The wild 70s – being between soccer, pinball, and popular music

Date: June 29, 2019 – August 07, 2022
Location:

Schloß Benkhausen, Schlossallee 1 (Neustadtstr. 40)
32339 Espelkamp, Germany
Information: Deutsches Automatenmueum
Ph: 0049 5743-93182-22
Internet: http://www.deutsches-automatenmuseum.de
On Sunday evening for the first time the “Tatort” soundtrack (explanatory note: A German crime series which runs until today) sounds in the living rooms of the republic. Willy Brandt kneels in memory of the victims of the Second World War in Warsaw. The German national team becomes soccer world champion in its own country. Dieter Thomas Heck presents the latest hits in the TV “Hitparade” and the “Pril flower” (explanatory note: A decal which came with washing soap called “Pril”) makes its way into the nation’s kitchens. These events have left their marks on life in this country and have burned themselves into the collective memory.
A chewing gum on the street corner is “pulled” out of the vending machine, the favourite song in the ice cream parlour is pressed at the jukebox or the “pinball” in the pub. These little memories are also inseparably linked to life in the 1970s.
The exhibition “The Wild 1970s” is a journey into the German past. It reminds, amuses and shows how vending machines inspired people.

Greeting & a kiss, yours Ludwig – postcards tell the history of vending machines

From vacation greetings to field mail to expressions of love – the postcard delivered every conceivable message; long before there was a telephone, e-mail or even smartphone.
It has been possible to send a postcard in Germany for over 150 years. A matter of course from today’s point of view – at the time of its introduction, however, it was a sensation that was to change people’s communication forever.
Especially the picture postcards – i.e. postcards with picture motifs – are special witnesses of their time. Whether from the time of the German Empire or the young Federal Republic, coin-operated machines were part of everyday life even back then and thus became part of the motifs on the cards.
Come with us, stroll through the paths of German history and discover fascinating vending machines and their locations of the past.
