  2. Europe on Cure: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Thomas Mann and the Myth of Davos

    Exhibition of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nürnberg

Nowhere else were the hopes and longings, fears and threats of the late 19th and early 20th century so closely intertwined as here. The digital story and exhibition show the multifaceted history of this once little village and draw connections between medical and cure history, architecture, winter sport, art and literature, philosophy and politics.
