Art & Culture in Berlin
Dear musicians, dancers, artist managers, performance artists, actors, singers and colleagues – the art and culture sector in Berlin covers a wide range of professional fields.
Berlin has been considered the capital of art and culture since the 1920s. With three opera houses, 56 theatres, more than 600 galleries and 166 museums, the culture sector not only offers creative minds career opportunities, but also jobs for commercial personnel, lawyers, HR managers and more.
The off-scene with its many open stages for cabaret and readings as well as the commercial and non-commercial, temporary music, dance and art productions are important starting points for your job search within this industry.
Music has left a lasting mark on Berlin’s culture. The Berlin techno scene in particular, which emerged in the early 90s, continues to dominate the vibe of the city and still attracts rave tourists from all over Europe to Berlin every weekend.
There are, however, many other companies active in the music industry beyond the club scene. Whether music retailers, music production or artist management – small businesses as well as large market leaders, such as the two major labels Sony Music and Universal Music, have set up their German headquarters in Berlin.
