A project team from the Siemens Arts Program, media artist Alexander Stublić and pianist Annika Treutler have made it their mission to raise awareness of the music of composer Viktor Ullmann, who was ostracized by the National Socialists and whose music is not well known today. To this end, they explore new audiovisual possibilities for the concert recording.

In 1942, due to his parentsʼ Jewish heritage, Ullmann was deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp, where he created a lot of his works. He was murdered in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in 1944.

The culmination of the Viktor Ullmann Project is an artistically and technically sophisticated new 3D audio recording of the Piano Concerto Opus 25 by Viktor Ullmann. This was transferred to the virtual reality media art installation Innerland using film footage. It will be made available to the public for the first time at the Jewish Museum Berlin (JMB) on the anniversary of the liberation of the Theresienstadt concentration camp.
