The »Staatliches Institut für Musikforschung« (SIM) is a research institution for musicology with wide-reaching fields of activity. Situated in a building designed by Hans Scharoun at the ›Berlin Kulturforum‹ between the »Berliner Philharmonie« and the Sony-Center, the institute is a place of historical and theoretical reflection and at the same time a place where both music performance and its study are conveyed to a broad music-loving audience. For the latter purpose, the »Musikinstrumenten-Museum« (MIM) provides an ideal forum, hosting various events, from academic symposia to lecture recitals with Early Music performances on period instruments of the museum’s collection to interactive sound installations.

The »Staatliches Institut für Musikforschung« is an institution of the    Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz.
