Lively Forum of the Future

On Friday, 23 April 2021, the amended Federal Infection Protection Act came into force. As a result, the so-called emergency brake is now in effect in Berlin. From Saturday, 24 April 2021, all cultural institutions in Berlin will have to close, including Futurium. As the outdoor areas are also affected by the closure, the planned opening of the installation TRANSIT by Mona el Gammal is currently not possible. We are working on an alternative for visitors.

Digitally, of course, we are still there for you. You can find our digital events here. Or visit us on our social channels Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.

We will inform you here in good time about the date of the reopening.


The forum is the events area of Futurium. Through our events we give an impetus to getting discussions going with you about ways forward into a liveable future. At the centre of the programme lies Futurium’s guiding question, namely: “How do we want to live in the future?”

Everyone is welcome! Here you can have new experiences, get into conversations, and explore ways we can shape the future. These activities themselves happen in different ways – sometimes active, sometimes silent, sometimes noisy. The programme offers lots of participative formats to get you involved. It conveys in a tangible form the essence of topics from the field of science. And at those points where other formats reach their limits, the artistic engagement with future themes enables new approaches.

The forum is the place where people who wouldn’t normally encounter each other can get into conversation. It is also the place where a variety of possible answers, as well as different blueprints for the future, coexist.
