The programme also includes a world premiere of Noriko Kawakami’s new work composed for Trio Omphalos. Music journalist Egbert Hiller will lead a discussion with female composers. Playing joy and humour, energetic surprises and wonderful breaks characterise this programme.

Brachfläche Berliner Straße

„Stadt ohne Mitte – Mitte ohne Stadt“

The artist collective installs a wall newspaper for the Day of Urban Development on the brownfield site Berliner Straße. This “public library” shows the potential of civic participation for urban development via practical examples such as “Tiny Forests”, “Public Cleanliness” and “Tandem Choice Families”. We look forward to conversation, input and exchange of ideas while respecting valid corona rules.

The first signs of another Baltic Raw intervention herald the arrival of spring. The artistic planting in the form of the word “Polis” will already be visible in rudiments, will blossom in the coming weeks and serve as inspiration and joy for the citizens of Lauenburg.



Laboratory for Transitions and Processes

In October 2020, the Hamburg based artists Ina Arzensek and Sarah-Christina Benthien, in collaboration with the Künstlerhaus Lauenburg, embarked on a one-year project with the working title “Laboratory for Transitions and Processes” (LÜP).

Their approach is process-oriented and situational.

A participation process for the town of Lauenburg

In 2019, in co-operation with the Office for Urban Development and the Künstlerhaus Lauenburg, the artist collective Baltic Raw Org developed the artistic-architectural concept „Stadt ohne Mitte – Mitte ohne Stadt“ (City without a centre – centre without a city) for the interim use of an undeveloped patch of land on Berliner Straße.


In order to counteract the spread of the Coronavirus, the Künstlerbar will remain closed until further notice in accordance with the regulations. An event program will not take place.

Thank you for your understanding.
