Interview

Was Chris Dercon an der Volksbühne ändern will

Mitte 2017 wird Chris Dercon Intendant der Volksbühne. Wir sprachen mit dem Belgier über den Streit um seine Ernennung zum Volksbühnen-Chef, seine Pläne für Berlin und warum er immer ins Berghain kommt.

Seit Oktober 2014 liefen die Verhandlungen zwischen Chris Dercon, Chef der Londoner Tate, und Kulturstaatssekretär Tim Renner (SPD). Am Ende hat sich der Belgier für Berlin entschieden.
