Kurt Landauer Fan Shop

October 7 through 26, 2014
Installation in the Foyer
An installation on the transmedia project LANDAUER by BR, ARD Degeto, WDR and Zeitsprung Pictures


Kurt Landauer has made Bavarian soccer history. He led FC Bayern München to its first German championship title in 1932. Bayerisches Fernsehen now honors the lifetime achievement of the President of Bayern München, next to a world of experience to the myth Landauer on the web, with a feature film  and a documentary, which will be broadcast in October. Within this context, the Jewish Museum Munich is opening a temporary “Fan Shop” on this well-known Munich figure.


Born in 1884 in Planegg, Kurt Landauer played for FC Bayernsince 1901 and became its President for the first time in 1913. After the National Socialists seized power in 1933, Landauer was forced to resign as President due to his Jewish background. He survived the Shoah in exile in Geneva, whereas his siblings, Paul, Franz, Leo, and Gabriele were murdered. Kurt Landauer was one of the few emigrants, who—despite their painful experiences—returned to their native country after 1945 and stayed. “His soccer club", FC Bayern, provided a link to his life prior to 1933 and he went on to become its President once again.


For fans of the FC Bayern President and every one interested, historical objects as well as props from the motion picture highlight different facets of Kurt Landauer—the enthusiastic soccer fan, the Bavarian, and the Jew. In addition, the "Landauer-app" of the Bayerische Rundfunk can be downloaded with virtual visits to key and to explore sites in Kurt Landauer’s life in Munich against the background of the historical context.


An installation in cooperation with the FC Bayern Erlebniswelt and the Bayerische Rundfunk.
Free TV premiere on Das Erste, October 15, 2014, 8.15 pm.
