Conference: The Bertramka – A German Perspective

Under the auspices of the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany H. E. Dr. Christoph Israng and as part of the Strategy AV21 research programme “Memory in the Digital Age”, the Institute of Art History, Czech Academy of Sciences, together with the Mozart Society in the Czech Republic and with the support of the Technical University in Munich, is organising an exhibition and international conference under the title “The Bertramka – A German Perspective (1942)”. The conference will take place on 22 June 2019 in the Bertramka villa, where an exhibition will also be installed, with facsimiles of nearly 100 previously unknown drawings, plans, and sketches of the Bertramka from the years 1925 and 1942–1943 that have been found in the Architecture Museum at the Technical University in Munich. They are the work of Professor Georg Buchner (1890‒1971) and his advanced students from the Academy of Applied Arts in Munich. The exhibition also contains Buchner’s distinctive drawings and sketches of parts of Prague, as well as a number of contemporary photographs. The curators responsible for the exhibition are Milada Jonášová and Prof. Manfred Hermann Schmid (University of Tübingen), who discovered the collection. Because of the limited capacity of the concert hall in the Bertramka villa, you are asked to confirm your interest in attending the conference to the address jonasova@udu.cas.cz by 19 June 2019. Attendance at the vernissage is by invitation only. The exhibition will be open to the public on 23 June 2019 and other dates, which will be published on the Mozart Society website at http://www.bertramka.eu.
