The History of Berlin’s Media and Communication Studies
There are many different approaches to writing down the history of academic institutes, for example by focussing on people, traditions, or ideas. At the Division Communication History and Media Cultures, however, Prof. Dr. Maria Löblich and her team decided to take a different perspective for presenting the institute's history: Through the lens of social dynamics and political developments they created an exhibition on the history of the Institute of Media and Communication Studies in Berlin from its foundation up to the late 1980s.
The exhibition can be found in its physical form in the institute's foyer and digitally, on the German webpage. It features voices of various members of the institute, an overview of the multiple location changes, and insights on the ever-present connections to politics.
