The Power of Emotions. Germany 19 | 19

Fear, hope, love and rage: Throughout history, emotions have propelled processes of reform and democratization. But they have also been objects of political instrumentalization and manipulation. The exhibition “The Power of Emotions: Germany 19 | 19,” developed by Ute Frevert, Director of the Center for the History of Emotions, and Bettina Frevert, historical educator, presents the history of Germany over the last 100 years through the perspective of 20 emotions.

The exhibition was commissioned by the Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future and the Bundesstiftung zur Aufarbeitung der SED-Diktatur. Further information can be found here.

At the Salon Sophie Charlotte of the Akademie der Wissenschaften Berlin, the Max Planck Society is presenting new findings from its institutes on the question of the origin of worldviews. Further information and the program can be found here.
