Festival for pop, art, rotation

3 – 6 October 2019

+ Westwerk, Hamburg

+ Studio 45, Künstlerhaus Wendenstraße

+ Barboncino Zwölphi, Golden Pudel Club


Papiripar will present its second edition from 3 to 6 October 2019, again evoking a swirl of experimental pop music, art, film and performance. The pigeonhole labeled POP will be metamorphosed, stretched in all directions, blown up, twisted and re-transformed. Music fans intermingle with art geeks, pub philosophers encounter dancing devils, noise meets vociferous singing. Among disparate spheres, intersections will be exposed and interdisciplinary influences will be illuminated, following the motto: More art in music, more music in art!

Das Echo des Tages


Papiripar will once again take place in the artists spaces Westwerk and Wendenstraße, two venues that look back upon a 25-year tradition of self-organization beyond established structures. Barboncino Zwölphi, a new cultural hub located on the upper floor of the famous Golden Pudel Club, is added as a third venue.

The festival is curated by Florian Bräunlich, Felix Kubin and Nika Son.
