On 13 March 1848, in the face of hunger and misery, the uprising of the working class and the poorest sections of the population against the outdated political system began in Vienna. In Berlin, the uprisings began on 18/19 March. This year marks the 175th anniversary which is only one reason for this exhibition in the Manufactory of Dreams.
Another is the 200th birthday of Hans Kudlich. Kudlich was actively involved in the midst of the revolutionary events and is considered the "peasant liberator" in the Habsburg monarchy.
After the suppression of the uprisings, he fled to the United States, where he campaigned for Germanness and practised his profession as a doctor.
Hans Kudlich is a lot better known on the Bohemian side of the Ore Mountains than on the German. In cooperation with the Chomutov Regional Museum and the Freundeskreis Bauernbefreier HANS KUDLICH e.V. the joint German-Czech exhibition project brings this interesting historical personality closer to visitors in the form of a walk-in history book.
The bilingual exhibition uses the example of the cross-border revolutionary events to once again highlight the historical significance of the Ore Mountains as a transfer region between the Kingdom of Saxony and the Habsburg Monarchy.
For even on the Saxon side of the ridge of the Ore Mountains, things were boiling furiously in the years 1848 and 1849. Whether it was Robert Blum's flaming speech in Annaberg, the march of the Buchholz gymnasts under Fritz Hesse and Georg Adler to Dresden or the uprising of the nail smiths in Raschaugrund:
This exhibition in the Manufactory of Dreams also focuses on local and regional events in Saxony and the Ore Mountains. It illustrates these with exclusive exhibits from the collection of the municipal museums and private collections.
The popular uprisings in the middle of the 19th century were sometimes bloodily put down, but this set a very decisive course on the way to a democratic and united Germany, as the special exhibition "The Walk-in History Book - Hans Kudlich and the Revolution of 1848" shows until 30 June 2023.
