The Neuburger Sommerakademie has been taking place since 1978 and without a doubt makes an immeasurable contribution towards the overarching exchange, networked communication and mutual understanding, which is a necessity especially in today's era of globalization, since overcoming ethnocentrism is a prerequisite for understanding the culturally different.
It is all the more gratifying that in recent years the Summer Academies have attracted more and more participants from abroad and thus not only have a supra-regional but also an international impact. Inspiring our participants to take global responsibility for their artistic actions seems to me to be a particularly important task in this sense. In a world that seems to be losing all empathy, it is all the more important for the arts not to unite regionally, but to counteract this apocalyptic phenomenon in a well-connected way.
Every year, the city of Neuburg also sets an example for intercultural communication with its long-standing summer academy, whereby there are no limits to interdisciplinary integration in the individual departments and courses.
Here everything is conceivable and everything conceivable is possible. There are no limits to the ideas. Interdisciplinary communication and spontaneous action are desirable, also because we want to give more space to improvisation and cannot pretend that it is just a musical phenomenon.
In this sense, I wish all of us, including at the 46th Summer Academy, sufficient attachment and freedom, so that the “Neuburger Sommerakademie” does not become too academic.
