The Soviet Poster Show has agreed to lend a selection of posters for a 2019 Cold War exhibition being organized at the newly opened Wende Museum of The Cold War, in Culver City California. Named Wende (pronounced “venda”), a German word meaning “turning point” or “change” that has come to describe the transformative period leading up to and following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the Wende Museum collects and preserves artwork, artifacts, archives, films, and personal histories from Cold War–era Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union relating to the period 1945–1991.
The museum recently relocated to its new home at the historic former National Guard Armory Building on Culver Blvd where it can house and display a rotation of over 100,000 objects related to the cold war era.
The Wende Museum is located at 5741 Buckingham Parkway in Culver City, California. The Museum is open to the public every Friday from 10am to 5pm or by appointment. Admission is free. For more information, call 310-216-1600 or go to www.wendemuseum.org.
Further details on this 2019 exhibition will be announced in the coming months.
