Visit to Exhibition “Imagine John Lennon” in Heidelberg


On 21 June, ten students of F+U Academy of Languages visited the “Imagine John Lennon” exhibition at the Kurpfälzisches Museum in Heidelberg.

The exhibition traced the life and work of one of the most influential personalities in pop history – John Lennon, from his early days with The Beatles, his solo career and his relationship with Yoko Ono, to his tragic end in New York in 1980. On show were drawings, photos, song lyrics, poems and videos that gave a deep insight into Lennon, the artist as opposed to the better known Lennon, the musician. The exhibition also demonstrated how, for two decades, he moved millions of people with his music and provided political inspiration to an entire generation.

The visiting group was made up of students from Ireland, Spain, Japan, Brazil and Uzbekistan with an age range from twenty to fifty, reflecting Lennon's timeless appeal. “The students thoroughly enjoyed the visit,” says teacher Neville Attree, who accompanied the visit. “Most knew him for his music but had no idea about the personal journey he went on and we all stayed to the very end of the documentary film about his life.”

“It was a very nice afternoon,” says Kyoko Neuss, in charge of cultural activities at F+U Academy of Languages. “The students had the chance to spend time together outside of their lessons and the exhibition was both stimulating and informative.” The mix of English and German source material meant that everyone found something they could read or understand. There was a lot of discussion afterwards about how interesting the exhibition was and several students asked about similar outings planned in the future.
