March 1848: the people of Berlin demand reforms, the Prussian king in his palace fears revolution. 141 years later: While the GDR leadership celebrates the 40th anniversary of the founding of the state in the Palace of the Republic, people demonstrate for freedom and change in the streets and squares of East Berlin. The Humboldt Forum, which now stands where the palace and palace once stood, opens its doors on March 18-19 for the “Berlin Weekend for Democracy.” The program of events spans the period from 1848 and 1989 to the present, taking a fresh look at democracy movements in Germany.

The “Revolutionary Talks” explore the events of 1848 and 1989, in the puppet show “The Maids” the employees challenge the powerful, participants in the “Print Workshop” print political pamphlets, special guided tours create lines of reference and after the radio talk “One Hour of History” the foyer of the Humboldt Forum becomes a place of rebellious sounds with DJ Yuriy Gurzhy.


The Berlin Weekend for Democracy takes place as part of the nationwide anniversary programme “175 Years of Revolution 1848”. Kulturprojekte Berlin and more than 20 partners are organising a diverse programme and inviting visitors to exhibitions, talks, performances, interactive tours and artistic interventions throughout the capital. An overview of all partners and a calendar of events can be found at revolution-1848.de.
