An Exhibition Tour for Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin at the Brazilian Embassy
Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin visit the Hugo Simon exhibition at the Brazilian Embassy. They have the opportunity to follow his tracks and to rediscover Hugo Simon's life and work, together with the curator, Dr. Anna-Dorothea Ludewig.
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.
