Brain matters – who would disagree? This month, we examine the Berliner brain: how it's affected by party drugs, how to take care of your mental health (psychotherapy in English anyone?) and how composers and medical researchers are translating brainwaves into music - and back! Speaking of brains and intelligence: Is AI going to outsmart us any time soon? If, with all that food for thought, you need an actual meal, our food writer tells you where to get sautéed Hirn and boiled cervelle!

Also in this issue: An overview of this month's festivals in film (DukuArts, One World Berlin Pornfilmfestival), stage (War or Peace – Crossroads of History), art (The European Month of Photography Berlin) and music (3hd), interviews with Konstantin Gropper aka Get Well Soon and Sebastian Koch, the star of new German blockbuster-to-be Never Look Away and much more!
