Press release

An art festival in the centre of Munich, open to all art forms and anyone who is interested. A festival that is not aimed at financial gain, and that is organised completely without any money at all.

For a long time it was considered almost impossible. But now it is happening. With many thanks to I.T.E.M, a young events agency, who have provided us free of charge with a wonderful space – the Säulenhalle. Also thanks to the many sponsors, volunteers, helpers, and of course over 40 artists from many nations.

The festival OFF-Munich aims at bringing art away from any commercial context, and gives artists from all genres, the opportunity to explore their projects without a set theme or selection process. The festival offers space for experiment, exchange of ideas, and the chance to connect, develop and present.

The festival is seen as a working laboratory, where not just finished work will be presented, but also projects will be developed, changed and redrawn anew. Visitors can accompany the process as the art unfolds by entering into a dialogue with the artists.

Admission to the festival is free. 

Scheduled throughout each day there will be music, dance, theatre and experimental performances. A film room will show documentary's and other experimental pieces.

In conjunction with the festival is the after-show party organised by the artist group 'Tam Tam', with live music and DJ's in Ballroom.  Although this event is not free, by paying a small fee you can let the sounds ring out into the night, and extend your experience of an eventful and inspiring festival.
