The exhibition Between Horizons offers a chronological reading of this fascinating and complex history to the modern era. For although the political and cultural environment was sometimes hostile exchange of ideas between the French and German intelligentsia, free spirits share the same fascination for France and have the audacity to become transmitters of ideas and promoters of the renewal of art in the young nation that then Germany.
