Eye-to-eye introduction by Meenakshi Shedde, film curator and journalist, India

How did the revered Indian god Ganesh come to have an elephant’s head? The film tells about Ganesh’s childhood in the Hindu pantheon. He owes his intelligence to his elephant head, which makes him, even though a child, superior to some stubborn adults. His adventures are retold, many of which he encounters in company of his vahana, a mouse on which he rides and which takes him everywhere. Plus, of course, his weakness for sweet things.

Practical info

  • Contact tracing

    For the protection of our visitors, and to allow for the rapid tracing of possible chains of infection, the partners of the Humboldt Forum are required to keep records of attendance for tours and events. This means your contact details will be recorded when attending a guided tour or event. At the beginning of each tour or event, you will be given a contact form on which to record your information. Your personal information will be used only for official contact tracing purposes and will be deleted automatically after four weeks.

  • “3G” regulation

    You may only participate in a tour, workshop or indoor event at this time if you can supply a negative test, have been fully vaccinated or have proof of having recovered from Covid-19 (3G). Children aged five or under are not required to present a negative test result. Please bring a personal identification document with you along with one of the following pieces of evidence.

    Students who attend schools (in the sense of the Berlin School Law), including adult education institutions [Zweiter Bildungsweg] should present their school ID card or BVG card as identification.

    No rapid testing facilities are available on site. A summary of test centres in Berlin can be found at www.test-to-go.berlin. 

  • “3G” evidence

    The following pieces of evidence are accepted:

    A recent negative test result registered in your name, on paper or in digital form. PCR tests must have been taken no more than 48 hours before arrival. Rapid antigen tests must have been taken under supervision no more than 24 hours before arrival. Please be aware that self-tests are not acceptable.

    A digital vaccination certificate or your vaccine passport to prove you have been fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved for use in the EU. The second vaccination must have been administered at least 14 days prior to your visit.

    If you have recovered from a Covid-19 infection, you should bring proof of a positive PCR test. This evidence must be no less than 28 days old and no more than six months old. If you recovered more than six months ago, you must also present proof that you have been vaccinated with a vaccine approved for use in the EU at least 14 days before arrival.

  • Face coverings

    With the exception of children under 6, deaf people and their accompanying persons, all visitors are required to wear a medical face mask, FFP2 or KN95 mask in all indoor areas of the Humboldt Forum. Please bring your own face mask with you. If wearing a mask is not possible due to health restrictions (e.g. asthma, severe lung diseases, etc.), a doctor’s certificate must be carried and shown. In this case, we point out the increased risk of infection for you.
