Developed in cooperation with the Documentation Centre for Everyday Culture in the GDR, this project takes a culturally historic look at how the developments following World War II affected the socialisation of families, children and young people. The exhibition illustrates the development, similarities and differences between East and West Germany using recurrent notions such as family, friendship, games, learning, celebrations, role models and idols. The exhibition will be supplemented by a publication, as well as lectures, films and workshops in Berlin and Eisenhüttenstadt.
