, Langhansstrasse 86, 13086 Berlin PROGRAM
SAVE THE DATE! From July to October 2021 our TEAHOUSE will be popping up outdoors in the courtyard of C*SPACE, a workspace in an old furniture factory in the former “Gründerviertel” of Berlin Weissensee characterized by historic yards, now often places for art and creative industries. By tapping the communicative power of sharing and enjoying tea together, we aim at creating a new shared space for the Asia-Berlin community as well as for anyone interested in strengthening intercultural and intellectual exchange and East-West encounters.
With the traditional popular teahouse as our original inspiration, we picture a contemporary interpretation for the year 2021: A free space to rest and relax, a social space to (re)think, reflect and discuss, and a cultural space for active participation and appreciation.
The TEAHOUSE Talks are a series of dialogues on topics ranging from globalization, history, ethics and philosophy, to socio-political current developments and ideas for social innovation.
The TEAHOUSE Maker Workshops are for those who want to have hands-on experiences. With reference to the calligraphic art work at the C*SPACE art room, one key theme in the workshop series will centre on calligraphy and font art as one way of exploration of East-West understanding. Other workshops will pay reference to the need for more resource-consciousness and look at re-using and up-cycling practices (e.g. Kintsugi).
The TEAHOUSE Performances – music concert, film screening, etc. – mark the program highlight in the evening.
The last TEAHOUSE event will take place on October 9 as part of the AsiaBerlin Summit 2021
