1989 - Global Histories

Theme days

19 February 09 - 22 February 09

1989 - GLOBAL HISTORIES – readings, talks, interviews, music, radio and an exhibition with international archive materials, photographs, films and magazines. 1989 was a decisive year in the history of the Twentieth Century. The opening of the Berlin Wall was not the only break with the past with international consequences: on every single continent, unforeseeable upheavals occurred whose impact is still felt today. Two decades on, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (founded in March 1989) examines the global significance of these events and developments.
