Episode 43: 06.-13.07.2018

Volksbühne on the Humboldt Forum
The Museum Island / Prof. Dr. med. Klaus-Dieter Lehmann on the new centre of Berlin

The true center of Berlin is neither the seat of government nor the cities business centre, but a river island in the Spree where a number of great museums are housed. This distinguishes the capital of Berlin from metropolises such as Paris or London. The museum island reinforces this impression with the triangle of Humboldt University, the planned Humboldt Forum in the form of the former Imperial Palace. This concentration of works of art, unique archaeological works and contemplation, which is the Museum Island, arose from Prussia’s greatest defeat to Napoleon. The foundation bears the mark of the Prussian reformers, Freiherr vom Stein, Prince Hardenberg and brothers Alexander and Wilhelm von Humboldt. The Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation and Museum Island are the last surviving remnants of Prussia.
Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dieter Lehmann, President of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, future President of the Goethe-Institut, reports.
