RECOMMENDATIONS CULTURE TIPS WELCOME TO THE 1920S Berlin Berlin - The Golden 20s Show. The world premiere of this Roaring Twenties romp will take place at the Admiralspalast on 17 December 2019. Freedom, life and lust will fill the air as audiences are invited to watch as sequin dresses glitter in the night and entrancing melodies prompt unbridled dancing and an erotic blurring of boundaries. “Berlin Berlin” will give audiences a glimpse into the ecstatic spirit that made Berlin the “capital of vice” back then and today. Join style icon Marlene Dietrich, the Comedian Harmonists singers, entertainer Josephine Baker and many more for a dance on the volcano.

MANDELA: THE OFFICIAL EXHIBITION Freedom is neither black nor white: the interactive exhibition “Mandela: The Official Exhibition” celebrates the life of South African activist and politician Nelson Mandela (1918-2013). A winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Mandela is a towering figure in the struggle for freedom and social justice, not only in his home country. His efforts paved the way for the mostly peaceful crossover from an Apartheid-based system to a democratic state in South Africa. With the help of many artifacts, films and photos, this temporary exhibition portrays the life of this inspiring icon on a space of over 700 square meters. It will be on display until 15 March 2020 at Bikini Berlin. RAFFAEL IN BERLIN 2020 will mark the 500th anniversary of the death of the Italian Renaissance painter Raphael. In celebration of this anniversary, the Gemäldegalerie Berlin will host a great “meeting of the Madonnas” exhibition from 13 December 2019 to 26 April 2020. This special Berlin presentation will examine a number of aspects of the painter’s life and work: the “young Raphael” who was in such great demand at the founding of the first museum in Berlin in 1830; the artist elevated and celebrated extensively by Prussia throughout the 19th century; and the timeless creator of images of consummate beauty and harmony.
