Utopia: Revisiting a German State in America

The exhibit “Utopia: Revisiting a German State in America” will open at German-American Heritage Museum in Washington, DC on September 6, 2014.  

“Utopia” tells the story of the Giessen Emigration Society, a group of 500 individuals, who decided to emigrate from Germany en masse in 1834 and to re-settle on the American frontier. Comprised of dreamers and visionaries, the emigrants strove to establish a democratic German-speaking state on US soil.

The exhibit is on loan from the Traveling Summer Republic, a group of artists, filmmakers, and scholars based in Giessen, Germany, and will be on display through October 25, 2014.
