This magazine accompanies thetouring exhibition The history of Europe – told by its theatres. The exhibition is a joint production of six theatre museums in the framework of the project European Route of Historic Theatres 2012-2017, supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union, without which this project could not have been realized.
In such a co-operation, usually one museum takes the lead, with one curator developing the content and choosing the exhibits. But not in this project. Here, colleagues from all museums met frequently and together developed the outline of the exhibition, proposed exhibits, discussed them jointly, made the selection together. later designers were chosen, and their ideas, too, were discussed by the group. The exhibition is therefore the result of continuous teamwork between six museums over a period of more than two years. A very unusual undertaking, and a great pleasure to moderate.
The magazine elaborates on the nine topics of the exhibition and offers a more detailed look at selected themes. The texts go beyond those featured in the exhibition, but as the magazine is not an exhibition catalogue, only a selection of the exhibits are shown. In this way, we hope to offer visitors and readers a stimulating experience. Carsten Jung, project manager
