What’s on, November / December

This is partly for my own use, as I’m an expert at missing things.  I’ll try to do one of these at least once a month, with a permalink in the right hand column.

Not an exhaustive list by any means, so please get in touch if you’ve seen anything good, or are promoting it.  Links are to English versions where available.

On at the moment in Berlin:

Mythos Germania exhibition – Hitler & Speer’s megalomaniac plans to build a new german capital after winning the war. In German only.

Shrinking Cities exhibition – the last stop on a world wide tour, this major research project looks at the phenomenon of western cities losing population (more interesting than this sounds!) using artists, architects and research to add differing perspectives.
