The Freiraum Festival 2020 focused on two major issues:
"The State of Freedom in Europe today - the ongoing biopolitical crisis and emerging social movements", and
"The State of the Arts - new formats and audiences".
These issues were explored through a variety of different formats: keynote lectures, statements, live discussions, artistic interventions and content produced by the Freiraum partners for the local activities, spread across Europe.
YOU CAN SEE ALL THE MATERIAL BY CATEGORY OR IN THE PLAYLIST BELOW.
