In philosophy, anamnesis is the idea that humans possess innate knowledge (perhaps acquired before birth) and that learning consists of rediscovering that knowledge within us.

A few weeks ago, Berlin saw a pretty intense heatwave that had a peak of 38°C. Like many Berliners, curator Jake attempted to escape the heat by heading to one of the city’s surrounding lakes (in his case Krumme Lanke). Though the heatwave passed, rising temperatures in recent weeks show that Europe won’t be cooling down anytime soon.
