The Fräulein Culture Guide for June
Go to 48 STUNDEN NEUKÖLLN around Berlin
19th – 21th June
“Stay at home, we’ll bring the art to you.” 48 STUNDEN NEUKÖLLN, Berlin’s largest free art festival, will take place this year from June 19 to 21, 2020, primarily digitally. Under the title Boom #systemrelevant, it’s all about the big bang and what contribution art and culture can make to better understand and master the current extraordinary situation. Festival visitors* can participate on the computer and on the street: Exhibition visits and artist talks are transferred into digital spaces, billboards and shop windows become exhibition spaces.
See Yael Bartana film “Pardes (Orchard)” at Berlinische Galerie IBB-Video Space
4th – 29th June
In the IBB-Video Space works by the Israeli artist Yael Bartana express the relationship between personal responsibility and collective action. Her videos, installations, and photographs combine documentary aspects with poetic alienation and investigate the role of images in spreading ideologies.
View the works of Louise Bourgeois online at HAUSER & WIRTH
Hauser & Wirth has inaugurated their online viewing room with an exhibition of French-American artist Louise Bourgeois. The drawing was a daily ritual throughout Bourgeois’s seven-decade career, used as a necessary tool to record and exorcise her memories and emotions.
Escape the city and visit Sanssouci Park
Also known as the Versaille of Berlin, Sanssouci Park is the perfect spot to go on a summer day over the weekend and one of the popular attractions for anyone visiting Potsdam. Only 26 kilometers from Berlin. With many magnificent palaces and landscapes in Potsdam, many visiting Sanssouci Park should take advantage of all it has to give.
A mid-19th century jewel of rococo architecture and garden art, Sanssouci Park was designed, in part, by Frederick the Great and created by the leading artists of his time.

The online collection catalog offers the opportunity to research and view over 860 works by more than 255 artists from the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION. Over the next months, videos and films will be continually uploaded and made accessible online. They are accompanied by explanatory texts about the works.
Listen and watch the Fête de la Musique 2020 at various location
On June 21st the worldwide celebration of music and music-making should not be ignored. Fête de la Musique 2020 invites all artists, musicians, and music-maker (amateur or pro) to a Fête de la Haus-Musique. Fans are urged to make music at home: on the sofa, on the balcony, or in the shower in the digital realm. The idea is a concept that waves a banner for creativity and joy that pours out of us when we hear – and make – good music. Until the Fete happens audiences will be presented with on-going live streams from their partners on their website. On the day there will be a wide range of new streams available on the website and between 5 pm to 6 pm, there will be a singalong-highlight.
