Monday, 3 February: 
TECHIE TALK: Montagskolloquium at the Deutsches Museum -  Technischer Fortschritt als Heilversprechen und seine selbstlosen Bürger. (1890 - 1970) Free, just turn up. Museumsinsel 1, Seminarraum der Institute, Raum 1402. 4pm - 5.30pm.

MUSIC: Hauskonzerte organise beautiful living-room style concerts around Munich. They usually pick a cozy location and make it even cozier by adding some carpets and shade-lamps, but you never know where the concert is going to take place in advance. This Monday they are hosting a gig by Sophie Jamieson from London. Tickets are usually between 6 and 8 euro. If you'd like to attend, send an e-mail to the organizers:

Tuesday, 4 February:
MUSIC: Munich's experimental DIY band Beißpony is playing at the Favoritenbar, Damenstiftstr. 12. I highly recommend watching them live, as Laura's traditional singer-songwriter-style piano playing and her beautiful voice work in perfect symbiosis with Steffi's performative and experimental usage of such weird musical instruments as a sewing machine, a type-writer, broken toys, etc. Starts at 8.30pm. Free entry!

Wednesday, 5 February:
ARTS: Diplomausstellung - final degree show at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, Akademiestr. 2. Over 100 pieces of fine arts, graphics, ceramics, photography, sculpture, media art, etc. Runs from Wednesday, February 5 until Sunday, February 9. Open from 4pm to 8pm during weekdays, and from 2pm to 8pm during weekend. Free entry, just turn up!

Thursday, 6 February:
BOOKS: The Munich Readery is the largest second-hand bookshop with books in English. They have a cool offer, which gives you free wifi if you buy a book, a comfy place to sit, and bring-your-own-food & cofe. Sounds like freelancers' heaven to us. This week they have a 25% discount on everything to celebrate their 8th anniversary. And they regularly host a verity of readings, creative writing and storytelling events. Augustenstr. 104 (U2, Theresienstr.).

Friday, 7 February:
MUSEUM: Villa Stuck have their Friday Late again - a unique opportunity to visit the museum after work AND for free! This time there will be a lecture in French on Monet's house and garden, as well as two guided tours through the exhibition "Im Tempel des Ichs" - Das Künstlerhaus als Gesamtkunstwerk starting at 8.30pm. From 6pm until 10pm. Free, just turn up!

Saturday, 8 February:
FLEA MARKET: If you haven't been to the Midnight Bazar yet, we definitely recommend a visit! An unusual flea market with live music, drinks and a good atmosphere. This month's location is the beautiful Postpalast (Maxvostadt). Entry 3€, starts at 5pm.

Funnily, there will also be another night flea market at the same time: Nachtkonsum at the Tonhalle, Kultfabrik am Ostbahnof. It also comes with live music, food & drinks. Entry 3€, from 5pm to 11pm.

Sunday, 9 February:
KIDS & ROBOTS: SPIELkultur is organising a series of events for kids called Reise nach Kartagonien - a full journey accompanied by stories, creative tasks, improv theatre and other exciting things, all themed by traveling around the globe. From January 12 until February 28, every Sunday from 2pm until 6pm. This Sunday's special is Anna's LEGO Mindstorms workshop on building and programming robots and sending them on an a Martian expedition.

Wish you an exciting week!
