Chaos & Departure - Berlin 1920 | 2020

Overnight in 1920, the population of Berlin doubled. By incorporation of neighboring, until then independent cities and municipalities, the second largest city in the world was created in terms of area. For this reason, the Märkisches Museum is presenting a comprehensive special exhibition from April 2020 onwards.

Address
Märkisches Museum

Am Köllnischen Park 5 10179  Berlin


Looking at the past and the present of Berlin, she explores the question of how a chaotic upheaval can be used to shape a constructive departure.

On 1 October 1920, 27 Gutsbezirke, 59 rural communities and the seven previously independent cities Charlottenburg, Köpenick, Lichtenberg, Neukölln, Schöneberg, Spandau and Wilmersdorf were incorporated into Berlin by the "Greater Berlin Act". In one fell swoop, Berlin became a cosmopolitan city. The local government has set accents in many public areas, which are still one of the foundations of urban infrastructure. The Greater Berlin Act was thus the basis for the city of today - for the metropolis of Berlin.

A historical and a current temporal level invite to an expedition in the exhibition, which leads from the problems of the city over solution approaches to their future potential. It is about living, transport, recreation, administration, the connection to the surrounding area and also to identity. The exhibition is also part of a cooperation project with the twelve Berlin district museums.

Accompanied by an extensive program.
