Capella de la Torre: Renaissance meets Jazz, Concert on Easter Monday

Capella de la Torre: Renaissance meets Jazz, Concert on Easter Monday

Dsc 2668 capella 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.

Exkkursionen 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.

Family Businesses as a Phenomenon

Margarete steiff bei der arbeit  archiv der margarete steiff gmbh 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.
