What do the humpbacked bull Nandi, the eagle serpent Cuauhcoatl, a featherwork Madonna, the marble statue of Friedrich III, an old safe door and the preserved hand of a gorilla all have in common? They are all precursors to the exhibitions that will soon be on display in the Humboldt Forum, and are already being presented in various formats as collection highlights. To celebrate this, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin is presenting these highlight objects in prominent positions on the Museumsinsel Berlin and at the Kulturforum.
These ambassadors of the Museum für Asiatische Kunst and the Ethnologisches Museum can be found at eight locations across the host museums and galleries: in the Gemäldegalerie, the Neues Museum, the Altes Museum and the Pergamonmuseum.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of events which over six months will offer monthly insights into the diverse world of the Humboldt Forum, which is conceived of as a site of encounters and lively dialogue. The events programme will kick off with a discussion evening on 26.10.18 in the Pergamonmuseum, where Nandi will soon inhabit the Processional Way of Babylon. For more information about this and other events, go to the Humboldt Forum’s programme page. Due to limited capacity, we recommend that you register in advance.
