If you have acquired an interest in becoming a member of our association as result of our activities, publications, or tours, this is how to go about it: come by our office, or use our contact form to request an application for membership.
You may choose between being an “active” or “supporting” member. The difference relates to your ability and desire to be involved in our association’s activities. If you choose to be an active member, we make an effort to inform you of the possibilities to take part in our work groups, were you can help with preservation work or with our exhibitions, organizing special events and tours, etc. Additionally, active members have the possibility to help with the gathering of information and the writing of articles for our website and internal publication, the “Schattenwelt” (shadow world). Every member can contribute according to their interest and ability.
If you are not able to contribute actively, because you do not live in Berlin or have little spare time, a supporting membership provides you the possibility to assist our efforts and projects financially though your membership dues. Regardless of which form of membership you choose, you will receive the Schattenwelt, our regular journal, and our email newsletter – which informs about the association's projects and special events. Above all, you will have the possibility participate in our regular and/or members-only tours, in addition to other events (concerts, readings, etc.) for free.
Regardless of which type of membership, the yearly dues are 60 € or 36 € (for unemployed, pensioners and students). If you already know which workgroup you wish to take part in, you may note this in the membership form or simply explain where your interest lies. Should you have any other questions regarding becoming a member or anything else, feel free to contact us.
We look forward to your support!
