Song and Social Movements Association
The Association Song and Social Movements was founded in 1991 and had the goal of advance the “collecting and merging of songs and documents of the songwriter-movement and adjacent genres” that “developed in the 1960s in cooperation with the social and political movement” (excerpt from the articles of association). The core of its interest lies in collecting items for the singer- and songwriter movement in the GDR. However, it connects this historical basis also with today’s song culture and social movements. As the successor of the former Festival of Political Song (Festival des Politischen Liedes) it organises since 2000 every February the Festival Music and Politics (Musik und Politik). The non-profit organisation and its archive can be reached under PO Box 180154, 10205 Berlin.
