Berlin as part of a connected world

What to expect

Past, present and future: much of what happens in Berlin has an impact on the world. And much of what happens in the world affects Berlin. BERLIN GLOBAL, an exhibition on 4,000 square metres of space, shows how the city and its people are connected with the world. Located on the first floor above ground of the Humboldt Forum, the exhibition will present Berlin as part of a world that is interconnected in many different ways. It will show how the city, its people and the events it launched have changed the world. And conversely, how global events – both past and present – have affected Berlin.

On 4,000 square metres of space, the exhibition is a unique contemporary take on the city and its global interrelationships. The exhibition’s seven main rooms tell of Revolution, Free Space, Boundaries, Entertainment, War, Fashion and Interconnection. These aspects also feature in other metropolises, but in this combination they reflect the essence of the city. Rich in variety and full of surprises, the immersive installations and atmospheric presentations invite visitors into these realms and the underlying diversity of Berlin.
