Beginning on August 28, 2014, the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta is proud to host a traveling exhibition on the restoration of the Berlin Palace, which will house the Humboldt Forum, a cultural center of national and international distinction right in the heart of Berlin.

What’s the exhibition all about?
It will introduce you to this significant building project and provide you with information on the architectural plans, as well as the concepts behind the cultural institutions and collections that will be housed and made accessible to the public as part of the Humboldt Forum. This includes the non-European collections on the history of science.

The exhibit will also focus on the concept of complementing the cultural treasures of Europe and the Middle East already on display in Berlin’s “Museum Island” with the collections of the Ethnological Museum and the Museum for Asian Art, both of which will also be housed in the Humboldt Forum. The aim of this exhibition  is to open up a dialogue of world cultures.

The exhibit will also outline the history of the building site, from the 15th century Elector’s Residence to the present. It will also feature a model of the newly restored Berlin Palace and plans for the construction of the Humboldt Forum.
