Exhibitions

The library occasionally organizes exhibitions based on different topics, often in collaboration with the JFK-Institute. Furthermore the library presents a monthly changing selection of books of its new acquisitions.


John F. Kennedy 100

On the occasion of John F. Kennedy's 100th birthday the library presented photos of Kennedy and his family. Rare pictures of his youthful days as well as official press releases of his presidential years paint an intimate portrait of the assassinated president.

American Family Portraits

The JFKI library presented photographs of two American families from 1945-1970. This era was marked by the outstanding success of the “Kodachrome” transparency film which made color images available to the wider population at relatively low cost.

Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years

The exhibition „Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years“ showed portraits made by Dagmar Schultz, primarily taken in Berlin of places that were important to her. They illustrate private moments as well as Lorde’s commitment for Afro-German women.
