About

We are an Experimental FutureLab, an interdisciplinary group of international artists and visionaries, who have come together for the first time to organise ENDLICH - The First Festival of Utopias. 

ENDLICH introduces you into the rich multiverse of utopias from an artistic, social, and scientific angle. The program of the festival includes installations that deals with the water crisis and the melting of the arctic ice, social sculptures that addresses  the issue of plastic waste and points towards new ways of dealing with it, and video installations that devote themselves to the food crisis and its ecological and moral consequences. 

ENDLICH presents immersive mappings that reflect on the current development of technology, audio performances that deal with biodiversity, noise music that arouse discussions about the future of genders and love, and experimental dance that involve AI and intergalactic interactions. 

For ENDLICH we have developed participatory formats for building communities, facilitating encounters, and exchanging knowledge, in a way that is inclusive and positive. These formats include a Global Citizenship Embassy, Social Prepper Workshop Series, and a Futuristic Kongress of Utopias, in which we will deal with philosophical, political, social, environmental, economical topics and introduce new kinds of rituals for the audiences to build, share and enact a positive future.

ENDLICH lasts 3 days, from September 20 to 22, and it takes place in an abandoned power plant in Berlin-Steglitz. ENDLICH is the first exploration of possible future scenarios and tools that connect research, arts, and culture in a participatory way where most of the program is realised in collaboration with the audience members. It is an engine for the imagination about novel use of abandoned industrial sites. We are working on one concrete site of this kind, an empty power-plant, that will be transformed into a meeting point and a vehicle of creative imagination. 

Our  vision is that after having tested this model in Berlin, we will also bring ENDLICH to many other places later on. Our laboratory for utopias is created as a modular happening that can then be translated into other participatory formats, taking place in other locations in Germany and all over the world.

Risks and challenges

As a nonprofit-organisation our finances are based on fundings. But bureaucracy is slow and we still didn't get enough money together to make this amazing, power-plant to a save and technically equipped event location. With supporting us you can help us creating the infrastructure for the ENDLICH-Festival, the First Festival of Utopias, and transforming the abandoned power plant in Berlin-Steglitz into an art space.
