Unknown Kazakhstan – archaeology in the heart of Asia

For many years, the DBM has been running a joint project with Kazakh colleagues, mainly on ancient copper and tin mining in Kazakhstan. This was the inspiration for the exhibition.

850 m2 of exhibition space were used to portray an extraordinary country: a wide variety of landscapes, friendly people, and many different cultures covering thousands of years of history. More than 1000 original exhibits from 6000 years of history, flown in directly from Kazakhstan, clearly illustrated the cultural wealth of this huge country. Various multimedia presentations allowed visitors to take a more in-depth look at the topic, or to simply drink in the beauty of the country and its culture.
