LandsbergHistoryApp – it starts!
The first reports of participation came from experts on early history in the Landsberg district.
Now citizens of Landsberg who would like to contribute to the history of the last decades are getting in touch.
The LandsbergHistoryApp is already creating a very special demand and offer, although the start is planned for December.
Today, 680 high quality slides from 1975 to 1985 of an archive on the history of building have been made available.
The slides provide interesting and impressive insights into the public building measures of Landsberg am Lech.
This material will be scanned and viewed and will provide unknown insights on the theme “Building History and Architecture”.
Backgrounds and to this and other materials will be published after the expert examination.
First of all we say thank you very much!

2020-1945: A CURRENT INVENTORY OF THE LANDSBERG CULTURE OF REMEMBRANCE
*** The exhibition has been expanded and extended until 31.12.2020 ***
The exhibition shows the invisible and yet present.
75 years after the end of the Second World War.
EXPANSION FROM 1.11.2020
The exhibition has been extended and now also shows the 360° documentation of the exhibition “From Lithuania to Landsberg”.
This exhibition by Karla Schönebeck (idea, concept and text) and Wolfgang Hauck (design and realisation) was shown at the “Wolf Durmashkin Composition Award” 2018 in Landsberg and afterwards at Boston College in Boston (USA).
“The exhibition ‘From Lithuania to Landsberg’ is a search for traces, in the course of which the paths of victims and perpetrators cross several times and, last but not least, come full circle at the Lech River.” Karla Schönebeck
PERSPECTIVE OF THE EXHIBITION 2020-1945
For some, a long time ago, for others just over and still much too close.
How does a city and its society deal with the culture of memory?
What is visible, what is not?
What is done, what is omitted?
What is conscious, what unconscious?
What is there without being visible?
The digital exhibition rooms open up online, 3D animations invite discovery through VR glasses.
In this way, a digital exhibition that is not really there can still be experienced.
Can this virtual reality be an image of our collective memory?
Step into a room that is only apparently empty and decide for yourself!
The exhibition is free of charge.

IDEA, CONCEPT AND REALISATION
Virtual experience spaces by Wolfgang Hauck
On 27 March Wolfgang Hauck opened the exhibition at 6:30 pm.
The speech was broadcast live on a YouTube channel.
Due to exit restrictions it was not possible for the invited guests to be directly on site, but about 60 people followed the opening live via streaming. Now you can watch the recording of the opening at any time.
Virtual openings like this one will be seen more often during the Corona pandemic. This is a successful example of how we can design and run cultural events despite the current restrictions.
But the digital format of this exhibition, which was designed for VR (virtual reality) glasses and as an online presentation, is also out of the ordinary. This also makes the opening a premiere for a new genre.
The theme of the current stocktaking of the culture of memory is particularly suitable for negotiating the problems of a culture of memory in the age of a collective memory that is constantly expanding digitally.
Wolfgang Hauck’s exhibition does not provide a solution, but rather identifies many more omissions and deficiencies, and also objectively points out the wilderness and dangers of the digital legacy.
At the same time he demonstrates with his use of digital means, a way to develop a historical and cultural awareness and to integrate it into the regular anniversaries of remembrance.
