Goethe is as relevant today as he has always been. That is evident from the exhibition at the Goethe National Museum in Weimar.
The exhibition, which portrays the writer's extraordinary life, presents Goethe as an embodiment of the modern age that was emerging around 1800. Eleven rooms illustrate the many sides to Goethe, reaching far beyond his literary achievements – from his political role as a statesman and his talent for drawing through to his botanical expertise. The exhibition draws on an unparalleled stock of priceless original artefacts.
