Take a tour through Berlin’s newest and most exciting cultural institution.
The 2020 opening of the Humboldt Forum heralds a massive achievement in cultural understanding. Bringing together more than 20,000 objects and designed to offer diverse exhibitions, events, and venues, this enormous complex will use state-of-the-art technology to foster learning, research, and communication. This opulent coffee-table book reflects the Forum’s achievement with photographs, drawings, blueprints, and interviews with key figures. Highlights of the Forum’s collection, which spans epochs and continents, and tours of the galleries, restaurants, theaters, and public gathering spaces allow readers to experience not just the physical building, but also its commendable goal—to explore our world with open eyes and understand it as an interwoven system of nature and culture.
