Express Tours
What is Exilmuseum?
A quick overview over the planned Exilmuseum. What will it look like? Where will it be located? And what’s it all about?
Starting times: every hour from 6:30–11:30 pm, duration 15 minutes; at 9:30 pm IN ENGLISH

“I Will Never Again See the Country I Came From”: Songs from the 1920s and 1930s
Kurt Tucholsky, Bertolt Brecht, Kurt Weill, Friedrich Hollaender, Gerda Kohlmey: they were all prominent figures in Berlin cultural life. But then the Nazis came to power. Those who thought—or sang—differently were systematically driven from the country and fled to an uncertain exile.
The actress and politician Anne Helm sings a homage to the musicians of a time in which political songs became a place of inner freedom. Her program will include selections from The Threepenny Opera, cabaret songs from the Weimar period, anti-fascist songs, and Hanns Eisler’s painful words about exile: “And I will never again see the country I came from again.”
Starting times: 8 pm, 10 pm, duration 20 minutes

Join in!
Paste, cut, paint or just listen: at the lab, you can engage creatively with exile poems and song texts and take your work home with you.
From 6pm–midnight

Music and Bar
Swing, Jazz and Drinks
And in the evening, things get in the swing! Simon Petre, known in the Berlin swing dance community as DJ Owl Bowlly, lets the golden twenties come back: from Billie Holiday, Irving Berlin, to the Comedian Harmonists. Werkstatt Exilmuseum becomes a swing joint, come in and have a dance!
