After the event in Paris in February 2021 at Louvre auditorium, the Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin invites you to discover its new programme from August 25 to 29, 2021 in Berlin at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and live online.

This new edition offers many highlights. These include a carte blanche to an unclassifiable artist, Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Thailand) who received the Jury Prize at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, a special screening with Heinz Emigholz (Germany), major figure in European contemporary cinema, and a rare multimedia performance by the acclaimed sound artist Novi_sad.
There will be also new works by Salomé Lamas (Portugal; Berlinale, Do Chiado National Museum of Contemporary Art in Lisbon), George Drivas (Greece; exhibited notably at the 57th Venice Biennale and at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens), Christelle Lheureux (France; Centre Pompidou, Jeu de Paume), Masbedo (Italy; MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Arts, Locarno Festival), John Menick (USA; dOCUMENTA (13), MoMA PS1), Wojciech Puś (Poland; Warsaw Museum of Modern Art), Pilvi Takala (Finland; exhibited notably at Kiasma Museum of contemporary art, and who will be exhibited at the 59th Venice Biennale), and many others.
A major event with free admission, accessible to all audiences and professionals, the Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin is a unique platform in Europe: a space for exchange and experience, with a rare openness to contemporary audiovisual creation and a special focus on singular approaches.
