Almost forgotten today, the art collector and banker Hugo Simon was a key figure of interwar Berlin. The diversity of his cultural, political, and economic interests and his corresponding advocacy placed Simon at the center of a unique network of intellectuals. This was also apparent at his two homes, a villa in Berlin’s Tiergarten district and an estate at Seelow im Oderbruch.

Besides being private sanctuaries for their owner, these residences served as social meeting places that brought people together; exhibitions spaces for modern and classical art; and forums for discussion. Together with the curator, Dr. Anna-Dorothea Ludewig, you will have an opportunity to retrace this history and rediscover Hugo Simon’s life and work.
