An exhibition on the famous Friedhof der Märzgefallenen in Berlin – Friedrichshain. A cemetery where the revolutionaries of the barricade fights on 18. and 19. March 1848 in Berlin were buried. They died in the struggle for more general freedom, the right to work and freedom of the press. Nowadays it’s a place where you’ll discover more than 170 years of German history. I curated the exhibition together with Martina Nußbaum and Dietmar Lange. Exhibition from 27. August – 20. September 2020 in Verwalterhaus, Prenzlauer Allee 1 Berlin
