In collaboration with the Thompson Gallery, The Wende Museum and Archive of the Cold War will present Deconstructing Perestroika, the first major exhibition in the United States of hand-painted Soviet-era political posters that were inspired by a new government policy of transparency in the former Soviet Union. Organized to mark the 20th anniversary of the former super power’s demise in December 1991, this exhibition highlights some of the key political and cultural shifts that defined the era and ultimately led to the fall of the Soviet Union.
The exhibition Claus Bach's View of Weimar presents scenes of East German (GDR) everyday life that may seem typical, yet show how people gave individual meaning to their lives within the larger socialist collective. They capture prosaic experiences and at the same time, reflect on them. These images also provide views into the immediate post-Wall period in the GDR. This is the first time Claus Bach's work is being shown outside of Germany.
