Presentation of the graphic collection

Bridges, monuments, costume jewelry... Using graphics and original objects from the 19th century, we take you to the beginnings of industrialization.

Without iron, Berlin would never have been able to develop into the metropolis it is today. At the beginning of the 19th century, the Royal Prussian Iron Foundry laid the foundation for this with its products. Numerous motifs in the graphic collection of the Berlin City Museum illustrate this development. Together with over a thousand objects from the Eisenkunstguss Collection, these sheets are the subject of a current digitization project at the Berlin City Museum.

Andreas Teltow, head of the graphic collection, and Elisabeth Bartel, head of the iron art casting collection, are looking for clues together. They show familiar-looking but also surprising motifs as well as some original iron objects.
