An exhibition of the German History Museum Curator: Dr. Monika Flacke The exhibition is an initial attempt to take a look at European art since 1945 without the usual ideological demarcation lines that came about with the Cold War. Twelve chapters will examine the different ways in which artists have dealt with the ideals of Enlightenment and the belief in universal human rights, freedom, equality and democracy. Selected works will be seen within the framework of the project as visual expressions of ideas and concepts that have the potential to change the world. The artworks come from almost all of the European countries – from Portugal to Russia, from Scotland to Albania and Greece. Thus the exhibition also taps into the art of often neglected regions of Europe and in this way overcomes the separation of art into East and West, North and South, which has been a common practice since the Cold War. National background of the artists, chronologies and artistic schools do not play a role.
