    The Berliner Festspiele is a modern promoter of cultural events with a unique structure: it simultaneously implements exhibitions at the Martin Gropius Bau as well as performances at its Festivals, academy programmes and guest production series. The interplay of different art forms that results from this is unrivalled and highly significant for the development of the modern arts. Contemporary in its perspective, international in its aims and exceptional in its format – this combination has led to the Festspiele establishing a good name for both its own and its co-productions in the world of art, while its festivals are fixtures in the European cultural calendar. Festivals such as MaerzMusikTheatertreffenJazzfest Berlin and Musikfest Berlin are of a high quality, as are the large-scale retrospectives in the Festspiele’s art and exhibition venue. These always set new standards in the presentation of innovative contemporary art, for example with focus on “Between the Arts”, or “Festival as a Time Laboratory”. Festivalgoers have become significantly younger over the past few years, and the Festspiele itself has been committed to the support of children and adolescents for decades.
