New Neighbours. On the Way to Humboldt Forum

14.06.2017 until further notice
Museumsinsel Berlin

Visitors will still be able to see highlights from the Museum für Asiatische Kunst and the Ethnologisches Museum while the collections are being moved to the Humboldt Forum. On the Way to the Humboldt Forum is the overall title for numerous special exhibitions and presentations taking place at the Kulturforum and the Museumsinsel Berlin between now and spring 2019. Their shared aim is to initiate dialogue between the SMB’s European and non-European collections.

At the heart of the project is a series entitled New Neighbours, involving over 14 objects from the Ethnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst. Conceived as a series of pop-up displays in the Altes Museum and Neues Museum, it explores all sorts of ways of introducing completely different eras, regions, themes and histories to one another. It will give visitors a thematic foretaste of the unique synergy between the Museumsinsel and the Humboldt Forum which will create a multi-perspectival meeting-place for world cultures in the heart of Berlin.
