Import Export Open 2021
Things are finally happening again in the Kreativquartier. The Import Export Open is entering its fourth round - come what may. Kunstzentrat e.V. is optimistic and has planned the festival program through to October. From May 26, you can look forward to an extensive live program with concerts, film screenings, readings, panel discussions and events to participate in. If the weather doesn't play along or the corona rules don't allow it: the events will still take place, but via livestream.
For five months, every Wednesday to Saturday, the Open Air in the Import Export courtyard offers a diverse program of events. Collectives such as We Won't Shut Up!, Behind The Green Door, Klimacamp München and other organizers from Munich are co-curating this year's Import Export Open. Katharina Walpoth, project manager for culture, comments:
We wanted to create a program that radiates diversity. It should reflect all milieus and generations and encourage cultural participation.
Each month has a different focus. May, for example, focuses on "women in music". In June, you can look forward to atmospheric sounds ranging from Anatolian, Arabic and Mediterranean surf to folk rock when the festival focuses on the Turkish diaspora. You will only find out what the remaining months have in store for you in the coming weeks. What is certain is that there will be a wide-ranging program for all age groups.
In addition to local artists from Munich and the surrounding area, more international guests will once again be represented. The program ranges from world music to experimental pop and new jazz - there is something for everyone.
It really isn't long now until we can once again sit together with friends in the Import Export Open beer garden, listen to the music and enjoy the balmy summer evening. At the beginning of the program, the events had to take place digitally for the time being, but from May 26, 2021 you can celebrate on site again.
