We got to know and appreciate Rudolf zur Lippe, emeritus professor of philosophy, artist and philanthropist, first through his paintings in the Werkstatt Gallery and later through his incredible Schöneberg district project “Beauty against Violence”: With baroque opera music by Handel and Purcell, he, together with the gallery and the “Stiftung Forum der Kulturen” Foundation, succeeded in counteracting the criminal activities of a gang, who in recent years have made “our” place at the corner of Eisenacher Strasse and Fuggerstrasse impassable for residents, with a positive energy of the most beautiful kind, namely through art and music. Rudolf Prinz zur Lippe died on 6.9.2019.
