The transregional history of Bohemia and Saxony in prehistoric and early historic times served as the starting point of this epoch-spanning exhibition project highlighting the development of today’s cultural landscape(s). What did prehistoric humans and the first stone-age settlers find there? How did they make use of and gradually shape their environment? How did cultural exchange develop through migration, religion, art, exile, economy, ethnicity, language and domination? This project offered a richly facetted portrayal of regional transformation and depicted the multidimensional and polyvalent relations and interconnections of both regions.
The concept required a cross-border approach to Saxon-Bohemian history which was performed in joint cooperation by several institutions in both regions. This involved merging various disciplines such as Archaeology, History, Art and Cultural History, and European Ethnology. A bilateral workshop in Prague served as the basis for scientific engagement. A fellow from the Czech Republic accompanied the project from the very beginning. The exhibition was shown in Chemnitz and Prague.
