbourhood, collect gift ideas, watch children’s cinema, listen to concerts and DJ sets, make something yourself, or simply enjoy one or two pre-Christmas treats outside by the fire bowl or inside in the warmth.
On both days, the Kino Arsenal offers children from the age of 6 the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of film: On Saturday, the composer and silent film pianist Eunice Martins invites you to a sound workshop. Afterwards, two films with Laurel & Hardy will be shown, which will be scored live by the participants. On Sunday, filmmakers Ute Aurand and Robert Beavers will present a children’s cinema programme of short experimental films.
Musical highlights on Saturday in our Betonhalle will be a couple of DJ sets by silent green tenants and, starting at 6 p.m., live concerts by former Musicboard Berlin scholarship holders.
And at the end of this fortunately again somewhat culturally rich year, we look back on our Derek Jarman exhibition The Garden. Cinematics of the Soil, which took place this summer. On Sunday evening, starting at 6 pm, the curatorial team will present the complete exhibition catalogue that is now being published as part of the project, followed by a reading by the participating filmmaker Philip Scheffner, and we will once again show Jarman’s film The Garden, which wanders between dream and reality, idyll and pain, beauty and transience.
