UNBOXING – Tell Me Your Stories

31st August 2018 – 24th February 2019

At GRIMM WORLD Kassel, visitors can follow the traces of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, the famous fairy-tale collectors and linguists. The exhibition centre, which opened in 2015, was immediately selected as one of the ten best museums in the world by the English Guardian newspaper and numerous other prizes followed. The exhibition exploits the many technical possibilities of our age and presents Grimm’s Fairy Tales excitingly, graphically and interactively. Valuable originals, for example first editions of their “Children’s and Household Tales”, are on show in the exhibition’s treasure chamber. Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm’s personal working copies with their handwritten notes dating from 1812/1815 were declared to be Memory of the World documents by UNESCO-in 2005. The exhibition is structured like a glossary. Definitions from the “German Dictionary” show visitors the way. A total of 25 topic areas can thus be explored from A to Z. Interactive exhibition formats and historical evidence make GRIMMWELT a place of learning by discovery and active experience across a surface area of 1,300 m².

Arriving, unpacking, getting to know others and taking part – that is what you need to do in new surroundings so that you can feel at home, no longer an outsider. Everyone has experienced a situation like this, but it is especially strong for refugees who are confronted with a different culture and language after flight or expulsion. The GRIMM WORLD has created a multimedia box with didactic materials which help people to get acquainted and to converse with each other. All over the world there is a tradition of storytelling, and this is the basis for methods which have been developed and tested to enable refugees and people with a migrant background to participate socially. Now the GRIMM WORLD’S latest temporary exhibition presents these methods of "unboxing" from the model project "Tell Me Your Stories". The exhibition invites you to explore, participate and be active – get out of the box and get involved!

The entire material will be available as a free download:

The project is sponsored by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
