In this live performance the MXM duo challenge conventional stage boundaries by presenting contemporary compositions for piano and light that transform the performance space into a dynamic canvas.

5. Naganess - Perceptions of the self and the other - English Guided Tour
Through the exhibition "Naga Land: Voices from Northeast India," the Humboldt Forum directs attention to the Indian state of Nagaland, illuminating the lives of the Nagas – an encompassing term for over 30 distinct ethnic groups marked by cultural and linguistic variations, as well as differing self-perceptions. The exhibition explores the impact of colonialism, missionary endeavors, autonomy aspirations, and globalization on the contemporary self-image of the Nagas. The guided tour invites participants to scrutinize the construction of images, fostering understanding of how others perceive them and how they perceive themselves. More info.

TZOM - Eritrean Restaurant (⭐4/5)
This restaurant offers Eritrean cuisine, similar to Ethiopian dishes featuring a pancake-like base with various stews meant to be eaten with your hands. The menu includes both meat and vegetarian options, and the staff is friendly. The ambiance leans more towards a cafe feel than a traditional restaurant, and the prices are reasonable.
