A Virtual Reality Media Art Installation by Alexander Stublić

With virtual reality and immersive sound technology, the media artist Alexander Stublić has created interactive, explorable surreal worlds in which notes emerge synesthetically, beam forests pass by, and concert stages complete with deconstructed orchestra are reassembled to form new perspectives before the viewer.

9 to 22 May 2022 (except 12 May)

The concert recording at its core is piano concerto Opus 25 by Viktor Ullmann. Because of his parentsʼ Jewish ancestry, the composer was deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp in 1942, where he created a lot of his works. He was murdered in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in 1944.

A project team from the Siemens Arts Program has made it their mission to raise awareness of the music of this composer, 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. The result of the Viktor Ullmann Project is an artistically and technically sophisticated new 3D audio recording of the piano concerto Opus 25. It was awarded the OPUS Classic in the category “Best Concert Recording.”

On the anniversary of the liberation of the Theresienstadt concentration camp, it will be made available to the public here at the Jewish Museum Berlin for the first time.
