Tuesday, April 8, 2014 - 12:00pm

Please join us for a talk, discussion and luncheon with Wilhelm von Boddien, Managing Director, Förderverein Berliner Schloss e.V.

He will speak about "Marketing a 'Crazy Idea': The Reconstruction of the Berlin City Place as the Humboldt Forum".

Synopsis. Since 1992, Wilhelm von Boddien has led efforts to restore The Berliner Schloss, once a gem of Baroque architecture in the historic core of the city.
Von Boddien's vision is not only to rebuild a historical monument, but to establish this monument as a center of art, culture, science and education—the Humboldt Forum. Is this only a "crazy idea"? Wilhelm von Boddien will provide us with an opportunity to find out more.
