Spandau and the founding of Greater Berlin in 1920

13.9.2020 – 9.1.2022

Arsenal

 

What led to the Spandauer identity? In the area of tension between the Berlin administration / Spandau magistrate and the everyday life of the residents of Spandau, the topics of traffic, work, leisure, housing and the military are presented, which were decisive for Spandau around 1920 and fundamental for today’s (self) perception of Spandau. Objects, texts and participatory possibilities reflect the change from the stubborn city to the self-ironic part of Berlin.

Ausstellungsplakat Jein danke!
100 years of Greater Berlin! Spandau’s incorporation into the metropolis was successful in 1920, albeit not without headwind. The exhibition “Yes and No Thanks” in the armory of the Spandau Citadel is dedicated to this historical occasion.
Our guide Christian Fessel shows the circumstances under which the residents of the district lived in the 1920s. Are the problems in the housing market really a novelty? Which social developments follow the incorporation?

Our guide Dominik Draheim speaks on the one hand about the development of the infrastructure and the expansion of Spandau’s transport network. On the other hand, we learn to what extent the topics from then are still relevant today.
