Information on 021 621 65 11.


Thursday 25 November: Museum Talk (in partnership with the Clinique de Montchoisi): Does the brain have a gender? Behind this question lies the fundamental issue of determining what is nature and what is nurture in human behaviour. As both a biological and a cultural organ, the brain, the seat of thinking, is an organ like no other. In this capacity, science and ideology are intimately linked. Men can only do one thing at a time and women have no sense of direction. Reality or brainwashing? This is the type of question that the speakers will try to answer. At 6.30 p.m., in the Museum Auditorium, free entrance.



Sunday 28 November: Sunday concert: Popular melodies. Czech mezzo-soprano Milena Bendikova, accompanied by guitarist Benjamin Bunch, offers a cameo of popular melodies by
Brahms, Mahler, Ravel, de Falla, Kurt Weill, Britten and Donizetti. At 11 a.m. in the Museum auditorium, tickets at the door. Information on 021 621 65 11.
