Couchgespräche

Die Reihe „Couchgespräche” gibt die Bühne frei für Künstlerinnen und Künstler von Weltklasse, die sich in der deutsch-israelischen Kulturlandschaft bewegen und einen Namen gemacht haben. In kleinem Kreis berichten sie von ihrem persönlichen Werdegang, den Herausforderungen und auch der Unterstützung, die sie auf diesem Weg erfahren haben, und den Besonderheiten, die ein kreatives Leben zwischen Deutschland und Israel mit sich bringt.

Die Sitzplätze sind begrenzt – halten Sie die Augen auf, wann das nächste Couchgespräch stattfindet. Wir freuen uns auf Sie und auf spannende Unterhaltungen!

Nächstes Couchgespräch

On the 24.10.2019 we had the great pleasure of welcoming Avi Avital to our first „Couchgespräch“ in Berlin.
Our charming guest told us about his passion for the mandolin, how he brought his instrument into the arena of classical music, and his experience of living and working in Israel and Germany – two places he calls home. Avi also brought his mandolin along and played three beautiful pieces of music. All this in an informal setting, with an option for everyone to ask questions and talk to Avi personally. Thank you to Avi Avital and Alexandra Nocke, our host, for the wonderful evening!
