ABOUT

An Invitation by James Simon

To this day, numerous world-class works of art and archaeological objects adorn the cabinets and exhibition halls of Berlin's Museum Island, bestowed to the museums by the Berlin art collector and philantrophist James Simon (1851-1932). Amongst the many treasures he has donated, the world renowened bust of Nefertiti is still one of the highlights of the Berlin museums. But how did James Simon, a cotton manufacturer who was interested in the Italian Renaissance, medieval german art and the Egyptian and mesopothanian archaeology, lead his life surrounded by this exceptional art collection?

The VR Experience "ZU GAST BEI JAMES SIMON - an invitation by James Simon" will showcase the inside of his private mansion in Berlin's Tiergarten district and offers deeper insights into the collection through a personal encounter with James Simon. The duration of the experience will be about 15 min.

ZU GAST BEI JAMES SIMON is a co-production between LUPA FILM (Berlin) and AMILUX FILM (Vienna), funded by medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, the James Simon Foundation and is in cooperation with the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz.

SYNOPSIS

Walter Cole, aka Darcelle XV, is the world‘s oldest living and performing drag queen.

She’s won a Guinness World Record and an Emmy for her vivacious performances that showcase humor, glitz, and yes, even a pair of bedazzled glowing chaps!

At 87 years old, Darcelle shows no signs of slowing down. She continues to wow audiences with her weekly performances, and advocacy for the LGBTQ community is always part of the mix. Such work is nothing new for Darcelle, who has been an integral part of the gay-rights movement in Portland, Oregon since the 1970’s.

“Through Darcelle’s Eyes” will introduce audiences to the life and journey of a legendary performer who braved discrimination and never backed down. Through interviews with Darcelle, performance footage, and creatively staged animations of Portland‘s past, this timeless film preserves and honors the history of one of world‘s most cherished performers, the one and only Darcelle XV.
