80 Years of Batman

Exhibition duration: Tuesday, June 18, 2019, - Monday, September 30, 2019


Batman is a legend and among the most popular comic book characters in the world. In May 1939, 22-year-old Bob Kane published the first adventure of the dark knight in the comic book series Detective Comics Nr 27. This marked the beginning of a great success. Many fans have been drawn to the dark adventures in print and, since 1943, even on screen. Among his villains are many famous characters such the Joker, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy. 


The exhibition at the Amerikahaus shows an overview of comic artists’ work over the last 80 years and allows the visitor to dive into the world of Gotham City. The show includes original drawings from Bob Kane, Neal Adams, Jim Aparo, Frank Miller, Jim Lee, Greg Capullo, Alex Ross, Tim Sale, Jock and many more.

Exhibition Duration: Friday, September 20, 2019 - Sunday, October 27, 2019


In his series Displaced, German visual artist Jens Schwarz explores the topic of migration during the so called 'refugee crisis', a peak period in terms of numbers, in Germany between September 2015 and April 2016. The exhibition, held at the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA,is curated by Valentine Umansky. 


Jens Schwarz, born 1968 in Berlin, studied art history in Paris and photography in Munich. In his work, he focuses on sociopolitical issues that often deal with questions of both the individual and social identity. 


This transatlantic project was initiated in recognition of the 30th anniversary of the sister city partnership of Munich and Cincinnati, Ohio.


The exhibition is co-produced by Amerikahaus Munich and is part of the Year of German-American Friendship 2018/2019 (Deutschlandjahr USA) which is a collaborative initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the Goethe-Institut, and supported by The Federation of German Industries (BDI).
