It is impossible to imagine the German pop and rock scene without Rio Reiser. 2020 would have been his 70th birthday. Rio gained popularity with his band Ton Steine Scherben, which defined German rock music for 15 years and continues to shape it far beyond that to this day. Their first performance’s 50th anniversary was on September 6, 2020.
On September 5, 2020, eight musicians from Dresden honoured the songs of the band in the form of a live stream from the Chemiefabrik in Dresden. Among them were:
A district for the people instead of cars – this is made possible by the traffic experiment “Woche des guten Lebens”! From May 2 to 9, 2021, the residents of Dresden-Neustadt will collectively design the street spaces in their neighborhood. To make this possible, cars and motorbikes will not be allowed to park in a part of the Äußere Neustadt around Louisenstraße during the “Woche des guten Lebens” and will only be allowed to drive at walking speed. This restricted traffic area can be used by the residents of Dresden-Neustadt – for strolling, for games and sports, or for trying out a cargo bike. The free parking spaces are the place for neighborhood dinners, a barter exchange, or simply for a morning coffee out in the streets!
Jimmy Cutaka is a freelance artist from Halle. His street art is in keeping with the common saying “take to the streets”, which has been used for years to represent protests, uprisings, or rebellions.
“The underlying impulse behind street art arose from the belief that art should function in opposition to, and sometimes even outside of, the prevailing system of laws, ownership, and property. Art should be accessible rather than hidden away in galleries, museums, and private collections…” According to the principle “Art is for everyone!” and everyone should have the opportunity to make art or see art.
Jimmys Art performance will be supported with music by Tini Bot.
