In 2022, the annual theme was "Métamorphose II: Freiheit - Liberté". The artists there dealt with the process of change: they asked the question of where the freedom can come from to follow a new path that combines social upheavals with the protection of the environment, nature and human dignity, peace and security. A special highlight of the arabesques cultural festival was the concert by the Ensemble arabesques with Ariel Zuckermann at the Elbphilharmonie.
