100 years in 100 pictures

On 6 December 2018, the exhibition to mark the centenary of our namesake opened its doors. Until it was forced by the coronavirus pandemic to close in spring 2020, more than 15,000 people had visited the show. Through its pictures, it offered a unique overview of a life that spanned a century and portrayed the person behind the politician, publicist and elder statesman as well as what for him were central themes and contemporary events. The exhibition shows “the pragmatist, the polemicist, the realist, the soldier, the ‘leading employee of the republic’, the European and global thinker, the Hanseatic citizen, the art lover and the artist, the publicist and man in demand, and by no means least the man at Loki’s side” (Peer Steinbrück in the foreword to the exhibition catalogue).
The photographic exhibition “100 years in 100 pictures” will be on display from 2 October 2021 to 23 January 2022 in the Wollhalle Gallery in Güstrow.
