Sailors and Fishermen

Sea Myths, Sites of Longing and Hellish Caves

Open-Air on the River Spree (in case of rain in the exhibition hall)

There is far more to sailor’s shanties and fishermen's songs than ‘Junge, komm bald wieder’ and ‘What shall we do with the drunken sailor’. Beyond the world of shanties and rocking away to the music, all cultures have developed their own way of singing the praises of the magic and romanticism of the sea, and he adventures associated with it.

Milena Fessmann, moderator of "free falling" on radioeins, will be leading through the weekend.
