Apocalyptic conceptions of the end of the world have fascinated mankind for centuries. This exhibition brings together Julian Rosefeldt’s (*1965) video work “In the Land of Drought”, Albrecht Dürer’s (1471–1528) illustrations for the Book of Revelation, and eschatological proclamations of the theologian Jean Gerson (1363–1429).
In the concert, Capella de la Torre goes on a search for the roots of jazz and brings old music and contemporary improvisation together. New worlds of sound are created: unfamiliar, enthralling, and fascinating, even though they have actually already existed since the early modern era. Just as the musicians of the 16th century carried away and inspired their listeners, this also happens now in the present.
The Reformation of 1517 took place not only in Wittenberg, on the Wartburg, or in front of the Imperial Diet. The Reformation had sweeping consequences for the entire Christian world, consequences that can also be found in the Tecklenburger Land, in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Osnabrück, and in the Diocese of Münster. We are therefore setting off on a search for traces to sites connected with the Reformation in our home region.
The cabinet exhibition follows the tracks of Martin Luther. It presents printed matter from the then-new spirit of the times – from the first printed bible, the “Gutenberg Bible”, which was still written in the Latin language, to the first Bible printed in the German language prior to Luther’s new translation, the “Mentelin Bible”, to the final version by Luther, the “Luther Bible”.
Parallel to the special exhibition Family Businesses as a Phenomenon, the cabinet exhibition is dedicated to the topic of ‘eating and cooking’. In it, that very central, everyday event – shared meals together – is at the centre of the presentation, which also approaches the topic from the perspective of cultural history.
The exhibition 'Family Businesses as a Phenomenon: Insights – Overviews' approaches the subject of family businesses from a novel perspective – allowing business figures and their families to 'speak' for themselves: letters, memoirs, wills, and business protocols from the late 18th century to the 1960s afford insights into the motives behind the actions of businesspeople and their family members. In 25 very personal stories, taken from 13 different family businesses, the goals, desires, and obligations of the various stakeholders come to life and prove to be surprisingly contemporary.
The collection of drawings, prints, and books of the Liberna Collection forms the starting point for this exhibition. Devoted to images of the Holy Family in everyday surroundings, the show features works from the Middle Ages to the 19th century.
