Since this week, the Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart and some of the houses at Kulturforum (Gemäldegalerie, Kupferstichkabinett and Kunstbibliothek) are open again. Hamburger Bahnhof is showing paintings by Baloise Art Prize winner Xinyi Cheng. The young artist from Wuhan portrays mostly male figures in intimate moments on spatially undefined surfaces. This gives rise to surreal compositions. Another award winner on show is Pauline Curnier Jardin, winner of the National Gallery Prize, whose video installation Fat to Ashes explores aspects of religiously and traditionally transmitted collective excess in a room-sized amphitheatre. The Kulturforum presents Claudia Skoda's revolutionary knitwear and fashion design of the 1970s. All exhibitions are only visitable after booking a time slot ticket and with a daily negative test result.

After numerous locations of the architect Werner Düttmann's public work could already be experienced as a city-wide open-air exhibition on the occasion of his 100th birthday on 6 March, the Brücke-Museum opens the associated anniversary exhibition on Saturday. The show offers a chronological overview of all of Düttmann's Berlin buildings and invites visitors to actively discover the buildings and the urban space. The presentation also pays tribute to the Brücke-Museum itself as a Düttmann building and exemplary space for art. For this purpose, an exhibition room will be restored to its historical state and selected masterpieces from the collection will be shown in their original hanging. Reserve your time slot with the Museumsdienst online or by phone on 030-247 49 888 (Mon–Fri 9–16, Sat/Sun 9–13). Visits are only possible with a daily negative test result. Opening hours 11–17, tickets 6/4 €.

How did our genes evolve? Prof. Dr. Johannes Krause, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, will take you on The Journey of Our Genes and answer this exciting question. The lecture is part of the series "Science in the Saurian Hall", organised by the Faculty of Life Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. This year, the otherwise quickly sold-out lectures will take place exclusively digitally. You can follow the livestream on Friday from 19:30 via YouTube, after which it will be available as a video. [In German.] If the lecture has whetted your appetite for natural history expeditions, you can use the weekend to take a walk with the free museum app Naturblick. The app allows you to identify plants and bird sounds! If it rains, you can take a virtual tour of the museum.
