Cold War Spaces at the Wende Museum

November / 16 / 2017

Culver City’s Wende Museum is best described as a repository of Cold War-era artifacts from the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

Tucked away in an obscured office park for more than a decade it has found a new home at the revamped National Guard Armory in Culver City, CA. According to its founder and executive director Justinian A. Jampol the museum’s mission is to preserve Cold War-era history as a way to learn from the past and understand how it continues to impact the present.

The Wende Museum will reopen in its new home with a paid gala on November 18 and a free opening to the public on November 19.

The inaugural exhibit “Cold War Spaces,” explores public, private, secret, utopian, and changing spaces of socialist cultures and includes four 30×40 inch photographic prints from Gerd Ludwig’s body of work ‘The Long Shadow of Chernobyl’.
