FESTIVAL ÜBER LEBENSKUNST
Haus der Kulturen der Welt
17.08. – 21.08.2011

In cooperation with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, the German Federal Cultural Foundation initiated the multi-part ÜBER LEBENSKUNST project, which has been bringing together actors from a wide range of disciplines to identify existing strategies and develop models of sustainable living fit for daily life. During the 101-hour Festival ÜBER LEBENSKUNST artists, scientists and activists turned the Haus der Kulturen der Welt into a place where visitors can try out the sustainable “art of living”.

Friedrich Kunath’s work focusses on universal themes of the human condition: love, loss, loneliness, optimism and dejection, all imparted with tragicomic pathos. Apart from the installation on the main exhibition room, the artist also installed a bar in the entrance hall of Schinkel Pavillon.
