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.

Concert for the opening of the expansion of Seven Places

For a year now, Seven Places in Germany has been showing not only the catastrophe of National Socialism and the destruction of Jewish life in Germany, but also its resurgence and the vivid culture of remembrance up to the present day. Now Seven Places is making the step from the digital world into reality and will also open as a real exhibition at the Goethe-Institut in Hong Kong on November 10.

To honor this special event, a concert was held: Persecuted Artists. Pursued Music with the Echospore Ensemble of the Cologne/Wuppertal University of Music and Dance. Here in the stream you can also participate in this very special moment.

The ensemble and the pieces performed show once again: even if the fate of the composers was dramatic, music always celebrates life. The artistic director is Prof. Dr. Florence Millet, and the international ensemble will perform compositions by Vitėslava Kaprálová, Viktor Ullmann, Pavel Haas, Anton Dvorak, Erwin Schulhoff, Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Maria Herz, Gideon Klein, Ilse Weber and Alexander Zemlinsky - all of whom were ostracized as human beings by the Nazis and forbidden to perform. The concert was made possible by the Lichterfeld Foundation.
