  • The Kunstmuseum in Bonn is the most visited Museum of the Federal Republic of Germany with recurrent exhibitions of all arts and concerts and other performances in the "concert hall" of the House. The Museum has several floors an appealing architecture with spacious, modern equipped foyer and exhibition spaces. Here, the 3rd Beethoven Prize in honour of Wolfgang Niedecken in a concert of the Festival was celebrated on the 19.12.2017. Wolfgang Niedecken (66) is the title was awarded to the Beethoven Prize for human rights. He was not as pop musician honored but because of his social commitment. The BAP singer outer always explicitly to political issues and hold position, publicly told the Beethoven Academy in Bonn. The success was not bent him. He committed himself against right-wing extremism, nuclear energy, nuclear weapons, poverty and justice. So he was co-initiator of the initiative "ass huh, Zäng ussenander" and founder of a project that is trying to the reintegration of former child soldiers. His attitude come also in songs such as "Kristallnaach" or "Vision vun Europe" to the expression. Beethoven prize of €10,000 was awarded for the third time this year. The first two winners were the Syrian Palestinian pianist Aeham Ahmad, who played piano in the ruins of Damascus, and the Turkish star pianist and civil rights activist Fazil say. The planned eulogy to say by can Dündar was been canceled last year after the Turkish journalist in the Internet was been violently rejected. Many well-known artists contributed their artistic contributions, including the Argentine star pianist Martha Argerich in the framework programme. Apart from visiting the exhibitions and concerts, a visit is an event alone because of the appealing architecture of every time. Highly recommended! mumeco on December 19, 2017
