The contract of the former acting director of the Salzburg Festival extended for another five years
“We owe Thomas Oberender cultural events that shake things up and break the usual perspectives,” said the German Minister of State for Culture Monika Grütters (CDU) in the statement. He initiated many important social discussions. With the contract extension, the federal government is sending “a signal of appreciation for art and theater as a critical corrective of our society”. The Berliner Festspiele realize festivals such as MaerzMusik or Jazzfest Berlin, exhibitions, national competitions and events mainly in the Haus der Berliner Festspiele and the Gropius Bau.
