Verblichen, aber nicht verschwunden

Eine Spurensuche im Böhmerwald

Die Beziehungen zwischen Deutschen und Tschechen sind inzwischen auf eine gemeinsame Zukunft ausgerichtet, die gemeinsame Geschichte gestaltete sich aber nicht konfliktfrei. Ein Forschungsverbund aus Einrichtungen an den Universitäten Regensburg, Passau, Prag und Ústí nad Labem (Aussig) sowie dem Kulturreferenten für die böhmischen Länder im Adalbert Stifter Verein widmet sich seit 2017 dem Thema Grenze/n in nationalen und transnationalen Erinnerungskulturen zwischen Tschechien und Bayern und hat dabei auch den wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchs im Blick.

Eine Exkursion mit Studierenden der genannten Universitäten ging in diesem Rahmen im Oktober 2019 den Spuren der ehemaligen deutschsprachigen Bevölkerung im Böhmerwald nach. Die Teilnehmer*innen wählten jeweils eine der dabei entstandenen Fotografien aus und verfassten dazu einen Text. Die zweisprachig deutsch-tschechische, auch in digitaler Form existierende Ausstellung zeigt alte Friedhöfe, Kirchen, Reste verschwundene Orte und neu gegründete Museen und entführt behutsam in eine vergangene Welt.

For this exhibition the Munich photographer Petra Flath took black-and-white photographs of 54 people originally from Bohemia, Moravia and Sudeten-Silesia. Some of them are famous, many have worked to promote German-Czech understanding in their professional lives, others in their private lives.

Artists, entrepreneurs, writers, scientists, politicians, folklorists, priests or journalists: Who are these Sudeten German, Czech and Jewish women and men from Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, who had the courage after decades of political isolation and personal separation to reopen difficult conversations, to make forgotten knowledge accessible again, to build up new friendships and work for a new atmosphere of confidence and trust?

Every photograph is accompanied by a short biography, a concise quote and the handwriting of the depicted person.

Muses to the front!

Writers and Artists Working for Austro-Hungarian War Propaganda

“Inter arma silent musae.” The famous saying about the silence of the muses during war is based on the ideal of art as a product only of the human mind, untouched by blood and violence. In reality, no battles were ever fought without writers and artists having their say about them.

The magnitude and consequences of the First World War exceeded those of all previous wars; even at the time people called it the “Great War”. The number of countries involved, the number of soldiers fighting on different fronts, the millions of victims and the extent of the destruction justify this term. Furthermore, military technology that had not been used before was used for the first time: gas, aeroplanes, armoured combat vehicles, heavy artillery, but also war propaganda as a way of influencing public opinion and thus fighting "by other means".

For propaganda purposes a "War Press Quarter" (KPQ) was founded as a special facility of the High Command of the Austro-Hungarian army, which provided the press with reports on the war. An particularly large number of journalists and artists joined the KPQ, including well-known writers such as Roda Roda, Egon Erwin Kisch, Leo Perutz, Richard A. Bermann (Arnold Höllriegel), Ferenc Molnár, Robert Michel, Franz Werfel or artists such as Oskar Laske, Oskar Kokoschka, Ferdinand Staeger, Ludwig Hesshaimer, Albin Egger-Lienz. Among other things a photography and film unit was set up to report on the war, as well as a theatre and music department and even a censorship unit, which monitored all information and decided what was to be published.

At the same time, a “literary group” was created in the Vienna War Archives, which documented the war and promoted the cause of the Empire through journalism. Franz Theodor Csokor, Rudolf Hans Bartsch, Franz Karl Ginzkey, Felix Salten, Stefan Zweig, Rainer Maria Rilke, Alfred Polgar (Polak) worked in this group.

Both the KPQ and the “Literary Group” offered many journalists, writers and artists the opportunity to avoid military service and to take on a job in making war propaganda whether with pen, brush or camera.

The exhibition and the accompanying publication show the deliberate or unconscious part literature and art played in the First World War. It describes both the wavering of artists and intellectuals between patriotism and pacifism as well as their voluntary engagement with the war. Many different attitudes towards war become apparent when comparing the different personalities, but diverse phases and changes can also be observed within individual biographies.

Some of the writers and artists serving the Austro-Hungarian war propaganda came from Bohemia and Moravia; special attention is paid to these in the exhibition.

Plakate aus dem Ghetto Theresienstadt

Kunst und Kultur in Theresienstadt 1941-45

Die Ausstellung zeigt selbstgestaltete Veranstaltungsplakate von Häftlingen des als „Ghetto“ bezeichneten Theresienstädter Konzentrationslagers, mit denen sie zu Opernaufführungen, Kabarettvorstellungen, klassischen und modernen Konzerten, Chorabenden und wissenschaftlichen Vorträgen einluden. Obwohl sie unter menschenunwürdigen Umständen dahinvegetierten und ihre Situation ausweglos war, fanden sie Zeit und Kraft für kulturelle Aktivitäten und setzten damit im Angesicht des Todes ein Zeichen gegen die Entmenschlichung. Dank der Vermittlung des Historikers Dr. Rudolf Wlaschek, Mönchengladbach, konnten in dieser Ausstellung erstmals deutschsprachige Plakate aus der sogenannten Hermann-Sammlung in Theresienstadt ausgestellt werden.
