Coal - the black gold of Lusatia - had a major impact on the landscape and industrial development of the two Lusatian regions.
The self-image of Lusatia, as well as its image to the outside world, are closely linked to the history of coal mining in the region.
From the beginnings of lignite mining in Lusatia, more than 160 years ago, to the present day, coal has played an important role and is still a present topic in the media.
The exhibition series "Blessing and Curse - The Black Gold of Lusatia" is intended to reflect the history of lignite mining in Lower Lusatia in sections and to illustrate the close fusion with all areas of society in our region.
The first exhibition, which will open the "Lignite Series" in the summer of 2022, will begin the series with a thematic overview.
