We are very excited for year’s annual conference at the Jewish Museum Frankfurt.
This year, the Annual Conference has been conceptually divided into two main conference formats: The Plenary Sessions and Professional Sessions.
All Plenary Sessions are aimed at a broader interested audience and will be livestreamed on Sunday, June 19 and on Monday, June 20 on the AEJM website and the Museum’s YouTube account.
AEJM’s upcoming Annual Conference, will be kindly hosted by Jewish Museum Frankfurt:
The Jewish Museum Frankfurt is the first communal Jewish museum in post-war Germany. It enables people to experience the diversity of Jewish culture throughout history and in the present. To this end, it collects, preserves and researches cultural assets and testimonies of Jewish life in Frankfurt and reflects them in a European perspective. With its art and cultural history exhibitions, educational programs and digital offerings, as well as its joy in experimental formats, the Jewish Museum Frankfurt aims to be a museum without walls.
Both of the Jewish Museum’s locations are of tremendous importance to the city’s Jewish history. The permanent exhibitions in Museum Judengasse and the Rothschild Palace underscore Frankfurt’s significance as a centre of European Jewish life from the Middle Ages until annihilation during the Shoah. The new beginning and the presence of Jewish life in Frankfurt are the starting point for both exhibitions.
The museum’s work is based on the conviction that Jewish cultures are of central importance to European societies. The Jewish experience of discrimination and violence as well as its struggle for equality under law and social participation is now as current as ever. Against this background, we hope to stimulate intercultural understanding and self-reflection. We see our work as networked action in the digital as well as in the social realm and aim our efforts at ensuring the further existence of open, enlightened and civilised societies in Europe in whose midst Jews want and can continue to live a prosper culturally.
The 2022 AEJM conference is kindly supported by the David Berg Foundation (NY)
