Luther the Reformer: 500 Year Legacy
Five hundred years ago, on October 31, 1517, Martin Luther published his Ninety-Five Theses. Luther’s later translation of the Bible into German made its content accessible to ordinary citizens, redefining the relationship between the state and the church. This series showcases documentaries and films from Germany and the former GDR about Martin Luther.
Until November 9
BRILLIANT DILLETANTES (GENIALE DILLETANTEN)
“Geniale Dilletanten” was the deliberately misspelled title of a concert that took place at Berlin’s Tempodrom in 1981. But over the years since then, it has come to represent an artistic scene in West and East Germany during the mid-1980’s, an era of upheaval in which people in all the arts experimented with new ways of expression. The exhibition runs until November 9.
