The traveling exhibition can be seen in Berlin from March 30, 2017 onwards, then in Karlsruhe and finally from November 19, 2017 to March 18, 2018 at the Institut Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt.

The core elements of the exhibition are the records belonging to the Otto-Bartning-Archive of the TU Darmstadt. Since summer 2015 a selection of the partly severely damaged sketches, plans and models have been properly conserved with the financial aid of the university and so could be prepared for presentation. The restoration measures were directed and carried out by an external conservator in the restoration department of the ULB with the help of the local personnel.

Exhibition time schedule:

  • Akademie der Künste Berlin March 30 – June 18, 2017
  • Städtische Galerie Karlsruhe July 22 – October 22, 2017
  • Institut Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt November 19, 2017 – March 18, 2018
