The basic principle for the permanent display will be to exhibit in three different types of rooms, in which German history will be presented within its European context and its regional diversity. From the 9th century to the present, the political, social, and economic aspects of German history will be depicted in reference to the history of Europe.</p> <p>The real core of these display spaces are the <i>period rooms</i>, in which visitors are walking through the epochs from the beginnings of German history up to the present. If they want to delve deeper into the chronologically arranged events and learn more about the history of their causes and effects, they can enter<i>intensive information rooms</i> for a more thorough review and reflection of the topics.</p> <p>The sweeping historical survey concentrates on focal points of German history, which correspond with the crucial developmental periods of European history. The seven stations are as follows: "around 1200", "around 1500", "around 1800", "around 1914", "around 1933", "around 1945", and "around 1989/90".</p> <p>The <i>topic rooms</i> offer a comparative look at the questions that crop up again and again in history, such as "The Relationship between the Sexes", "Changes in Work and Profession", or "Spirituality, Religion and the Church". In depicting social history and everyday life these rooms help to illustrate the development of different forms and structures of life.</p> Fri, 19 Oct 2012 00:58:06 +0000 FREIES MUSEUM BERLIN, Buelowstraße 90, 10783 Berlin, Germany <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm; line-height: 150%; widows: 0; orphans: 0; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Das Freie Museum Berlin ist der aktuellste Neuzugang der Berliner Museumslandschaft.

The building was erected in the mid-19th century as one of the first terminal stations of the rail system. In the early 20th century, the structure was converted into a museum of transport and construction. The station's architecture, its impressive Neoclassical façade, flanked by two towers, the grand industrial hall of the entrance area, and the wings of the cours d'honneur flanking the garden of the inner courtyard: all of these elements constitute special attractions for visitors to Berlin. Only the east wing, the so-called Kleihues Hall, was reconstructed in the style of a high vaulted grand gallery on the occasion of the 1996 reopening. <br /> <br /> Impressive from without by virtue of the façade's lucid historicist style, the building is rendered even more striking by an ingenious dichromatic installation, designed by American artist Dan Flavin, which bathes both the main façade loggia and the transitions leading to the wings of the cours d'honneur in blue and green neon light. Particularly at night, Flavin's last work (whose completion he unfortunately did not live to see) is visible from afar, and has come to be seen as the museum's trademark.</p> Tue, 06 Sep 2016 16:56:17 +0000 Haus am Kleistpark, Grunewaldstraße 6-7, 10823 Berlin, Germany Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:53:43 +0000 Haus am Waldsee, Argentinische Allee 30, 14163 Berlin, Germany <p>Haus am Waldsee - A Place for the Arts<br /><br />Since 1946, Haus am Waldsee is considered to be one of the foremost exhibition spaces for international contemporary art in Germany. Given the changes in the historical situation since 1989, the connections with the wider international art scene are getting closer and closer. Since the middle of the '90s the German capital has become one of the most exciting art centres as well as a magnet for creative people worldwide. Artists from all countries and continents as well as from other parts of Germany are moving to Berlin. Amongst these are not only visual artists, painters, sculptors, media specialists but also fashion and furniture designers, musicians and writers. They live and work in Berlin. To them Haus am Waldsee dedicates its attention.</p> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 08:14:18 +0000 Haus der Kulturen der Welt, John-Foster-Dulles-Allee 10, D-10557 Berlin, Germany <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>HKW is closed until the end of 2016 and is now out and about with projects in Berlin, Hamburg and Munich. | <a href="" target="_blank">More information...</a></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Haus der Kulturen der Welt is a place for international contemporary arts and a forum for current developments and discourse.

What kind of a future do we want to live in? How can we shape our world more intelligently, but also more poetically?</p> Wed, 17 Aug 2016 14:53:28 +0000 Kunstbibliothek (Art Library), Matthäikirchplatz 8, 10785 Berlin-Tiergarten, Germany <p>The Kunstbibliothek is one of the largest museum libraries dedicated to all facets of art history and cultural studies.

The Deutsche Bank KunstHalle stands for everything that characterizes this commitment: openness, internationality, and the pioneering spirit. It&rsquo;s also our declaration of allegiance to the art metropolis Berlin. Founded in 1997 as the Deutsche Guggenheim, Deutsche Bank ran the gallery space for 15 years together with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. The exhibition hall in Deutsche Bank&rsquo;s Berlin Head Office was established as a platform for international contemporary art; starting in April 2013, Deutsche Bank carries on with new priorities. <br /> The KunstHalle defines itself as a place of discovery &ndash; an institution that is as alive and in flux as the German capital itself. One focus of the three to four annual high-caliber exhibitions is on new artistic terrain and the phenomena of a globalized society. In the KunstHalle, the Deutsche Bank Collection can be experienced in a new way &ndash; in exhibitions conceived by artists and international guest curators. One highlight of the program is the presentation of Deutsche Bank&rsquo;s &ldquo;Artist of the Year,&rdquo; who is honored each year with a major solo exhibition. At the same time, the KunstHalle provides a forum for young talents on Berlin&rsquo;s international art scene, presenting them for the first time to a broad public.</p> Mon, 03 Nov 2014 16:51:53 +0000
