"Democracy will win!" Exhibition

Thu, May 4, 2023 - Wed, May 31, 2023 • Hamlin Space (Weitz)

Exhibition "Democracy will win!" by the Thomas Mann House in Pacific Palisade (CA), organized by German at Carleton in partnership with the Germanic American Institute in Saint Paul and Arts at Carleton, in Hamlin Space (Weitz).

This unique exhibition explores the political journey of Thomas Mann, from a monarchist to a vocal opponent of National Socialism and an ardent supporter of democracy. It connects his life to ongoing debates on both sides of the Atlantic and features pivotal historical moments, such as the Selma to Montgomery Marches, the Monday demonstrations in East Germany, right-wing terror after the end of the Cold War, the March for Our Lives, the legalization of same-sex marriage, UN climate summits, and the Black Lives Matter movement. The exhibit engages in essential debates about democracy, resistance movements, and social justice.
