In Europa steigen die Zahlen der an Covid-19 Erkrankten schnell an. Dies wird vorerst so weitergehen, außerdem naht die „Grippesaison“. Das über den Sommer zeitweilig etwas in den Hintergrund gerückte Wörtchen „systemrelevant“ wird demnächst vermutlich wieder öfter bemüht werden. Aber vielleicht geht es auch ohne dieses Wörtchen?
The DARIAH Theme is a bi-annual area of focus for investment by the DARIAH Board of Directors. For 2020, we have selected two streams of funding ‘Arts Exchanges’ and ‘Arts, Humanities and COVID-19’ as our fifth theme.
Theme 1: DARIAH Arts Exchanges
With this call, we would like to explore what the current DARIAH knowledge base has to offer arts practitioners researchers, encourage institutional and organisational DARIAH partners within local and national DARIAH nodes to embark on collaborative projects with artists and grow our understanding of the infrastructural requirements of this community with regards to the technologies they use.
The most common format for such an engagement would be the artistic residency but we also welcome other models in the scheme, which may include arts-led events, user needs assessment exercises and engagements, and/or small scale commissions to artists, so long as the focus on mutual learning, infrastructure, and the DARIAH network and assets presents a clear central added value for the project.
Artists and creators from any field and in any medium or professional role are welcome to participate in these applications with one or more DARIAH national network members. We therefore invite members of the DARIAH community interested in exploring how the arts can help them to communicate, envigorate or expand their work to submit proposals for this scheme.
Der „schwedische Weg“, so schreibt GEORG BAUER im Gastbeitrag, wird seit Beginn der Covid-19-Krise intensiv diskutiert, bis heute. Dabei wurde und wird vieles falsch verstanden – vor allem aber lenkt es von viel wichtigeren Diskussionen ab. Ansichten eines hobbyepidemiologisch veranlagten Skandinavisten.
As the anniversary of V-E Day arrives, another museum in Berlin finds itself changing the way it observes. The German-Russian Museum is the center of May 8th commemorations in Berlin. In 2020, this historic museum is taking action to ensure that its commemoration is accessible even from the home.
The German-Russian Museum is housed in a circa-1936 building in Berlin-Karlshorst. The building began its life as the mess hall of a Wehrmacht military engineer school, but became known internationally on May 8, 1945 as the place of Nazi Germany’s surrender at the end of the Second World War. In a ceremony held in the school’s central hall, Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel of the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht signed the German Instruments of Surrender. The document officializing the capitulation was accepted and signed by Soviet Marshal Georgi Zhukov and British Air Chief Marshal Sir Arthur Tedder, with Generals Carl Spaatz of the United States and Jean de Lattre de Tassigny of France signing as witnesses. The building subsequently served as the headquarters of the Soviet Military Administration in Germany, and in the 1960s became the “Museum of Unconditional Surrender of Fascist Germany in the Great Patriotic War.” The museum was organized and operated by the Soviet military and presented the history of the German-Soviet war.
