Yule: Exhibition, Gathering, Spectacle, Berlin







Well, we had so much fun last time at Gelegenheiten – we’re doing it again!

Join us for another exhibition to explore history behind the holidays – this time, the northern hemisphere’s longest night: Yule, Solstice, Candlemas, the pagan roots of today’s consumerist festant: Christmas.

Music, théâtre, wishes on the Holly King’s lap, costume design, polaroid photos with the Holly King and his sexy pagan faerie guide (costume designed by Marie Odile), cookie decorating, egg-nog drinking, upcycling re-gift exchanges, trees, candles, Verbal Self Defense workshop, family dinner, twisted caroling, and more.

Here’s a rough schedule of events (subject to revision)
