As part of the American Academy's public program, each week we offer public lectures, concerts, screenings, or readings by Academy fellows, distinguished visitors, and special guests. Most evening lectures take place at the Hans Arnhold Center, but the Academy also partners with a handful of cultural institutions in Berlin for special events: Radialsytem V, the JFK Institut of the Freie Universität Berlin, Kino Babylon, the United States Embassy, and the Hertie School of Governance.

If you would like to attend an event, please register online, or send an email to Seating is limited, so please register well in advance of the lecture or event you would like to attend. We look forward to welcoming you at the Hans Arnhold Center.

Program Resumes in September

The spring 2014 semester at the American Academy in Berlin concluded on the evening of June 5, ending a tremendous season of lectures and presentations by our fellows and distinguished visitors. The Academy's public program will begin again in September, when the fall 2014 Berlin Prize recipients take up residence at the Hans Arnhold Center. The traditional Fellows Presentation will take place in mid-September. Please check back this summer to learn of the fall 2014 program of talks, readings, screenings, lectures, and special events, including a smattering of events surrounding the Academy's twentieth anniversary.
