The TAK venues has existed for the last seven years and recently issued a call for a new concept. In response to this impulse, the artists and artist collectives kainkollektiv (Bochum), suite42 (Berlin), France-Elena Damian (Berlin) and Anna Koch/Moritz Pankok (tak e.V. Berlin/Mülheim) came together with the shared idea of establishing a collective management model for an independent theater led by several groups on an equal basis; tak Theater Aufbau Kreuzberg.
At the reopening in January 2018, all of the following plans and ideas for the founding of tak were still "under construction - im Aufbau" - a state of being that will be a guiding theme throughout the year 2018. This is a fact that we would like to use transparently and productively.
On the one hand, this idea follows the mutual focus regarding the content for the theater’s orientation on transnational and multilingual projects which take into consideration the topics and questions of globalized societies in the 21st century. Each of these artist groups/artists have been consistently developing and fulfilling a myriad of cross-border projects for many years between different parts of Germany (e.g. North-Rhine Westphalia, Berlin) Algeria, Cameroon, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Romania, Syria and the USA as well as with Roma artists with different backgrounds. A part of this process from the very beginning has also been the creation of partnerships and the artistic and political discussion with artists who live in Germany in exile, which will be developed further in the new tak.
On the other hand, the idea for this collaboration is based on the artistic and organizational search for a new and innovative form of collective management and aesthetic production methods. The reopening of tak constitutes a pilot project that relates to the growing public discussion between the institutional theaters and the independent performing arts community regarding the future of theater structures (in Germany). The search for new intersections between the communities in Germany's federal states has also played a large role in this discussion. In light of this, a part of the new collective management team of tak will be the group kainkollektiv from Bochum in order to create new alliances and utilize existing potentials between independent performing arts community across Germany.
