About the Vil­la today

Arrived in the 21st Century

The Present

Now, in 2020 the Vil­la Selig­mann is con­nec­ting the past and the pre­sent, the sac­red and the pro­fa­ne. As a place of free thin­king and open hearts, the Vil­la sees its­elf as a vehi­cle for the crea­ti­on of inter­cul­tu­ral rela­ti­ons­hip, spea­king the com­mon lan­guage of music. 
Inspi­red by the rich cul­tu­ral heri­ta­ge of Juda­ism this will be expres­sed by mode­ra­ted con­certs, musi­cal rea­dings, gui­ded tours through the house, lec­tures, work­shops and exhi­bi­ti­ons. By this way the Vil­la covers a wide span, geo­gra­phi­cal­ly and by con­tents, of the com­ple­xi­ty of Jewish life.

In the Euro­pean con­text of the 21st cen­tu­ry, the Vil­la is dedi­ca­ted to pass on com­mon values in a dia­lo­gue with the young genera­ti­on. In coope­ra­ti­on with other cul­tu­ral orga­ni­sa­ti­ons, the Vil­la Selig­mann stands for over­co­m­ing distance by the lan­guage of music, get­ting rid of ant­ago­nisms, buil­ding brid­ges and recon­ci­ling people.
