sonambiente berlin 2006 is summer in berlin set to music for the eyes and ears. Installations, objects, performances, happenings visual art, sound art, video, new media, radio art, film: from June 1st to July 16th, for the second time since 1996, over 40 internationally known artists and some 20 up-and-coming art school talents make the metropolis reverberate with sound.
At five central venues and many other exciting locales, sonambiente berlin 2006 generates an extensive network of events throughout the centre of Berlin.
With a wide-ranging programme, the festival for hearing and seeing kicks off its opening weekend, June 1st to 5th, parallel to the football world cup.
This major sporting event plays a direct role in several of the artists' works. From June 9th to July 7th, the sonambiente_public viewing sound art lounge at the Haus der Berliner Festpiele will be the place to watch live broadcasts of the football matches amidst the arts.
sonambiente berlin 2006 is a production of the Akademie der Künste and the Berliner Festspiele.
The Opening of the exhibition will be on June 1st 18h at the Akademie der Künste Pariser Platz.
