Christmas tree ornaments still up?
Christmas is long since over and we are still inviting you to the upper floor of the Zeughaus to visit the exhibition “Angel, Swastika, Dome of the Rock”. At closer examination it becomes clear that the display is neither Christmassy sweet nor cute. It shows the degree to which these ornaments reflect political, economic, technical and educational history, and not least the zeitgeist. In this blog Regine Falkenberg, curator of the exhibition and head of the DHM everyday culture collection, introduces selected objects to us that show why a visit to the exhibition in January and February is still worthwhile, to say the very least.
