Mandela: The Official Exhibition

Oct 19 - Mar 15 2020       Budapester Straße 38-50, Charlottenburg
Mandela: The Official Exhibition, a moving journey through the life of the world’s most iconic activist and leader, is coming to Berlin for the second stop on its world-wide tour.

Co-produced by Mandela’s grandson, Nkosi Zwelivelile Mandela, with lessons that speak to the challenges of today, the immersive exhibition tells the powerful story of a freedom-fighter who went on to unite a divided nation and inspire the world.  We learn about Nelson Mandela’s uncanny ability to lead by example, bringing people of all races and backgrounds into his government and his life.  Many of the stories and observations are shared firsthand through a number of contributors including Mandela’s personal assistant Zelda La Grange, as well as his warden and later, life-time friend, Christo Brand.

At the exhibition’s celebrated London premiere in February 2019, CNN reported the exhibition “uncovers of a wealth of fresh material” and called it “an intimate portrait of Mandela’s life”. The Times declared “Mandela’s message of mutual respect and common humanity feels as relevant as ever”. 

In London, more than 100.000 visitors walked in Nelson Mandela’s footsteps through immersive areas depicting the South African Transkei, the apartheid state, Robben Island and more. The interactive experience combines never-before-seen films, photos and more than 150 historical artifacts and personal effects on loan from the Mandela family, museums and archives worldwide. One visitor explained “This is a much more personal and interactive exhibition…not only was it created to educate, but to restart the conversation around how we can each do our part.”

Mandela: The Official Exhibition offers reassurance that by following Nelson Mandela’s lessons of compassion and forgiveness there is hope for a better world.
