In addition to exhibition trailers and image films, the YouTube channel of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin also shows interesting video series highlighting the backgrounds of our objects and work in the museums, such as Lieblingsstücke (Favourite Pieces, museum staff at the Gemäldegalerie (Old Master Paintings) and the Bode-Museum discuss their personal favourite works of art, in German with English subtitles), as well as Hingeschaut and Alone in the Museum – all extra offers for #SMBforHome.
There are also interesting insights to be found in the talk series Netzwerk Museumsinsel and Schinkel: A View of Prussia’s Golden Age, Backstories (animated narratives about individual objects), Behind the Scenes (behind-the-scenes views of museum work), 360° tour through the Altes Museum. The three-part series of public restorations In Preparation sheds light on the preparations being made for the new building of the Nationalgalerie at the Kulturforum. Several venues of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin are also represented in the current series “Der rbb macht Museum”.
In cooperation with the Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester Berlin, a four-part video series was created in which works of art from the Bode-Museum are juxtaposed with musical pieces.
Thanks to a range of digital offers, our 15 collections can be accessed around the clock – and many of the museums can also be explored on a virtual tour outside their opening hours. Online offers are continuously being developed and enhanced with fascinating new subject matter.
