1914

An extensive programme in 15 cities reminds the First World War

“The desire to have a death of one’s own is becoming more and more rare. In a short while it will be as rare as a life of one’s own.” Rainer Maria Rilke (1910).

The NRW KULTURsekretariat is promoting a considerable total of 24 programmes and projects in 15 member cities in 2014. All of them deal with the art and culture of 1914 and thus focus on the time at which the First World War began. The spectrum of formats ranges from concerts and theatre performances to film programmes and lectures through to exhibitions and interdisciplinary mediation offerings. Beyond the historic aspect, our present day and perspectives for the future also move into the focus of attention.
The city of Aachen is designing a multi-part exhibition programme with guided tours and workshops. The Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf is organising an exhibition and colloquium cooperation of the cities of Bonn, Düsseldorf and Cologne. Incorporated into an extensive exhibition series of the LVR is the literary-musical-artistic supporting programme of the city of Düsseldorf. The city of Essen offers exhibitions as well as presentations, symposia, concerts and a programme of films. The cities of Hagen and Recklinghausen are concentrating their activities on lectures and concerts, with the focus being on Expressionism, and Krefeld augments the state-wide lecture programme. While Mönchengladbach builds a bridge to the present day with its cycle of exhibitions and events, Neuss is devoting itself in particular to the year of 1914 marking the dawn of a new epoch with a project of cultural history and music. Theatrical works can be experienced in Oberhausen and Wuppertal. The music and performance project “Zehn Märsche (um den Sieg zu verfehlen)” (Ten marches (in order to miss victory)) by Cologne artist Rochus Aust will be performed in several cities, including Bochum, Dortmund, Duisburg and Cologne.

In addition, the suite of “The Soldier's Tale” by Igor Stravinsky, produced by the Kultursekretariat for its cities, will be performed within the scope of several of these diverse projects under the musical direction of Heinz Friedl. The semi-staged version of this travelling play from the year 1917 is supplemented with text recitals and was created together with the musician and project artist Rochus Aust.
