The glass showcase at the corner of Kleiststrasse/Schachtweg is the last of the original four showcases, which shaped the townscape of Wolfsburg in the 1950s and 1960s. While originally being used for documentation relating to the city's development, these rare artifacts served as advertising boxes and often stood empty in the past few decades.
Some 60 years after it was first erected, the last remaining showcase has undergone a transformation and has had new life breathed into it.
The initiators want to present historical and contemporary ideas and objects, creating a space for everyday culture in the immediate vicinity of Wolfsburg's 'Hallenbad' (former public pool). Following renovation in 2012, this showcase features frequently changing exhibitions on the themes of culture, history, society and art.
