BlackBox in Berlin

BlackBox Cold War in Berlin

The so-called BlackBox describes the division of Berlin in the context of the international confrontation at the historical site of the 1961 tank confrontation.

A small cinema, documents and original objects show in this unique exhibition what the Berlin Wall had to do with the Cuba crisis and the Korean War. Inside, the BlackBox consists of a single room. In the centre of the exhibition, the German-German and thus national perspective is depicted on walls marked in red. The international dimension is presented on the green marked inside of the outer wall. By means of display boards and graphics, interesting contemporary stories are told by means of photos, videos and exciting exhibits. Whether it's threatening confrontations, spectacular espionage or the world on the brink of nuclear war, the BlackBox offers everyone a compact and informative exhibition about the Cold War.
