redeem رديم is a platform for ongoing conversations between voices from Beirut in Berlin and peers around the world. It acts upon a collaborative desire to amplify and deepen an already existing exchange between cultural workers who lived and worked in Lebanon before the country spiraled into its current economic and political void. Many of these conversations have already come a long way. redeem رديم aims to build a support structure through which they can be widely heard and inspired by each other. To that end, it supplies both runway and refuge for artistic positions via workshops, podcasts and a series of events. 

As a collective undertaking, redeem رديم always remains on the path to define its form and take the time to grow and understand its needs and demands. For now, it has nothing to proclaim. It only asks for your allyship with a growing community in need of safe spaces to reflect recent events and workable ideas of change.

Following a week-long workshop at Künstlerhof Frohnau in June 2021, this community created an event at Haus der Statistik in August 2021 in Berlin where a line-up of talks, films, music, readings and live performances took place. The main venue was located in Haus A facing Karl-Marx-Allee, selected programs and all films screenings took place in the magic bumper car turned cinema (Autoskino) behind the building.
