ALEXANDER THE GREAT:Opening Up The World * Asia's Cultures in Transition

Mannheim, Germany
October 3, 2009 to February 21, 2010

The exhibit follows the path of the Macedon King all the way to Central Asia and brings to life the cultural, economic, and social changes that were radically triggered in his passing. It shows how Alexander's campaign gave impetus to the process of Hellenization and the spreading of Greek culture. The exhibit is a collaboration of renowned museums from Europe and Central Asia. Many items on display will be presented to the public for the very first time.
