On Sunday, 10 September 2023, the Alexander Haus Association celebrates its 10th anniversary and invites you to the “Tag des offenen Denkmals” (Open Monument Day) with a diverse programme. We are pleased to be on site with DialoguePerspectives as well.
From 12 to 3 p.m., we will give insights into the work of DialoguePerspectives and into the methods of a society-oriented interreligious-ideological dialogue. For this purpose, we will use BRAVE SPACE, the temporary learning and encounter space in the garden of Alexander Haus, which was developed by architect Jan Bodenstein and opened in 2021 on the occasion of the CPPD event “Remembering in Relation”.
Together with the local community and regional, national and European partners, DialoguePerspectives e.V. is developing the Alexander Haus into a unique place of remembrance, learning and discourse for encounters and impact-oriented interreligious-ideological dialogue.
For several years now, dialogue projects, events and workshops with European participants of DialoguePerspectives. Discussing Religion and Worldviews. take place at Alexander Haus.
We are looking forward to celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Alexander Haus Association together. Visitors can expect a varied program from guided tours to acrobatic performances – more information here.
About Alexander Haus:
The Alexander Haus was built in 1927 as a summer house for the Alexander family from Berlin. After the Jewish family was forced to flee to England in 1936, Will Meisel, publisher and NSDAP member, moved into the house until 1952. Between 1953 and 2003, several families lived there at the same time, while in 1961 the house was separated from the lake by the construction of the Berlin Wall across the grounds. After 2003, the house fell into disrepair due to vacancy and vandalism. The British journalist and author Thomas Harding (“Das Sommerhaus am See”), great-grandson of Alfred Alexander, began researching the history of the house in 2013 and founded the Alexander Haus e. V. with committed citizens of Groß Glienicke. The Alexander Haus was awarded the German Prize for Monument Protection in 2023.

˝Thanks to DialoguePerspectives I have encountered inspiring people who have expanded, and also completely changed, my understanding of religion, engagement, and encounter. The interdisciplinarity of the programme combined with the high standards everyone holds each other to have made DialoguePerspectives a formative experience for me.
