The Rhine in 38 exhibitions
7 October 2022
The Museum Network (Netzwerk Museen/Réseau des musées) presenta a cross-border exhibition series on the Rhine. Between autumn 2022 and spring 2023, the network organises 38 exhibitions around the theme “The Rhine”.
The exhibitions will take place in North and South Baden (Germany), in the departments of Haut-Rhin and Bas-Rhin (France) and in Northwest Switzerland. They will shed light on the Rhine from various perspectives.
Nature, ecology and navigation on the Rhine will be addressed, as well as architecture, history, art, culture, religion, technology and the various national visions of this great river.
The Museum Network is an association of museums from France, Germany and Switzerland that works together on a project basis. Every four years, the network presents exhibitions on a common theme in the participating museums.
The network’s cross-border exhibitions highlight themes from different perspectives. Large and small museums are involved.
The network’s first exhibition series in 2014 was dedicated to the First World War, with more than 20 exhibitions. The Dreiländermuseum Lörrach coordinates the Museum Network.
