OUR THIS YEAR'S THEME: RAUSCH
No rest, full power – we have to keep moving
This year it´s all about RAUSCH (german word), the Culture Festival Begehungen is dancing to sound and fury. It celebrates euphoria, enjoys the orgiastic, is losing control - opens the door widely to madness. Scared? Don`t worry. Just lose yourself. Welcome to RAUSCH.
Capitulation? RAUSCH, it`s your turn!
Did we already reach the limit? Are we trying too hard to understand? If the ironic self-reference is becoming a feeling of RAUSCH, is there a way to escape? Who is in, who is out, who has the choice? But first a retweet.
Protest: I’m throwing the fucking mobile into the sea
Hangover: How to get back on track
Jumping head first into life, into excess! Sanity is so yesterday. We are celebrating RAUSCH. Naked bodies, pills, madness. We want to have it all and plenty of it.
The day after the world is knocking on my exploding head. She wants usefulness, because in times of self-optimization there is no sleep. Wokeuplikethis, therapy, workout, other pills - a call for sanity.
The solution: RAUSCH releases!
