When Walls Talk! - Tours, talks & workshops

Guided tours in the temporary exhibition "When Walls Talk!"

This exhibition aims to reflect European history through posters from the last 100 years, in a way that raises awareness about the multiplicity of perspectives and interpretations. From the propaganda of the World Wars and the Cold War to the explosion of cultural exchange, tourism and the emergence of multi-voiced social movements after the Second World War, complex layers of European division and unity are revealed through a selection of posters from the collection of the House of European History.

Creative Workshop: “Walls you, what do you have to say?”

- , first floor, Fables Room

Posters function as vehicles to inform, but also educate and even manipulate. They reflect the societal struggles for ideas, power, or wealth and they give a powerful voice to citizens on different social, cultural or political issues. In other words, posters can be agents and witnesses of ideological confrontations in European history, reflecting the situations of the moment and providing us with a rich record of European stories.

During this workshop, visitors will learn about European history through unique posters related to human rights, activism, borders and travel in Europe, arts, sports and cultural events. Visitors can also “time travel”, by creating their own posters on a topic they feel is important for the European public sphere.
