Adult High School "Aenne Biermann" in Gera
The local centre for adult education
Gera’s Volkshochschule (high school for adult education) with its over 50-year old tradition since its re-opening in 1946/47 is a place for communication and life-long learning, which many of Gera’s citizens make use of.
In December 2009, the 90th anniversary of the high school’s founding was the right occasion for giving it the name „Volkshochschule Aenne Biermann“. Aenne Biermann became nationally popular and respected as an outstanding artist through her photographic work.
Having been given this name, the Volkshochschule commits to preserve and pass on the artistic and humanitarian heritage of Biermann. The name brings with it an obligation towards offering sophisticated and broadly diversified course programmes, especially in regards to art and culture courses. The field of media works is developing further, so it can be implemented also outside of the school. The course programmes in photography are constantly being extended and qualified. Photograph exhibitions, workshops and expert meetings at regular intervals are complementing the courses.
The many courses of the programmes for each season are always very versatile and address all citizens interested in education, irrespective of their social background, gender or nationality.
