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.
