My youth - Your youth

My youth – Your youth

History in the making

Hippies vs. generation selfie, shared phone lines vs. smartphones, The Who vs. YouTube stars – each young generation has its own ideas about shaping society. This exhibition takes a look at youth culture since 1945 and asks what is similar, what is different.

GRAN, WHAT WAS IT LIKE WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG ...?

A phone booth, snaps of teen rooms, a self-constructed moped – the exhibition stirs memories of one’s youth. It becomes especially fascinating when old and young walk through the exhibition together. Teens learn about their parents’ and grandparents’ wild years, and grown-ups learn what it’s like to be a teenager today.


WHAT MOVES YOUNG PEOPLE TODAY?

The focus of the dialog is the question of what interests young people today. Over 100 young people decided which questions should be asked about history and the present. The result: 13 topics, ranging from fashion to body image to recreational activities. Interactive stations spark an exchange of opinions, memories and anecdotes.


WHAT WILL THE FUTURE BRING?

Why host an exhibition about youth, past and present, at this time? For the first time in history, thanks to smartphones, Facebook & co, an entire generation of kids is connected worldwide. Will this change the behavior of young people? Are traditional relationships losing significance? And what does this development mean for the rest of society? Come to your own conclusions in our exhibition!
