A modernist experiment
14 Oct 2018 to 2 June 2019, Focke Museum
The period between the German Revolution of 1918 and the end of the Weimar Republic is brought to life in the broad-ranging exhibition 'A modernist experiment – Bremen after 1918' at the Focke Museum.
During these years, Bremen was the scene of political upheaval and a centre for the revolutionary uprising. A socialist ‘soviet’ republic emerged in the aftermath. The exhibition provides a multi-faceted historical overview that also looks at the cultural and economic developments in Bremen in the 1920s and 1930s. The focus is on the social transformation processes in the city and the changes to everyday urban culture.
Spectacular contemporary objects and impressive installations immerse the visitor in an exciting and eventful period of history.
Younger visitors are also well catered for: children and young people aged eight and over can discover the exhibition in an exciting and creative way. They can solve puzzles, play games and get creative with the help of Frieda and Franz in the lovingly illustrated magazine (available for €1).
