Russians & Germans
1000 Years of Art, History and Culture

from: 06.10.2012 to: 13.01.2013
Neues Museum

For the first time a major exhibition is being held that will highlight the historical depth and diversity of common ties between Russians and Germans. In the exhibition, an arch will be formed telling the story of these two countries' ties, starting with the period of initial contact and intense trade links in the Middle Ages, moving on to the age of lively, dynamic interaction in the 18th and 19th century, through to the fundamental breaks and successful fresh starts in the 20th century.

Visitors to the exhibition will discover German 'footsteps' in Russian history and Russian 'footsteps' in German history. The magnificent exhibits, many of which have never gone on show before, taken from major museums and archives in both countries will be joined by international loans. Together they will illustrate the richness of mutual contacts between these two countries, past and present.

The exhibition project has been developed by key cultural bodies in both countries: the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and the State Historical Museum in Moscow and, on the German side, the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, with particular involvement from its Museum of Prehistory and Early History. The project is supported by the governments of both countries and promoted by the Petersburger Dialog, a discussion forum set up to foster cultural ties between the two countries.
