Pariser Platz 4. A hotspot of German history


The Akademie der Künste building at Pariser Platz reflects recent German history in a unique way. Traces of the changing uses and structural changes since 1907 are still visible today. A multimedia presentation shows how the ruptures and caesurae of the 20th century were inscribed in the history of the site, which personalities left their mark on the place and how the history of the Akademie and political events were interconnected.
