The Days of German Culture will commence in Satka as part of the Year of Germany in Russia/Deutschlandjahr in Russland.

Thanks to the Satka District Development Assistance Fund application which was approved for funding by the international jury of the project competition within “Days of German Culture in Russian Regions 2021” the town became one of the project sites.

The project events will take place on August 3 to 22 and will introduce us to different spheres of life in Germany, bridge history, education, public initiatives and culture, Satka and Mannheim, modern art and centuries-old traditions. We are in for meetings of minds with artists, musicians and philosophers, exhibitions, German movie screenings, lectures, public talks and master classes.

The world-famous German artist Hendrik Beikirch and the popular street artist, illustrator from Yekaterinburg Natalya Pastuhova will present new murals to the town. Townies and volunteers will help them in the creative process.

The topic of modern art will sound very vividly and intimately in the open-air museum – at the exhibition that will introduce us to the unique and super-popular global-scale event – the STADT.WAND.KUNST street art festival, which has been held in Mannheim since 2013. And our special project within the framework of the “Days of German Culture” has been prepared for our little friends – an interactive tour to Neuschwanstein Castle.

The topic of cinema will be raised twice: session “German Cinema Expressionism” invites everyone to watch silent films of 1920s to the strains of live music; and works of young German filmmakers, united festival movement “German New Wave” can also be explored during our film screenings.

The first event is already tomorrow: the Volphila Philosophical Club invites to a public talk dedicated to Rosa Luxemburg’s philosophical heritage (the 150th anniversary of her birth is celebrated within the framework of the Days of German Culture) to be held on August 3 at 7 p.m. in the Art-Satka.

We are positive that the “Days of German Culture” will become a good tradition in Satka!
