Together with the historian and director of the Berlin Sports Museum, Veronika Springmann, we take a look at the history of the origins of sport for people with disabilities at BERLIN GLOBAL. In doing so, Springmann explains the context of sporting activities as a treatment option for soldiers with war injuries after the two world wars in both the FRG and the GDR. She looks at the inner-city significance of the Berlin Sports Palace, built in 1910 and demolished in 1973, and talks to participants about the topics of ability, disability and inclusive sport.

The Format:

The tandem guided tour involves two people. An educator and a Berlin expert guide you through selected exhibition areas. The invited expert determines the subject matter. The experts will bring their own varied professional and personal backgrounds into the conversation and they may be a midwife, artist, small-scale female entrepreneur, biologist, historian, archaeologist, psychologist, female fire fighter or restorer. People who work as volunteers or who have provided curatorial support in the exhibition will also be invited. This makes every tandem guided tour individual and unique.

This offer is part of the cultural programme of the Special Olympics World Games Berlin 2023.

With a Special Olympics accreditation, you will receive free admission to the BERLIN GLOBAL exhibition from 10 to 25 June.
