BERLIN: Citadel Museum

UNVEILED. BERLIN AND ITS MONUMENTS

The cultural-historical exhibition shows political monuments which were once part of Berlin’s urban landscape but have been removed. Some of the most important exhibits are the group of monuments of the Siegesallee built between 1898 to 1901 depicting the Brandenburg-Prussian rulers, the Zehnkämpfer (Decathlete) designed by Arno Breker and characterised by National Socialism, and the head of the monumental Lenin statue unveiled in 1970 at today’s Platz der Vereinten Nationen in Friedrichshain.

The Museum Where Racist and Oppressive Statues Go to Die
Germany has found ways to display problematic monuments without elevating them.
