We will be discussing the exhibition Neolithische Kindheit at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt. Make sure you see this exhibition before we meet! It is a dense show, and your ticket will allow you to attend twice in case you need extra time to take it in. There is a reduced price of 6 EUR for students and free admittance on Mondays.
