Study is a time to experience culture, to try out things and to develop creativity. To do this, you need space, support and an open environment. The BKI - Office Culture & International Affairs of the studierendenWERK BERLIN offers exactly that.

Berlin Stories

Berlin Stories - City writer program

With the city writer project "Berlin Stories" we want to capture the specific perspective of Berlin students. Each year, a different writer is selected by a jury. 

The writer-in-residence 2021 is Momo Bera!

Read the Berlin Stories here. (NB: the stories are mainly in German.)

Kunstraum
 
 

Kunstraum

KUNSTRAUM offers new rooms at various locations of studierenWERK BERLIN. Students can express themselves artistically there, for example with exhibitions, installations, performances and media works. The locations offer a wide variety of spaces and exciting forms of interaction with the public: from gallery-like rooms in refectories to well-hidden, underground labyrinths and huge, abandoned parking garages located in the middle of Berlin's thriving gallery scene on Potsdamer Strasse.

Events in residence halls
 
 

Events in residence halls

We support cultural projects in the student residence halls that encourage a harmonious living together. In the residence tutor program, tutors support and give advice to new - especially international - residents. With events such as the residence quiz or residence football championship, we bring together students from different residences to have fun together and to win prizes.

Get Together
 
 

Get Together

'Get Togethers' are our events where you can easily meet fellow students, exchange views, discover Berlin or simply have a good time with friends. Our Get Togethers are very interesting for international students, as they can discover Berlin and meet open minded people who are interested in intercultural exchanges.

Film
 
 

Film

In May 2020, the office for culture and international affairs is organising the "Film it!" short film competition for the third time. This time under the motto #stayathome. In many of our other projects and events students film works have been shown, such as part of installations in exhibitions or in theatre plays. In addition, the Büro Kultur & Internationales produces films and music videos, for example with our Choir Unität or for our exchange project ParisXBerlin.

Literature
 
 

Literature

Berlin writes many stories. That's why we invite all students who write literary texts to present them on our reading platform Lies los! The project "Berlin Stories" captures the perspective of our writers in residence on their life in Berlin over a year. And in the intercultural writing group "TextTransit", student writers with diverse cultural backgrounds work together and develop a literature festival. You can find detailed information about our projects here and current events in the event calendar.

Stage & Music
 
 

Stage & Music

We offer during the semester many music and stage events in which students can just watch and listen or stand on stage, like in our talent competition "Mix it! Talent". Some of our other projects are Voguing, Unität Choir, the Freispieler or Improtheater - and every student can join in all of them. More information about the events and registering for them can you find in our event calendar.
