Yesterday, today, tomorrow: much of what happens in Berlin has an impact on the world. And much of what happens in the world affects Berlin. BERLIN GLOBAL shows on 4,000 square meters in the Humboldt Forum how the city and its people are connected to the world.

Visitors start in a room called Thinking the World and move on to an introductory space entitled Berlin Images. Rooms with individual themes then follow: Revolution, Free Space, Boundaries, Entertainment, War, Fashion and Interconnection. These aspects also feature in other metropolises, but the constellation captures the essence of the city.

Explore the exhibition

Rich in variety and full of surprises, the immersive installations and atmospheric presentations invite visitors into these realms and the underlying diversity of Berlin. We let those who know the city speak: residents, experts, artists, initiatives and associations. Their stories, experiences and perspectives energise the exhibition.

Open Spaces

The concept

The Open Spaces are three areas of the exhibition BERLIN GLOBAL, which are played by initiatives, organizations and independent groups. The projects are selected by an independent jury and developed and implemented in cooperation with the Stadtmuseum Berlin. 


The Berlin Exhibition is a coproduction of Kulturprojekte Berlin and the Stadtmuseum Berlin. The concept and content of the exhibition were developed by a team led by the Chief Curator of the State of Berlin at the Humboldt Forum. Kulturprojekte Berlin was responsible for the overall management of the project including the exhibition production, communication and – together with the Stadtmuseum Berlin – for education, accessibility and inclusion.
