Open Virtual Museum

The “Open Virtual Museum” is an important part of the online exhibition “Seven Places” of the United Nations and the Center for Persecuted Arts in Solingen. Various events are announced here that deal with current Jewish life in the communities and give you as a visitor the opportunity to interact directly with the participants in the exhibition. As a memorial or museum, you can announce your current projects, exhibitions, readings, lectures, and concerts as part of the culture of remembrance.
The “Open Virtual Museum” can be used not only by the 7 locations in Germany, but by all cooperation partners worldwide. Events in Poland and Israel are announced as soon as the online exhibition opens. Users have the option of participating virtually live in these events. Later, after they have been carried out, they move into the chronology of the retrospective and continual timeline. The “Open Virtual Museum” is growing continuously.


Outcry of Art: „... and to say loudly: No.“ - „... und laut zu sagen: Nein.“

Outcry of Art: ... and to say loudly: NO.

Outcry of Art: ... and to say loudly: No.

All three exhibitions at the Center for Persecuted Arts in the spring and summer of 2021 are subsumed under the Tucholsky quote “… and to say loudly: No.” Kurt Tucholsky published his somber prophetic admonition in 1921: “Nothing is more difficult, and nothing requires more character than to find oneself in open opposition to one’s time (and those one loves) and to say loudly: No!” All three exhibitions present strategies for preserving individuality under the conditions of the murderous dictatorship of the Nazi system, for resisting appropriation by National Socialism, and for loudly or quietly saying “No”.
