Humboldt Forum Hightlights

October 25, 2018 - May 8, 2019

What do lacquer and breakdance have to do with the intricately designed featherwork picture of a Madonna? What connects processions, pilgrims and parades with the South Indian humped bull Nandi? Why are elephants, gorillas and bees also moving into the Humboldt Forum? These questions and many more will be addressed by international experts, eye witnesses and representatives from the Humboldt Forum in various conversations.

Starting with a selection of the Humboldt Forum Highlights, in a total of eight events they will weave exciting stories and histories from different cultures and epochs, current research results and personal experiences to create surprising and sometimes astounding narratives. Once a month for half a year or more there will be new insights into the multifaceted thematic world of the Humboldt Forum as a place for lively exchange.
