Solo Exhibition

»Allies in Berlin – The architectural heritage«

Mila Hacke

Exhibition now closed, but roundtable discussion, new digital exhibition, film screenings & travelling exhibition, please see below!

The exhibition presents large-format photographs of the Allies’ post-war buildings, highlighting architectural icons and unknown gems. These include cultural institutions, schools, and sports facilities as well as churches in barracks and housing estates. Some of the buildings are threatened with demolition. Also on view are the former headquarters and the Berlin Air Safety Centre of the four-power administration and the Kommandatura (command post) and airports of the Western Allies. The venture is, therefore, to view the Allies’ architectural legacy through today’s eyes.

Mila Hacke has been exploring the architecture and architectural history of post-war modernism and of the Allied presence in Berlin for many years. Her architectural photos were shown in the exhibitions ‘Revisited – Allied Sites in Berlin’ in the Allied Museum (2010–11) and ‘Gifts of the Americans’ in Amerika Haus (2009).

The opening marks the 70th anniversary of the Liberty Bell, which was inaugurated on October 24, 1950, in Rathaus Schöneberg, and heralded German Reunification on October 3, 1990 – on which occasion the ringing was broadcast live to the Reichstag (parliament building).

(held in German)
»Kulturinstitutionen im Gespräch – Russisches Haus, Institut Français, British Council, Amerikahaus München«
Admission free, registration required: urania.de/alliierte-berlin

Die Kulturinstitute der Vier Siegermächte haben das Berliner und generell das deutsche Kulturleben bereichert. Ihre Bedeutung hat sich im Laufe der 30 Jahre deutscher Einheit verändert; die Stadt ist um ein Vielfaches reicher an internationalen Kulturinstitutionen. Begleitend zur Fotoausstellung „Alliierte in Berlin – das Architekturerbe“ diskutieren Vertreter dieser Häuser über ihre Arbeit im Rückblick auf die besondere Rolle in Berlin, die Überwindung des Kalten Kriegs und den politischen Wechsel 1990. Können Sprach-, Wissenschafts- und diplomatischer Austausch eine Grundlage sein, ein gemeinsames Verständnis von kultureller Zukunft zu garantieren?
Moderation: Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Krieger, Philipps-Universität Marburg
ReferentInnen:
Pavel Izvolsky, Leiter Russisches Haus der Wissenschaft und Kultur,
Dr. Meike Zwingenberger, Geschäftsführerin Amerikahaus München,
Cyril Blondel, Botschaftsrat, Leiter Institut Français Deutschland,
