Exhibit on Press and Presidential Elections Open to Enthusiasm

Some 70 people gathered to open the Exhibit on “Media, Power, and the White House” on Monday, 28 April. The project is co-sponsored by the Department of Communication Studies and the Institute for American Studies. Generous funding for the exhibit has been provided by the American Consulate in Leipzig.

Under the supervision of Dr. Gerhard Piskol, a specialist in comparative journalism, and Professor Emeritus Hartmut Keil from American Studies, the exhibit was constructed by ten students over several months.

The exhibit was received with warm enthusiasm by those attending the opening. The tableaus created illustrated the historical and multifaceted relationship between the media and the conduct of presidential elections in the United States.
