Exhibition to commemorate ten years of Wertpapierwelt
To commemorate its ten-year anniversary, Wertpapierwelt is presenting a new type of exhibition: one of modular design that invites visitors to look at the world of securities from different perspectives.
How do the different financial instruments function? How did the idea of a joint stock company on which our economy is based arise and catch on? How has capitalism and in turn the share changed our world? These key questions have been addressed by Wertpapierwelt - the Museum of Historical Shares and Bonds – to mark its tenth anniversary. The new permanent exhibition displays in its "Shares & Co - How financial instruments work" section the multifaceted nature of financial instruments and their workings. The second section "The Story of capitalism – How shares changed the world" is devoted to the origin and spread of the joint stock company throughout the last 400 years. Using historical and modern securities, the additional special exhibition entitled "The networked business world – Globalization and shares" provides an impression of just how globally interconnected the economy is with the most varied areas of our lives.
