The exhibition was launched to mark the university’s 50th anniversary. It includes more than 50 sites showing areas where researchers, teaching staff, and students are an important part of the economy, politics, administration, education, or culture – and where ideas and cooperation from within the university have created something new. Whether Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), AOK Bremen/Bremerhaven, bremer shakespeare company, or German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI): Various exhibition panels feature numerous actors who are connected to the university in a variety of ways. The 50 Reasons WHY exhibition thus vividly illustrates the university’s many facets and highlights its importance for Bremen City. Anyone who always wanted to know why, for example, the German Maritime Museum collects old ships, why Reishunger is crazy about the small grain, and what exciting activities alumni pursue after graduation should not miss the opportunity to visit the 50 Reasons WHY exhibition at Weserpark.
“We want as many people as possible in Bremen to have the opportunity to visit the exhibition free of charge"
“When developing this exhibition, it was important to us from the very beginning that it would not only be on display at the Lower Town Hall and digitally,” says the President of the University of Bremen, Professor Bernd Scholz-Reiter. “We want as many people as possible in Bremen to have the opportunity to visit the exhibition free of charge. That is why we are delighted that Weserpark is now making this possible.” At the 76,000-square-meter shopping mall, visitors can conveniently enjoy the German-English anniversary exhibition of the University of Bremen during a shopping spree. It will be located in the area between the Edeka supermarket and Müller drugstore.
Shopping mall manager Monika Mehrtens: “Bremen for Bremen citizens – we are pleased that we, as a part of Bremen, are able to present this exhibition about the University of Bremen and its partners. Weserpark, which was forced to miss its 30th anniversary celebration last year due to the pandemic, is proud to have this informative exhibition stop here.”
From November 26, 2021, you can visit the 50 Reasons WHY exhibition between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Monday to Saturday. Admission is free of charge. Further information on the exhibition is available at www.weserpark.de (in German) and https://www.uni-bremen.de/en/50years/events/50-reasons-why .
