Cinema Meets Culinary Art

30 years on from the Fall of the Berlin Wall


Günther Fischer & Band
Guests: Laura Fischer and Andreas Dresen

Michael Hoffmann’s Garden Picnic

a film by Andreas Dresen

Every year, Dieter Kosslick and the Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg host ‘Kino trifft Kulinarik’ (‘Cinema Meets Culinary Art’) – a celebration of the senses, a meeting of various different media and art forms. Film, music, a lively discussion and an unusual picnic all come together beneath the ancient trees in the historic park designed by Lenné.

This year’s edition is dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, which shaped Germany’s history like no other event since the end of the Second World War. With his film Gundermann, Andreas Dresen revisits the time of Germany’s reunification and the last years of the GDR – an unusual film that gives rise to many questions. Its director Andreas Dresen will be discussing the issue of how to approach such monumental subjects like the GDR and Germany’s reunification with all its ramifications thirty years later with the author Jutta Voigt and the evening’s curator Dieter Kosslick.

After the discussion, Günther Fischer, a musician who added a modern, creative and cosmopolitan twist to the GDR’s ‘soundtrack’, will be stepping onto the open air stage in the castle park with his band and a few selected guests.

Exclusive picnic hampers containing a selection of food for two compiled by Michael Hoffmann especially for this event will be available on the evening, by pre-order only. Please see for full details of the Michael Hoffmann picnic menu, which is offered in collaboration with the Schloss Neuhardenberg kitchens.
