Room of Remembrance for Johanna Klug
Since the fall of 2021, we have been working together with the agency for farewell design and selected funeral orators Wer Du Warst an einem Angebot für virtuelle Abschiede und Erinnerungen. Jetzt dürfen wir euch endlich mitteilen, was wir lange geplant und geheim gehalten haben: Der virtuelle Erinnerungsraum für die Sterbebegleiterin und Autorin Johanna Klug.
Virtual 3D Room of Remembrance
In a world that is becoming increasingly digital, how can we participate in ceremonies of farewell and remembrance? Financial, professional, health reasons or too great local distances can prevent personal participation. Therefore, there is a need for new location-independent forms of shared mourning. This is becoming more important than ever, especially in times of the worldwide COVID 19 pandemic.
With the first virtual 3D Room of Remembrance, mourners say goodbye to a loved one in a specially developed virtual ceremony. Like in a museum of life, stories are shared and memories exchanged. In addition, this room can be set in a state of memory so that mourners can return to this place of farewell, remembrance and exchange at any time.
The farvel project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and the European Social Fund as part of the EXIST programme.
The European Union's goal is to ensure that all people have a job perspective. The European Social Fund (ESF) improves employment opportunities, supports people through training and qualification and helps to reduce disadvantages in the labour market. More on the ESF at: www.esf.de.
From January to August 2021, the farvel project was funded by the Berlin Startup Scholarship at the Berlin University of the Arts. The Berlin Startup Scholarship is funded by the European Social Fund and the State of Berlin (Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Operations).
