Point of NEW Return – Late Night with Heinz Bude

At the Late Night at the Gasteig Cultural Center (Black Box) the German sociologist Heinz Bude (among other works, “Die Ausgeschlossenen”; “Das Gefühl der Welt”; “Solidarität”) will deal with the theme of the Munich Biennale, and during a discussion he will explore the social prerequisites for future Points of NEW Return. Heinz Bude was head of the department “The Society of the Federal Republic of Germany” at the Hamburg Institute for Social Research. Since 2000 he has been teaching as Professor of Macrosociology at the University of Kassel.

Many a "NEW Return" is appearing quicker and more unexpectedly as previously thought. Due to the omnipresent effects of the corona crisis we will, together with our collaboration partners, react in a flexible manner. The Munich Biennale will become a dynamic festival in Munich and elsewhere.

Operations have been interrupted in almost all of the theaters and opera houses. This also affects our preparations and rehearsals. For this reason we have reached the following decision: world premieres that cannot be performed in Munich in May 2020 will celebrate their premieres elsewhere or in Munich on a different date.

We are planning to publish the Biennale program in May 2020 in order to conceptually present the entire festival. The Munich Biennale will begin as a physical festival at different locations. The theme and spirit should culminate in the "Salon of Wonders and Views" as a connective element over a long period of time at different locations and always viewable via a live stream. In this manner the issues of new music theater and the Biennale theme "Point of NEW Return" will be reflected and perpetuated.

The advance sale of tickets has been postponed until further notice. We are in close consultations with our partners and the responsible authorities, we will keep you up to date on our website, our social media channels and the newsletter.
