TALKS AND MUSIC AROUND THE TOPIC "VISIONS FOR FRANKFURT"

The Konzerthaus as a think tank and field of experimentation: As part of its new festival "Fratopia", the Alte Oper Frankfurt will be transformed for an afternoon into a creative space where questions about the future of the city of Frankfurt will be negotiated as well as visions concerning the future concert business. Not only experts from various fields will have their say, but also citizens, who can contribute their own ideas both in advance and on the day itself.

"Ideas Marathon" is accordingly the motto on Sunday, 26 September 2021. September 2021, the motto that stands over a diverse, freely combinable program.

Daniel Libeskind and Zoë Beck will open the afternoon

Opening at 2.00 with a keynote address by architect Daniel Libeskind and a conversation with writer Zoë Beck, who are collaborating to develop a "City of Imagination."

Following this, visitors* will have the choice between several rounds of talks, some taking place at the same time, some one after the other, on topics such as the possibilities and limits of the digital world, the future of the concert business, civic movements, participation or impulses from Frankfurt's university landscape.

In the Mendelssohn Salon, tubist and sound designer Jonas Urbat develops visionary soundscapes with pianist Felix Nagl. And the Albert Mangelsdorff Foyer will be transformed into a "World Café", an established workshop format in which visitors are brought into conversation together at tables to address specific questions.

Eleven individual events are on the four-hour programme, with luminaries in their field as well as active "players" from Frankfurt's urban society, observers, doers and citizens coming together to discuss issues relevant to the future from multiple perspectives.

Your own ideas wanted

The "Ideas Marathon" of the Alte Oper is also linked to the research project "Urban Xtopias - Your (T)Space for the Future" of the German Institute of Urban Affairs (difu) Berlin and the University of Kassel. Within this project, all interested parties are invited to actively participate in the science of urban research.

Those who would like to participate in the research project can submit ideas, wishes and free fantasies until September 20. Contributions in the form of texts, pictures, collages, etc. are requested that illustrate the idea of a very personal urban "play space". The ideas for the future submitted will be published on the website of the Alte Oper Frankfurt, and selected entrants will be given the opportunity to join in the discussion on the podium.
