A Pre-Passover Experience For Everyone Who Hates Being Put In A Box… Corona has forced us to confront a variety of new forms of life and being – practically, physically, spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and on many other levels. SHIUR explores the transgression of fixed categories through the dream-like fluidity of the self in a digitally immersive session.

Now in its fifth year, the ID Festival reflects on the complex relationships between Israelis and Germans living in Germany and the questions they pose to one another. Under the artistic

SHIUR is an ongoing project, founded in Berlin by Micki Weinberg, and supported by ID Festival since 2018. The project offers multidisciplinary immersive experiences. SHIUR brings together a diverse group of people to explore culture, spirituality and theory through a critical yet engaged attitude. Since the start of the pandemic, the SHIUR community meets in a digital salon. This summer, in the frameworks of the initiative "1700 Jahre Jüdisches Leben in Deutschland", public SHIUR events in major cities across Germany are planned, to highlight the bond between each city and their relationship to German Jewish thought.
ID Festival is supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, the Berlin Senate Chancellery for Culture and Europe, the Friedrichshain - Kreuzberg District Office and the Szloma Albam Foundation.
