Boom. 500 years of industrial heritage in Saxony - The 4th Saxon State Exhibition

Curator: Thomas Spring

Central exhibition venue: AUDI-Building, Zwickau

The Saxon State Ministry for Science and Art has entrusted the Deutsches  Hygiene-Museum  with  the  organisation  of  the  state exhibition in Zwickau. With numerous projects that have gained nationwide recognition,  the  museum  in  Dresden  has  become  a competence centre for surprising and popular theme-based exhibitions, all of which focus on humans as social and cultural beings.

From July 10 to Decembre 31 2020, the 4th Saxon State Exhibition in Zwickau will focus on the region of south-west Saxony as one of the cradles of European industrialisation. With its motto “Boom. 500 years of industrial heritage in Saxony” it will turn the history of industrialisation in Saxony into an exciting experience and highlight its future development.

Alongside the central exhibition in the AUDI-Building Zwickau a further six other authentic venues in the region will provide fascinating insight into key branches in Saxon technology and industry history. With this decentralised structure, the 4th Saxon State Exhibition  is  presenting  almost  the  entire  spectrum  of  Saxony’s industrial heritage.
