Our head of the museum, Hansgeorg Hauser, was awarded the Rheinlandtaler “as a patron of Krefeld culture” at an impressively festive event. “Hansgeorg Hauser is a doer with moderator qualities,” headlines the Westdeutsche Zeitung (WZ) and writes: “Hauser is a team player who can forge networks; earlier in my job and to this day for art. In addition, the head of the House of Silk Culture likes private initiatives that preserve valuables. That's why he wanted the Uerdinger sewage treatment plant as the venue for his honor."
And there came with LVR director Ulrike Lubek and deputy chairwoman Karin Schmitt-Promny (photo) the head of the regional association Rhineland highest self. Around 130 guests celebrated the festive event with Hauser, which was accompanied by music from Stephan Langenberg and his bandoneon. "A Krefeld instrument that became known worldwide - not least because of the tango in Argentina," as Krefeld Mayor Frank Meyer stated in his welcoming speech.
The graduates of the nutrition department of the Vera Beckers vocational college took care of the epicurean part. In this all-round successful event, Hauser (83) also said: "I am very happy about the award, which I accept on behalf of everyone!" If you want to listen to this top-class event in the truest sense of the word, in our podcast - here under the News/Podcast section – is that possible.
