Exhibition: From Luther to Twitter Adult


The exhibition “From Luther to Twitter. Media and the Public Sphere” deals with the relationship between media, politics and the public sphere. Starting with the invention of printing and its importance for the Reformation, the exhibition then focuses on the press in the 18th and 19th centuries, the special role of radio broadcasting from the 1920s to the 1940s, and that of television in the post-war decades as well as the Internet. Transformations of the public sphere – between repression and emancipation – have always been influenced not least by the media. They will be traced in their continuities and interruptions up to the current developments.
