Making Peace

MAKING PEACE

Exhibition extended until 25.4.21

Striving to create lasting peace, many civilian professionals nowadays work in crisis-hit regions. Their committment takes centre stage in this exhibition, which discusses the policy of civil peace building: Should we get involved in other nations' and societies' conflicts in the first place? What might an intervention possibly look like? Who defines  its success? What is peace, anyway? And can we really create peace?

An exhibition by the Federal Agency for Civic Education/bpb.

Pack of Lies

Pack of Lies – A Children's Exhibition

4.12.21–24.4.22

I don't believe it! That can't be true! "Pack of Lies" is an exhibition for lie artists and fact finders, for fantasists and discoverers, for cheating experts and detectives. Lies and deception play an obvious role in everyday life. Everyone has been deceived at some time or misled someone themselves: for fun, out of politeness, out of necessity ... The reasons are different.

Tiny Courtyard House

What constitutes modern living? For the city’s tricentennial, Ludwigsburg has announced an architectural competition. A tiny courtyard house has been built on a green area next to the busy Stern-junction. Here, architects Hans-Christian Bäcker, Florian Kaiser and Guobin Shen show how an inhospitable place can be reclaimed as living space.

LUDWIGSBURG – A PLANNED CITY

Ludwigsburg is a young city. It did not grow organically over centuries, but was designed at the drawing table.

Discover how the Dukes of Württemberg imagined their ideal city 300 years ago and what happened to their plans. The exhibition presents ideas and visions, the people who created the city, and the problems that arose in the process. Ludwigsburg’s changing role as a garrison town, a cultural center, and a prosperous business location is examined and illustrated by unique objects that tell stories of the city and its inhabitants.
