Michael Rogatchi has been invited to participate at a big international event in Lithuania, the International Days of Jewish Culture in Zagare, in September 2015. In the current year of 2015, Zagare has become the Culture Capital of Lithuania, and the organising committee of this special program has been busy with many interesting cultural events.
In September 2015, the cultural capital of Lithuania will celebrate various aspects of Jewish culture, coinciding with the European Day of Jewish Culture celebrated in all EU member states.
Zagare has a special connotation in Jewish history. The place was predominantly Jewish, with many leading cultural and scientific figures originating from there, such as the Mandelshtam and Kikoin families, and the writer Nadine Gordimer.
During the Second World War, the entire Jewish population of Zagare was exterminated. To bring the International Days of Jewish Culture to this very place is quite meaningful, from both organisers and participants’ points of view.
Michael Rogatchi will show the new edition of his famed Libertango series prints – Libertango. Edition 2015.
