Voyages in the Library
150 Years of the Kunstbibliothek

21.09.2018 to 06.01.2019

To mark the institution’s 150th anniversary, the exhibition will be showcasing items from the Kunstbibliothek’s collections of graphic art, allowing visitors to embark on a fascinating and diverse panoramic ‘voyage’. Featuring around 200 exhibits, the selection ranges from the first printing of a book about a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, the Voyages Pittoresques of the 17th and 18th century, accounts of 19th century expeditions, photographs that straddle the divide between souvenir and documentary, travel posters, drawing books taken by architects on their travels, travel guides, through to 20th century multimedia installations. The exhibits all bear witness to the ongoing relevance of a theme that occupies the juncture between tourism, globalization, and discourses surrounding foreign cultures.
