Dear AoIR Community, it’s time for a dance. This year’s reception event will take you from debates of the digital age way back to the analog charm of the Golden Twenties. Once all over Berlin, the flair of Swing and Charleston parties is preserved in this 19th-century two-story Berlin ballroom. Choose between champagne and absinthe: This place sets the perfect atmosphere for cool drinks and hot talks reminiscing a world prior the internet – so don’t miss out on a place still hosting original dial-operated telephones connecting each of the tables in the venue. Friday, 7 October, doors open 6.30 pm.
