From the “sand jar” of the Holy Roman Empire to being part of Prussia to today’s state tourism marketing – images and myths determine how Brandenburg sees itself and how it is seen. The Brandenburg.Ausstellung shows how clichés are created and how history is written. And she counters this with discoveries: Who knows that Oder crayfishes were poor people’s food in Fontane’s day, or that thumbtacks and paper plates were invented here?

In cooperation with the director of the HPBG Dr. Kurt Winkler the NeoNext team developed a cabinet exhibition in the carriage stable of the house which is listed for preservation. The history of Brandenburg is presented from its beginnings to the post-reunification period, but always with reference to the present. The interactive exhibits also ensure that visitors of all generations are addressed.
