{Germany} [Probe]Räume at the Märkisches Museum in Berlin

June 19, 2017


Last month, I was invited by the Stadtmuseum Berlin to the launch of their new exhibition [Probe]Räume at the Märkisches Museum. The museum is preparing to go through a redevelopment, with expected closures from 2020 onwards, and is using the time in the run up to that to experiment with new formats – [Probe]Räume literally means [Rehearsal]Rooms. The exhibition, on the second floor of the museum, revisits the founding principles of the museum of collecting, researching and curating, and reinterprets them for the present day, making […]

{Germany} Be a knight, do it right!

November 4, 2013


I mentioned on Friday that there was a whole host of museum family festivals taking place in Berlin at the weekend. Since the boy has recently discovered the wonders of “Mike the Knight” – giving poor old Postman Pat a run for his money – we opted for the Family Day at the Märkisches Museum, with its knights, knaves & damsels theme. The museum tells the story of Berlin through a series of themed rooms and exhibitions, giving an insight in to the life, work […]
