Beethoven installation at VDNKh Park in Moscow

Right on time for the German national holiday, a Beethoven installation to celebrate the 250th birthday of the musician opened in the VDNKh Park in Moscow to mark the Year of Germany in Russia (2020/21).

The sculptures in gold and opal green will be on show in the park for a month before they travel through Russia and are later sold at an auction, the proceeds of which are intended to support a music festival.

The exhibition was made possible by the National Tourist Office of Germany in Russia, with the support of the German Embassy in Moscow, the Goethe Institute, the Moscow government and the VDNKh.

The concept of a "smiling Beethoven" is universally comprehensible – as is the music of the genius.
It is therefore no wonder that the sculptures can speak for themselves everywhere – regardless of languages and national borders. At the same time, they continue to question the image of the grumpy composer.

And all of a sudden, the fact that Beethoven might have smiled while writing the "Ode to Joy" becomes quite palpable ...

The sculptural project is on view at VDNKh Park in Moscow from 3 to 31 October 2020.
