New stock grant holder / 1st half of 2021

The stock grant for the first half of 2021 goes to cultural scientist and designer Bergit Faßl, who works with her interdisciplinary platform a.ACHAT at the intersection of contemporary art, fashion/costume, music and food. The jury chose her promising costume design plans for the music theater project in public space “Wem gehört Lauratibor – Eine Protestoper”. The premiere is scheduled for May 29, 2021 around the area of Kreuzberg’s Reichenberger Straße, Mariannenplatz and Kottbusser Tor.

“Wem gehört Lauratibor” deals with the sellout of the city. Tenants from threatened projects along Reichenberger Straße have joined forces for this project. Author Tina Müller has written a libretto from their stories, which will be set to music by composer Anders Ehlin. The set is being developed by teams of professional stage and costume designers, most of whom come from the projects involved. In a common visual language that is as committed to agitprop as it is to a citational application of elements from fairy tales, sagas and science fiction, the individual artists are given the freedom to realize their respective visions.

We congratulate Bergit Faßl and thank the jury and all candidates for their applications.
