1000 Handkerchiefs to Never Forget

03.03.2017 to 02.07.2017
Museum Europäischer Kulturen

An exhibition by the Museum Europäischer Kulturen – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, in cooperation with the ÜberBRÜCKEN Foundation, Berlin

The Roll of Remembrance, a project of the Berliner Verein südost Europa Kultur e.V. (Berlin Association for South-East European Culture), commemorates people killed since 1991 in wars in the former Yugoslavia. Refugee women who had lost relatives, friends, and neighbours join with women from other countries in embroidering handkerchiefs with the names and birth and death dates of the dead, decorating each one individually. The artist Anna Brägger has assembled these cloths into large swaths of material. This exhibition accompanies the presentation daHEIM: Glances into Fugitive Lives.

As of February 2017, visitors to the MEK can take advantage of a new, free educational offer. Every Sunday from 12:00 to 17:00 visitors have the opportunity to personally discuss the objects and exhibitions on show with the museum's Live Speakers, who are there to share their knowledge on the exhibitions' topics. The Live Speakers can react to the particular interests of each visitor and thus help make each exhibition visit an individual experience.
