Düsseldorf (dpa / lnw) - The corona lockdown has given the creativity of museums and stages on the Internet an immense boost.
Whether aerobics for at home instead of ballet on the stage, podcast experiments with old theater tapes or “Cloud Pope” Florian Illies, who explains Caspar David Friedrich's paintings with a zoom - the ideas bubble up despite the closed houses.
With live streaming, podcasts, 3D exhibition tours, digital conversation series and even game evenings, the cultural institutions are currently offering an unprecedented digital program.
As painful as the closure is, it also offers the «opportunity to further strengthen our digital presence and visibility and to develop new communication formats to reach people at home», says LWL head of cultural affairs, Barbara Rüschoff-Parzinger.
Despite lockdowns, "the museum is not standing still," says a spokeswoman for the Folkwang Museum in Essen.
"Lockdown causes even more work," says the Ludwig Museum in Cologne.
"The network opens up new freedom and scope," says the director of the Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus, Wilfried Schulz, of the German Press Agency (dpa).
"But I am skeptical as to whether an own art form of theater will develop on the Internet."
