Object of the Month

In the series “Object of the Month” initiated by the Hermann von Helmholtz-Zentrum für Kulturtechnik (HZK) together with the collections of the Humboldt-Universität, we go to the various locations of the university, rummage through magazines, closets, exhibition and work spaces, look at sculptures, monuments and buildings, and present particularly interesting and noteworthy “objects” from the Humboldt University collections in a monthly rhythm. The focus is on contexts of origin, use, and provenance, as well as people associated with the objects. The object of the month offers the opportunity to get to know the diversity of the university and to broaden one’s own view of other things.
