About the Event

The Association of Transilvanian Saxons in Switzerland is organizing a Charity Dinner in favor of the Ukrainian refugees who are staying now in Romania. The event takes place at Marriott Hotel in Zurich on July 2nd, 2022.

Hundreds of refugees are receiving shelter and education for their children, being helped by the Evanghelical Church of the Saxons, in Romania. Numerous families are residing in some of the 800 years old church-fortresses that had been reactivated for this purpose.

With this occasion, the Association of Transylvanian Saxons in Switzerland and Sibiu founded by Kunsthaus 7B is organizing a charity auction with contemporary Transylvanian and International art.

The following artists are contributing to this event with their works:

-  Oana Ionel, Bucharest, Romania

- Bryn Marie Migliore, Lugano, Switzerland

- Armin Mühsam, Kansas City, USA

- Birgit Reiner, Bonn, Germany

- Bianca Aimée Turner, Los Angeles, USA

"We are very grateful to the generousity of our artists, who are donating their works and are supporting this idea" explains Thomas Emmerling, director of Kunsthaus 7B, and the auctioneer of the event. Mr. Emmerling is saying that "the proceeds of the auction will be shared to seven castles and institutions in Transylvania where refugees are living now".  Thomas Emmerling himself, belongs to the German speaking minority of Saxons in Transylvania. "All artists  are living in Romania or abroad, but do have strong spiritual connections to the Transylvanian land, and all stand with Ukrainian refugees."

In the near future we will publish more about the artworks for the auction. Stay tuned.
