Villa Schöningen: A Cold War Museum

The permanent display galleries house a historical exhibition on the story of the Glienicke Bridge during the Cold War. In the exhibition the horror of totalitarian regimes is made perceptible... In addition to the permanent exhibition on German history in the Cold War, Villa Schöningen will host temporary exhibitions of contemporary art. The idea is to show art, which deals with issues related to the place, such as the Cold War, German division and reunification, 1989, totalitarianism, democracy and freedom [Villa Schöningen: A Cold War Museum, 2010].
