    “Crawlers & Scuttlers – The Wonderful World of Insects”
    Wednesday, August 21, 7 pm
    Michael Quast, Fliegende Volksbühne, and Olaf Pyras, Percussion

    We detest and mystify them. They produce poison, cooperate in highly complex societies, or kill their closest relatives. More than 80 percent of all species on earth are insects. Could all that soon be over? – Michael Quast takes a poetic approach to this catastrophe, reciting texts by the insect researcher Jean-Henri Fabre and poems by Goethe, Heine, Morgenstern & Co. He is joined by the percussionist Olaf Pyras, a specialist in New Music and sound experiments of all kinds. (In German.)

    Bees and Booty
    Wednesday, August 28, 7 pm
    With Andreas Kramer, Organic Beekeeper


    Bees are in a sorry state. Especially the wild bee species are threatened with extinction. Yet butterflies, wasps and bumblebees are also endangered. Which conditions are necessary for bees, bumblebees and their relatives to feel at home in their natural habitat again, so that fruit and vegetables do not have to be pollinated by human hands, as is already the case in China? Andreas Kramer offers insights into the workings of his Bioland beekeeping business, explaining what we can do to counteract the dying of insects.
    Weather permitting, the lecture will take place in the Palace Gardens.
    Fee: 9 €

    “Of Bees and Humans” – A Journey to Europe’s Beekeepers
    Wednesday, September 11, 7 pm

    How people treat bees is a seismograph for the state of our world. But who are the beekeepers? – Ulla Lachauer has travelled many regions in Europe, speaking to beekeepers. Her explorations range from the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea to the Pyrenees and the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad. Her book assembles 14 portraits of passionate beekeepers. In conversation, she talks about her journeys and about the question: “What can a beekeeper tell us about nature and society?”

    "The History of Bees" by Maja Lunde
    Wednesday, October 9, 7 pm
    Literary conversation with the literary expert Sylvia Schwab

    The History of Bees by Maja Lunde caused an international stir, a novel which crosses centuries to ask the question: what is behind the secret of the bees – and what would we be without them? The action begins in England in 1852, moving to the USA of 2007 and China in 2098. In China, trees have long been pollinated by hand. Read the acclaimed novel in parallel with the exhibition and reflect upon it in a relaxed atmosphere with a glass of wine together with the literary expert Sylvia Schwab. (In German.)
