    ‘After the Great War’ exhibition in Brussels

    18 – 25 September 2023, Esplanade Solidarność 1980, Place du Luxembourg 100

    We invite you to visit our outdoor exhibition “After The Great War”, on its 23rd stop, now in Brussels!
    For one week only you’ll find the display at the Esplanade Solidarność 1980 near the European Parliament.
    There will be a guided tour in English through the exhibition on the 19th September at 2 PM.

    Over 200 archive and multimedia materials – pictures, maps, and films – together with individual stories of those who lived then, present a complex yet coherent picture of a New Europe. The main goal of the travelling display is to illustrate the scale of the political changes and their impact on current politics as well as to reveal different national memories.

    The exhibition aims to present well-documented facts in an original and refreshing way by highlighting their mutual connections and weaving them into one narrative, considering multiple perspectives.

    Learn about the changes the First World War (1914–1918) brought to Europe. How did the continent change? What superpowers were ruined and made way for new independent states? What was the everyday life of Europeans like in the post-war years Could the events of a century ago have parallels with the current global situation?

    The exhibition After the Great War. New Europe 1918–1923 has been presented for five years as part of an international tour. It was displayed in twenty-two cities over thirteen countries so far: Prague (Czech Republic), Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Bratislava (Slovakia), Verdun (France), Berlin and Weimar (Germany), Rijeka (Croatia), Vienna (Austria), Kaunas and Vilnius (Lithuania), Tallinn (Estonia), Darmstadt (Germany), Dublin (Ireland), Sibiu (Romania), Trieste (Italy), Wroclaw, Cracow, Warsaw, Poznan, Lublin, Szczecin and Gdansk (Poland).
