Communication. From the dispatch to the tweet. The Bremen Archives and Radio Bremen [Exhibition].

Ein facettenreiches Bild der technischen, gesellschaftlichen oder sprachlichen Veränderungen unserer Kommunikation aus der Sicht Bremer Archive.

Arbeitskreis Bremer Archive | Untere Rathaushalle; Eröffnung am 3.3.2020 um 17.00 Uhr | D
Ausstellungsbeteiligung | Vom 4.3. bis 12.3.2020 täglich 11.00 bis 19.00 Uhr

“The Bremen archives present treasures from their holdings: Letters, photos, films, interviews, long-playing records, posters, radio recordings, telegrams and a wide variety of exhibits on the subject of “communication”. The spectrum ranges from the US station AFN, church radio and campus radio to the artist and musician John Cage, Werder TV and satellites in space travel. As in a kaleidoscope, a multi-faceted picture of the technical, social or linguistic changes in our communication over the past 100 to 200 years emerges.


The exhibition takes a special look at the cultural heritage of the city and state of Bremen. It is complemented by supra-regional and international themes. The preservation and making available of cultural assets are among the essential tasks of the diverse and multi-layered archive landscape in the federal state of Bremen.

In this context, the Bremen Archives Working Group also includes initiatives and collections whose holdings and professional content have hardly been noticed and dealt with by academic institutions. The exhibition is thus also an offer for new ideas and plans.”


A varied programme of events frames the show.

“Dance and Film – Symbiosis of Two Genres” is the title of the exhibition contribution by the German Dance Film Institute Bremen. Heide-Marie Härtel’s contribution on the origins and development of dance film and the interpenetration of dance and film is illustrated by photos, film clips and historical costumes as well as film equipment from the extensive holdings of our producing archive.


Tanzsalon 29 will be showing ” The Dance Film Institute in Transition”. The event will start on 10 March 2020 at 8pm as part of the exhibition and will highlight the coming step for Europe’s largest producing dance film archive.
