HAU Hebbel am Ufer stands for open discussion, linking artistic positions with the city and its inhabitants. It can be seen as a kind of laboratory, combining global contexts and artistic forms of expression with the questions confronting a changing urban society.
Especially in these socially and politically challenging times, HAU Hebbel am Ufer is convinced of the potential that comes from the intersection of art and society. Through its Outreach Programme HAU brings people together in discussion. The goal is to create sites where we can get acquainted with one another, to bring together knowledge and expertise from a variety of areas, and to facilitate new and unfamiliar perspectives for both the audience and the artists.
