Programme – FAVORITEN 2022

It was an exciting year in which we travelled the country for FAVORITEN 2022: We have experienced a lot, were able to witness wonderful artistic works and would like to thank you very much for this.
We fell in love with NRW’s independent scene (LINK) and were now faced with the task of making a selection from all these special experiences, in which unfortunately only a fraction of these impressive works could find space.

In numbers: We saw over 500 works last year and can now “only” give 27 positions a place in the programme, which is about 6%.
