THE BERLIN EXHIBITION AT THE HUMBOLDT FORUM: BERLIN IN AN INTERCONNECTED WORLD
The Berlin Exhibition BERLIN GLOBAL is based on the first floor above ground of the Humboldt Forum. On 4,000 square metres of space, the Stadtmuseum Berlin and Kulturprojekte Berlin explore the complex web of relationships between Berlin and the world. Immersive installations and atmospheric presentations lead visitors through theme-based rooms that reflect the many sides of Berlin. Proceeding from current questions, developments and challenges, the Berlin Exhibition examines selected topics to show the city as part of what has long been an interconnected world.
About BERLIN GLOBAL
AT A GLANCE: THE BERLIN EXHIBITION AT THE HUMBOLDT FORUM
Berlin has been closely interconnected with the world for centuries. The city, its people and the events it launched have changed the world. Conversely, global events – both past and present – have affected the city. What is Berlin contributing to the world? How are people connected with places and events around the globe? The exhibition does not provide a classical account of the city’s history but rather a contemporary take. Its theme-based rooms focus on selected aspects, the combination of which is uniquely characteristic of Berlin.
