Prussia on Celluloid - Films on Frederick II


Preußen aus Celluloid - Friedrich II. im Film

How do films stage the rococo world of Frederick II?

How did screenwriters, set designers, costume designers, directors, and actors create the world view displayed in films on Prussia?

The book accompanying the exhibition is the first result of a research project in which Filmmuseum Potsdam cooperated with the Institute of Art and Visual Studies of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and that was supported through Volkswagen Foundation's "Research in Museums" funding initiative.
