POLIGONAL’s CONSTELLATIONS is not just a festival. It’s a magnum opus celebrating community and creativity with a spectrum of art forms: from urban explorations to electrifying performances, ensemble music, rhythmic dance, and resonant collective listening. The festival is a time capsule keeper of Berlin’s fading queer spaces, archiving and showcasing the city’s historical queer fabric.

Spinning its magic biennially, the festival is on a quest—to reclaim and re-territorialize Berlin’s storied queer locales. Last year, the inaugural feast spotlighted luminaries like Shu Lea Cheang, Liz Rosenfeld, Lux Venérea aka BundAskanzlerin, and Mandhla. More dazzling artists await in the full-blown 2025 edition.

But this year, thanks to the Urban Praxis Foundation, POLIGONAL fine-tunes CONSTELLATIONS for a bespoke Bus Tour. This four-hour labyrinth on wheels will uncloak Berlin’s veiled queer histories, guiding you through tales of aspirational denizens and eclectic pioneers.

Expect co-produced audio snapshots to be archived digitally on the CONSTELLATIONS website, revealing these spaces’ epiphanies for future explorers.

Registration is a must as seats are sweeping away. Tours ignite at 12 pm and 5 pm. Remember, one can hop off but never hop back on.

POLIGONAL transcends urban practice, intertwining artistic flair with curatorial brilliance to reveal non-normative perceptions. These formats—city adventures, immersive audio journeys, and urban-centric curatorial projects—scrutinize topics from urban transformation to marginalization and queerness.
