This year’s Isarflux Festival sees the birth of a new concept. Each afternoon, the Gasteig’s trainees organise a cultural fair in Hall X together with the nonprofit Signal e. V.

With a focus on discourse, the Signal activists will provide information and answer visitors’ questions all around the topic of “Subculture in Munich – Youth in Munich”. The main issues covered are vacant properties, existing open spaces in Munich and Munich’s subculture. The goal is to create a platform for helping young people air their wishes and needs and contribute to creating a more liveable city.

 

There is also space for activities such as screen printing and clothes swapping, and there will, of course, be music, food and drink.

 

Signal e. V. is a Munich nonprofit that aims to demonstrate the ways in which subculture enriches life in the city. Its young proponents campaign for the preservation of subculture, the creation of new open spaces, the prevention of their demise, and a reduction in the number of vacant properties.

“People should have the opportunity to participate in cultural life regardless of their appearance, origin and financial status.”

Max Rusp, member of Signal e. V.
