Berlin Exhibition

Cities across the world are increasingly transforming themselves into various globalised centres. With a joint exhibition, Kulturprojekte Berlin and the Stadtmuseum Berlin will show that Berlin is part of the globalisation process that began long ago and is manifested in the ongoing transfer of people, things and ideas to and from Berlin. Divided into thematic areas such as Berlin images, revolution, fashion, migration, war, free spaces, borders, pleasure and world thought, the exhibition invites attendees to get to know the city all over again – with its historical, social and cultural fractures in the context of its global interconnectedness – and to connect it all with questions about one’s own experience.


The Berlin exhibition at the Humboldt Forum has been commissioned by the State of Berlin as a co-production between the non-profit Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH and the Stadtmuseum Berlin under the scholarly direction of chief cura-tor and museum director, Paul Spies.
