After the summer break, our highlights in the world of art invite you to join us in restarting cultural life this autumn: Berlin Art Week will take place 9-13 September 2020 and European Month of Photography will start on 1 October 2020! Considering the Corona pandemic, the decentral concepts and new digital forms of access will allow exhibitions and events with a wide variety of participating partner institutions all over the city.
We invite you to embark on a digital journey through time to spring 1945: on 8 May 2020, we commemorated the end of World War II and the liberation of Europa from Nazi tyranny for the 75th time. With a digital theme week, we remember the tyranny of the Nazi regime and its lasting consequences and acknowledge the achievements of the Allies in liberating Europe from Nazi rule. Visiting key locations in Berlin such as the Brandenburg Gate and the Pariser Platz, the virtual exhibition “To Berlin and Beyond” as well as the augmented reality app "Augmented Berlin" and the podcast series "To Berlin and Beyond" demonstrate the topic’s contemporary significance. Thus, history can be experienced also in times of social distancing. All information on www.75jahrekriegsende.berlin/en/.
Our consulting centre, including the Cultural Funding Point and Creative Industries Consulting, is expanding its consulting and online services.
