We cordially invite you to a final gathering in the presence of Emeka Ogboh including drinks and the conceptual craft beer Ámà, that the artist has developed together with the Berlin-based brewery BRLO as part of the installation. The Get-Together will take place on the Beba Summer Terrace and in the Gropius Hain on 29 June 2022 from 19:00 to 22:00 and there will be music by Emeka Ogboh from 20:00.

Until 3 July his art installation can be seen at the Gropius Bau’s vast atrium, which is freely accessible without an entry price, welcoming all visitors to the very center of the building. The work takes as a point of departure the “ámà”, or “village square” in Igbo. These sites are the physical and symbolic centers of life in Igbo society, spaces for gathering where ceremonies, entertainment, trade and every-day social exchange occur.
