The Dream Factory – 100 Years of Film in Babelsberg

25.05.2021 - 31.12.2022

Despite rapid technological progress, the making of films stil follows traditional patterns that even children are able to understand – and this is why the process of filmmaking is at the core of the exhibition. The starting point of every film production is an idea. Finding a producer for the project sets the stage for a long process that includes casting, costumes and make-up, set construction, shooting, editing and sound design. Interactive modules allow them to find out in a playful, intuitive way what it’s like to sing a long with Zara Leander or to replace actors in a casting session. Besides, the exhibition provides young people looking for professional perspectives with hands-on information on jobs in the media business. A computer-based information system and an exhibition guide shed light on the background of film production in Babelsberg, putting films and those who worked on them into their historical context.

Surrealism and Magic: Enchanted Modernity

02.10.2022 - 29.01.2023

With his Manifesto of Surrealism, published in October 1924, the French writer André Breton founded a literary and artistic movement that soon became the leading international avant-garde. At the center of the Surrealist enterprise lay a reorientation towards the world of the night-dream, the unconscious and the irrational. Numerous artists, who moved in the intellectual orbit of the movement, also immersed themselves in the imaginative world of magic. In their works, they frequently drew on occult symbolism and cultivated the traditional image of the artist’s persona as a magician, seer, and alchemist.
