Holiday Communism

What suits a Russian camera better than a few days of holiday communism? Join me as I celebrate in Germany a festival of tolerance and homogeneity. All people from all walks of life, with different tastes and interests, flock here to have the time of their life!

What is holiday communism? Its s temporal parallel-society, free of necessities and controls.
At least that’s what the organizers have in mind for the annual Fusion-Festival which is coined by the spirit of tolerance and should be free of sponsorships, advertisements and political intentions.

The festival, which was originally held in a small manner in 2003 on a former military airbase in Lärz (near Röbel/Müritz), has become a massive event with more than 50.000 people attending. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Punk, Raver, Rastafari, Goafan, Indie or Rocker – almost every imaginable (sub) – culture is present, which can also be noticed when looking at the Line Up.

The festival is brilliant not only in musical terms: there are loads of spacious and bizarre motives for the Lomographer’s desire. From the vehicles that remind you of the Mad Max-films and the colorful decoration to the partying masses – the sensations have been overwhelming each year.

To my mind the holiday communism is a perfect mix of cabaret, rave, carnival, live concerts, cinema and apocalyptic sentiment – as if only those of us survived the nuclear war who partied the hardest.
