The exhibition “Michael Ende. Magische Welten” (Magic Worlds), which can currently still be seen at the Deutsches Theatermuseum Munich, will move on to the Filmmuseum Potsdam on 21 February. Young and old fans will meet old friends such as Momo, Atréju and Jim Button - all hands on and close to touch.
During his lifetime he collected plenty of prizes and awards, but now Michael Ende has another one to add to his name: Under the direction of AVA International the Deutsches Theatermuseum Munich shows currently the exhibition “Michael Ende. Magische Welten” (Magical Worlds). The presentation about Ende’s life and work is dedicated first and foremost to a lesser-known aspect: to the renowned writer’s work in the fields of theatre and film. All the more the responsible curators are happy to hear that the exhibition has been awarded the tz-Rose of the week by the Munich daily paper tz. “What the Theatermuseum has arranged over three floors are live-in books, a novel that can be entered, a virtual stage for all senses: seeing, listening and touching, everything is allowed, and the subjects of the books will even be used as a base for arts, crafts and games. […] At its centre is the visual experience, which is created according to the realm of Phantásia”, writes tz.
On 18 October 2007 the exhibition "Michael Ende. Magische Welten" (Magic Worlds) opens its doors to the public. Original film props, first drafts for the animated pictures, reconstructions of original stage sceneries, fantastic costumes, marionettes – what curators Roman Hocke and Uwe Neumahr have assembled here is magic and wonderful. The catalog will be published by Henschel-Verlag. On 21 February, the exhibition moves on to the Filmmuseum Potsdam.
