This exhibition of the Museum Europäischer Kulturen (MEK) is being held in conjunction with the 17th European Cultural Days, which in 2020 will focus on the Spanish region of Murcia. The region, its particularities and its history will be presented through a focus on two central themes: its fruit-growing tradition and the role played by migration in the region.

The history of human settlement in Murcia stretches back almost 50,000 years. In the Middle Ages, it was home to communities of Muslims, Christians and Jews. Today it is a place where illegalised migrants – whose work on Murcia’s plantations makes Murcia’s reputation as one of Europe’s main fruit-growing regions possible – come together with retirees from Northern Europe, who move to the region to live out their twilight years.

Through photographs, objects from the MEK collection and from Spanish cooperation partners, the exhibition brings to life the everyday experience of the region.

A special exhibition of the Museum Europäischer Kulturen – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin in cooperation with the Center for European Studies/Universidad de Murcia and the Sociedad Murciana de Antropología
