Humble – self-aware, contrite, modest, poor, down-to-earth: Humble has many meanings but they all revolve around one central idea – it's the opposite of showy and ostentatious. Showy ostentation however might be the very core of today's culture – whether its influencers showing off their lifestyles, politicians showing off their nuclear arsenals, or industries paying extravagant bonuses while causing massive greenhouse emissions. Humble, it seems, is out of fashion.

“Who in all the world comes to Berlin voluntarily?” Joseph Roth’s question in THE WANDERING JEW (1927) asks us to consider the routes we take to end up in Berlin. His suggestion that there is something that drives people here is not only true of the refugee Jews from Eastern Europe then, but also characterizes the timeless situation of migrants and expats in Germany’s capital. Today Roth might be best known for his novels of the Habsburg Empire like RADETSKY MARCH (1932) and HOTEL SAVOY (1924). However, it was in Berlin where, chronicling the city’s diversity, with special attention to the marginalized, that he became a feuilletonist.

UNVEILING IRAN: VOICES FROM AFAR offers a platform for Iranians, Iranian Germans, and Iran-lovers to get on stage and express their dreams and desires for home.
The evening will feature live music by Ansan, a group of musicians from Iran, Israel, India, and the US, dedicated to peaceful living through music. Their fusion sound links Persian poetry to modern Western genres like jazz and blues and sets the tone for the culture of mixing and mingling that is Iran’s particular strength. Poets and writers with Iranian roots and those who have something to say about Iran will perform their work in Persian and English, telling stories of beauty, loss, belonging, longing.
