But behind closed doors, creative artists and museums have opened up new channels of communication and presentation.
The new digital offers from museums and artists have been very well received in the past few weeks and have once again shown how important and above all how systemically relevant art and culture are for our society.
A lot will change for good.
The positive attitude of the art and cultural world of recognizing new opportunities in this crisis and seizing the associated opportunities to find new formats for communication and presentation is astonishing
Therefore, today we would like to present to you the second part of our creative contribution for friends of historical silver in everyday Corona.
Now we wish you exciting reading and great discoveries!
We would of course be very happy if you also browse our website.
