THE KENNEDYS goes on world tour, therefore it closes its doors in The Former Jewish Girls' School Berlin on January 27, 2019.

This is a new and exciting chapter in the chronicle of the world’s largest private collection on the Kennedy family. John F. Kennedy’s connection to Germany and Berlin is an important part of our history and should be accessible to witnesses of that time as much as adolescents internationally. Furthermore, items of the collection have been part or will be part of exhibitions in museums, galleries, and other institutions worldwide. This induced the museum’s supporter CAMERA WORK AG to close the museum’s location in Berlin after over twelve years and let it become a long-run touring exhibition worldwide. We will keep you updated on the museum’s world tour.

We would like to thank you for your loyalty and the support of our many special exhibitions over the last years. If you have the chance to visit us in Berlin until January 27, 2019, we will be delighted to welcoming you. Otherwise we hope to see you in another city soon.

Farewell, Berlin, hello world!

special exhibition






October 12, 2018 – January 27, 2019


With over 70 photographs by renowned artists such as Steve Schapiro, Elliott Erwitt, Mark Shaw, Martin Schoeller and Pete Souza, the exhibition »Leading Ladies« aims to take a closer look at this central player.


The exhibition focuses on four former First Ladies of the United States: Jacqueline Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama. All four women have interpreted the office differently and enriched it with their own accents — defining the way we perceive the office of the First Lady today.


The exhibition also poses further questions regarding women’s roles in society as the public image of the First Lady has always been a balancing act between the traditional role of the wife and mother and the image of the emancipated political agent who follows her own ambitions. This enthralling ambivalence is addressed in the four aspects that structure the exhibition: companion, representative, campaigner and political player.
