What is it that continues to intrigue us in stories and testimonies of exile? The Young Museum was initiated by the German Literature Archive Marbach and is a collaborative project of the virtual exhibition Arts in Exile. In this division, one finds the results of those projects in which children and teenagers themselves researched in exile collections (on-site and on-line) and then designed their own virtual exhibition.
The Young Museum wants to call upon imitation and thus grow through its visitors: high school and university students, teachers and lecturers can embed in this section of the virtual exhibition their own projects. Like this, they are able to utilize this space with new formats!
The presented projects shall give you some first ideas; also one finds on these sites learning materials and contact details of network partners offering their support. In September 2013, the projects Mascha Kaléko on-line, Konrad Merz - A Man Falls Out of Germany, Matters of Exile and Between Worlds − Oskar Pastior were activated. Those four projects were developed by the DLA Marbach together with high school students.
Since the 7th of March 2014, the project Exile Online. Experiencing the Archive - Discovering Exile − Understanding History is online, which emerged from a workshop with high school students at the German Exile Archive 1933-1945 in the German National Library in Frankfurt/ Main.
