This was a series of events that accompanied the Classic exhibition. The idea has been to analyze and present the ways that classic culture is interpreted today in the fields of theatre, dance, opera, films, music and fashion. We as initiators, asked the colleagues of other cultural Institutes, to explore with us the notion of classic today and bring examples from their countries. The outcome? More than 78 events all over the city which demonstrated the important role that classic and its revivals played in European culture. Through our initiative we proposed the beginning of the GEK, the Union of the European Cultural Institutes in Berlin, which later on became the well known EUNIC.
