The New Humboldt-Forum in Berlin - Demonstrating Global Arts & Cultures

“The most dangerous world view is the world view of those who have never seen the world!”
—Alexander von Humboldt

“Ideas can only be of use when they come alive in many minds.”
—Alexander von Humboldt

In the former political center of Berlin, within the newly reconstructed former Royal Palace, a great permanent exhibition of Non-European Art will soon be unveiled. Named after geographer, naturalist, and explorer Alexander von Humboldt and his brother Wilhelm von Humboldt, the new Humboldt-Forum will be a unique and internationally influential center for art, culture, science and learning. In combination with theatre, music-performance, and political conferences, it will be an eye-opening experience for visitors from all over the world. Equally important will be its role in articulating global economic and ecological developments and presenting the tasks to be faced in shaping them.

Wilhelm von Boddien, Business Manager of the Association Berliner Schloss e.V. in Hamburg, will provide an overview of the Humboldt- Forum project, and will also provide a brief history of Alexander von Humboldt’s role in exploration.

Also note, on Thursday, March 5th, the German Consulate of New York will be hosting a Humboldt-Forum exhibition launch event from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Click here for more information.
