Berlin-Pergamon-Museum

  1. 1. Pergamon Museum, Berlin The Pergamon Museum is situated on the Museum Island in Berlin and was constructed in twenty years, from 1910 to 1930. The Pergamon houses original-sized, reconstructed monumental buildings such as Pergamon Altar Pergamon Museum the Pergamon Altar, the Market Gate of Miletus, all consisting of parts transportedfrom Turkey. There is controversy over the legitimacy of the acquisition of the collection. It was suggestedthat the collection should be returned to Turkey (original country of the excavations).The museum is subdivided into the antiquity collection, the Middle East museum, and the museum ofIslamic art. The museum is visited by approximately 850,000 people every year, making it the most visitedart museum in Germany. The Pergamon Museum was severely damaged during the air attack of Berlin at theend of the Second World War. Many of the display objects were stored in safe places, and some of the largepieces were walled in for protection. In 1945, the Red Army collected all of the loosemuseum items, either as war booty or, ostensibly, to rescue them from looting and firesthen raging in Berlin. Not until 1958 were most of the objects returned to East Germany. Significant parts of the collection remain in Russia. Some are currently stored in the Pushkin Museum in Moscow and the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg. The return of these items has been arranged in a treaty between Germany and Russia but, as of June 2003, is blocked by Russian restitution laws. Aleppo room Ishtar GateMiki Pitish ©
