The Art of Remembrance – Alice Salomon
In the Berlin House of Representatives, artist DESSA (Deborah Petroz Abeles) presents the life and work of Alice Salomon in a series of multimedia artworks in the Wandelhalle. The visual biography takes place on the occasion of Alice Salomon's 150th birthday and aims to preserve German-Jewish past and culture as a living, effective part of our society today.
Alice Salomon was a liberal social reformer in the German women's movement and a pioneer of social work as a science. In 1925, she founded the "German Academy for Social and Educational Women's Work". She was forced into emigration to New York by the Gestapo in 1937 and died there - alone - in 1948.
After visiting the exhibition, we make a detour to the beautiful roof terrace of the Humboldt Forum, from which one has a wide view over Berlin.
