With its new concert programme, the Resident Music Collective refers to the exhibition Blown Away: The Palace of the Republic, which will open in Mai 2024. Music has played a major role in the Palace of the Republic, from the laying of the foundation stone to its interim uses between 2003 and 2005. The Marstall building, where the administration – and surveillance – of the Palace of the Republic once sat, is now home to the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler. For this reason, students and instruments from the university will be playing in the 15-piece ensemble, which will approach the phenomenon of the Kulturpalast in many voices. Palaces are characterised by a façade that stands out in comparison to its urban surroundings; a palace façade can be read like a musical score.

Great Hall, Foyer with Glass Flower, Bowling Alley, Youth Club, Milk Bar, Theatre in the Palace – these places resonate in the memories of those who experienced them – and are unheard-of spaces of possibility for posterity. A cultural centre becomes a palace of the people through the possibility of participation, which the audience has in this unusual, transtraditional concert.

The Resident Music Collective, founded in summer 2021 for the opening of the Humboldt Forum by musicians from Berlin’s diverse urban society, always invites you on a journey of discovery with music beyond tradition.
