Abguss-Sammlung Antiker Plastik Berlin
Fri 1 April 1988 - until further notice
The Plaster Cast Collection of Ancient Sculpture contains roughly 2000 plaster casts of ancient Greek and Roman sculptures. It is used for teaching and research at the university and also serves as a museum with the aim of making ancient sculptures accessible to a wide audience.
The exhibition allows visitors to gain a comprehensive overview of the history of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture. It includes works ranging from the Cycladic period in the 3rd millennium BC to the Geometric and Archaic period, and sculptures from the Classical and Hellenistic periods to the time of the Roman and Byzantine empires around 500 AD. The collection is supplemented by a selection of works from other ancient Mediterranean cultures.
In addition, numerous special exhibitions on modern art and photography, music and theatrical performances, as well as readings and presentations, provide a variety of perspectives on classical antiquity.
