The concert and talk format Songs & Lyrics by... presents musicians and their artistic influences. Each evening, one or two singer/songwriters or entire bands are invited to talk to journalist and musician Max Kühlem about their texts and work and present their favourite records. This creates an intimate space in which the audience can immerse themselves in the cosmos of artists who move on the threshold between music and literature. We will continue the well-known series in the new Oval Office in the 2018/2019 season.

The new edition of the series Songs & Lyrics by... presents strong songwriters from the Ruhr area: Lilou from Essen studied in the masterclass of the Pop-Akademie Mannheim and composition at the Folkwang University and writes songs, which let melancholy, inner dissension and unmissable rays of hope shine through. Pele Caster has recently become a bochum of choice, became famous with his band Astra Kid and looks at the theatre of the absurd of the modern world with the indie pop songs of his solo project.
