The multiplicity of voices inherent in the Humboldt Forum’s programme is reflected in its institutional collaborations. The Humboldt Forum represents a pioneering partnership between four experienced partners from the cultural and academic field.
What we are
The Humboldt Forum is taking shape in the historical heart of Berlin as a unique place of inquiry and encounters. A place with a significant past. A place for the arts and sciences, for exchange, diversity and a multiplicity of voices. A place where differences come together.
More than a museum
The outstanding collections that have been assembled under one roof and the varied programme of exhibitions, events and educational and digital offerings inspire visitors to gain new insights into the world of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Who we are
One house, four partners – the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz with the Ethnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin, the Stadtmuseum Berlin together with Kulturprojekte Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and theStiftung Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss are working together on developing this pioneering model.
Mutual understanding and Mission Statement
A joint statement by its partners defines the mutual understanding and goals of the Humboldt Forum. Developed by employees of all partners, the mission statement with its five guiding principles serves as an orientation for the joint work on this unique project.
The general director determines the overall concept and the basic curatorial orientation of the Humboldt Forum. All partners exchange views about the programme’s orientation in a permanent management conference, in which all partners are represented.
Books and catalogs accompany the future programme of the Humboldt Forum, take up current debates and address topics such as architecture, reconstruction, the history of the site and (post)colonial questions.
