Art of Prehistoric Times: Rock Paintings from the Frobenius Collection
BERLIN, GERMANY  •  Martin-Gropius-Bau Berlin  •  21 January - 16 May 2016
 
Around 100 samples, including many large, wall-sized copies from the Frobenius Institute, as well as photographic and archive material, depict the epic history of rock-art documentation in European caves, the central Sahara, the savannahs of Zimbabwe, and the Australian outback. This exhibition examines the impact of these never-before-seen images on modernity, and the manner in which they have inspired artists.

<EM>Relics of the Cold War: Photographs by Martin Roemers</EM>
Relics of the Cold War: Photographs by Martin Roemers
Relics of the Cold War: Photographs by Martin Roemers
BERLIN, GERMANY  •  Deutsches Historisches Museum  •  4 March - 14 August 2016
 

What is left of the Cold War? World Press Photo Award-winning Dutch photographer Martin Roemers documents the structural and topographic relics of the conflict between East and West in Europe. The solo exhibition  comprises photographs taken between 1998 and 2009 in ten European countries: Russia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Latvia and Lithuania from the former Eastern bloc; Great Britain, the Netherlands and Belgium from the West, and finally both parts of once-divided Germany. Martin Roemers' photographs take us to abandoned army bases and bunker complexes, military training areas, technical installations, monitoring facilities and military cemeteries.

The exhibition sets the Relics of the Cold War series in its historical context. Themed sections examine the arms race in the nuclear age, the defensive measures and preparations for the eventuality of a third world war, the role of technology, the rise of the intelligence services and the instrumentalisation of history in public commemoration. They reveal that the Cold War was both a confrontation between two systems and a system in itself: one that has left similar, once functional remains on both sides of the Iron Curtain.
