Under the motto "Sounds of Berlin", a summery mix of culture, cocktails and music awaits you in two current special exhibitions.

With cool cocktails, the music of the jazz-dub-funk band Ask Gonzalo accompanies the pictures from the exhibitions “Berlin Contrasts (2004-2015)” and “MOTHERLAND”. In various guided tours or in exchange with a live speaker, you will learn exciting backgrounds and stories. And that's not all that we can offer you with our program on this long summer evening!
