Volksbühne on the Humboldt Forum

A history of the world in 100 objects / Neil McGregor on a legendary exhibition at the British Museum London

A history of the world in 100 objects: this is the theme of a grandiose exhibition in London. Neil McGregor, former director of the British Museum, introduces these objects. Throughout history, rulers and the ruling peoples have immortalised themselves in written form. According to Neil McGregor, the aim of the exhibition is to give a voice to the voiceless in the world. Their voice consists of objects that can tell world history differently than how the epics have done.

A meeting with Neil McGregor and a legendary exhibition at the British Museum. World history in the shortest amount of time. Mirrored in objects, each of which is unique, each telling its own story.
