Brasil: Copa da Cultura

Brasil: Copa da Cultura

14 June 06 - 14 June 08

Culture and football – this liaison is a matter of course for a country in which a special feeling for the body, its movements, and its rhythms are basic to cultural identity. The singing legend Gilberto Gil and the football legend Pelé have launched the initiative for a Brazilian “cultural world championship” – Copa da Cultura 2006 – parallel to the football world championships. Open-air concerts by top stars, exhibitions, football broadcasts, dance, films, discussions – the House of World Cultures is Berlin’s center of the culture campaign.
