At the end of 2015, the Museum of Islamic Art Berlin started the project "Multaka: Museum as Meeting Point – Refugees as Guides in Berlin Museums". In cooperation with three partner museums, Multaka trains refugees and immigrants with Syrian or Iraqi backgrounds as museum mediators, to develop and lead tours for other refugees and visitors in Arabic language. (more about, see below)

In this Special Feature, twelve "Multakis" introduce exhibits, which are personally significant to them, and explain the related topics that they talk about in their guided tours.
