Experience History

The artist is a contemporary witness. The Ernst Barlach Museum Ratzeburg brings history to life and shows the biography of Ernst Barlach in a historical setting:

A digital timeline invites to explore the political, cultural, work and life history events. We can playfully call up the photos, films and documents from 150 years hidden in a 5.60 metre long touch screen panel. We experience the historical structures and collective memories on which our present is built. The Barlach Game specially designed for this purpose brings historical experience to vibrancy and activates our awareness of time.
