1813 – At the Battlefield near Leipzig

A tour through the painting “Declaration of Allied Victory” by Johann Peter Krafft

Deutsches Historisches Museum
Unter den Linden



For the 200th anniversary of the The Battle of Leipzig, Deutsches Historisches Museum Unter den Linden “sheds light on various aspects of this important European conflict by means of the painting “Declaration of Allied Victory after the Battle of Leipzig” by Johann Peter Krafft”.


As well as raising questions regarding the events protagonists and their motivations “the exhibition examines the immediate and long-term ramifications for Germany and Europe, which can be summarized in the events surrounding the Congress of Vienna, the redrawing of the territorial map, the disappointed hopes for national unity and the Age of Restoration.”




28 June 2013 to 6 October 2013

Bernd Eichinger – … alles Kino

Deutsche Kinemathek – Museum für Film und Fernsehen
Potsdamer Strasse


Cinephiles should scout out this temporary exhibition dedicated to the late German film producer Bernd Eichinger (1949–2011) at the always quite excellent Berlin Film Museum. Eichinger was the force behind pictures such as ‘Christiane F’, ‘The Baader Meinhof Complex’ and ‘Last Exit to Brooklyn’.




The exhibition “approaches Eichinger’s biography and his work from various perspectives: A dlogical table combines important events from his professional, private and public lives with objects, photographs and film clips.”

Hilma af Klint A Pioneer of Abstraction

Hamburger Bahnhof, Invalidenstrasse

Hamburger Bahnhof hosts the first “comprehensive survey of the creative work of Swedish female artist Hilma af Klint (1862-1944).” 200 pieces of the abstract artists work  are on display, including some never before exhibited.

On a fascinatingly Fortean side note we learn that Klint was a student of “theosophy and anthroposophy and gathered decisive impulses for her creative work as an artist from taking part in spiritualistic séances. Her oeuvre can be seen as an attempt to reach a deeper understanding of the world and human existence.”
