The corona pandemic makes us miss out on emotional and social moments. Ergül Cengiz symbolically celebrates weddings that could not be celebrated in public space.

Live bands play at three different locations in Hasenbergl in July 2021. The Unterbiberger Hofmusik, Lucile and the Rakibuam and Oansno play wedding music from different cultures and invite the local residents to share beautiful moments together.

The mobile stage is decorated with white tulle to match the occasion. In advance, Ergül Cengiz found out at the registry office how many couples got married during the pandemic. This number is attached to the stage and supplemented with the words “geheiratet – ungefeiert” (“got married – uncelebrated”) in different languages.

Ergül Cengiz, born in 1975 in Moosburg a. d. Isar, lives and works in Munich.
