1. A spacial set-up
Welcome to Maximilianstraße, München.
An area where the abundance of glam updates passerbys with the latest aesthetics of the biggest fashion enterprise’s shelter in the rich Bavaria of today.
At a gaze, the area of classical, gothic, rococo Old München or the place where Wassily Kandinsky and the rest of the Neue Künstlervereinigung München showed the middle finger to official academic art in the name of modernism.
Yeah, yeah, whatever. Because for the evenings of the 2nd and 3rd of December Maximilianstraße represented a strongly political and geopolitical statement and rang the bells of free thinking and collaboration against the parasites of nationalism, racism and discrimination in music. Alien Disko, meine Damen und Herren, in München!
The financial risks push promoters to come up with the same safe line ups that block a lot of great live acts to meet our ears. This year, The Notwist, the ground breakers of German indie, took the initiative of opening this debate on Maximilianstraße, in the Münchener Kammerspiele. And we will take it as a ball in the court of “the scene” since it was completely sold out!
