Wunderbar Together @ SXSW
March 8, 2019
Starting March 8, the renowned festival South by Southwest will take place in Austin, Texas. Wunderbar Together will be among countless digital innovations, analog surprises and other exciting guests presenting in Texas.
After a stop in Los Angeles, the Sequencer Tour, a roadshow held jointly by re:publica, the Reeperbahn Festival and the next media accelerator, is headed to SXSW. You can bask in the collective creativity of these three partners at various concerts, forums and presentations across Austin.
The Berlin Institute for Music and Sound will present its brand-new project, Hexadome, brought over to the USA as a part of the Year of German-American Friendship. “Virtual Bauhaus,” a joint project of the Goethe-Institut Boston and the Cologne Game Lab, allows you to join a world-wide virtual celebration of the legendary Bauhaus School in observance of its 100th anniversary.
One Inch Dreams will premiere its making-of video, showcasing its spectacular balancing act in Monument Valley, the “Key Visual” of the Year of German-American Friendship. Stages throughout the festival will host discussions on a variety of exciting topics ranging from the future of work in the digital age to gender equality in the music industry. After such a packed schedule, “Wiesn in a Box”, the Goethe-Institut’s mobile Oktoberfest, will be one of several vendors offering the chance to relax and unwind.
The German Haus will once again be serving as the hub for several of these exciting programs. It will also be host to the Kick-off Event for WunderbarTogether@Austin, and you’re invited! The party, hosted by Minister of State Michelle Münterfering, starts at 6:00pm with music by Josin and Kelvyn Colt.
We’re looking forward to you joining us! Click here to RSVP.
