Hanseatenweg

The Academy of Arts in Berlin was founded in 1696 and is one of Europe’s oldest cultural institutions. It is a place for artists to meet and for public discussions on art and cultural politics. Its archive is internationally valued as a place for research. Katharina Sieverding ushered in the age of large-format photo art in the 1960s, and to mark her receipt of the 2017 Käthe Kollwitz Prize, the Academy in Hanseatenweg is showing a comprehensive retrospective of her public work.

Anti-War Museum

Anti-War Museum

Following the trauma of the First World War, the pacifist Ernst Friedrich founded an anti-war museum in Berlin-Mitte. The museum was broken up by the Nazis in 1933 and re-opened in 1982 by Friedrich’s grandson Tommy Spree. It is a reminder of both world wars but also covers modern weapons and explains current crises. An air-raid bunker lets you feel what it was like to spend whole nights sheltering from bombs.
