Museum of European Cultures Berlin

The Museum of European Cultures in Berlin is dedicated to the study and presentation of lifeworlds and cultural contacts within Europe from the 18th century to present day. The permanent exhibition "Culture Contact.  Living in Europe" offers a cross-section of the museum’s extensive holdings while addressing contemporary issues such as social movements and national boundaries.   The cultural exchange resulting from today’s increased immigration to and mobility within Europe fosters hybrid cultures, but also raises questions of belonging and identity for individuals as well as groups.

The 2014 exhibition "I'm not afraid of anything! Portraits of young Europeans. Photographs by Edgar Zippel”. By creating a portrait of a generation in Europe at the dawn of the 21st century, Zippel captured on film various senses of identity and moments of self-reflection and stored them in a visual archive for the future.

The aesthetic effect of the walls on the spatial structure allows the exhibits to take precedence.
