The cabinet exhibition delves into the fascinating world of printmaking, which in the 15th century gave the starting signal for a groundbreaking change through its novel form of disseminating images.
This exhibition is dedicated to the symbolic meanings of threads for man and human life. To this end, it combines works by contemporary women artists with historical tools of spinning and weaving, as well as with classical representations of selected Greco-Roman myths.
THE MIRROR OF PEACE
Following its exhibition at the 59th Biennale Arte in Venice as a collaboration between the Draiflessen Collection, the artist Renee van Bavel, and the Abbazia di San Giorgio Maggiore - Benedicti Claustra Onlus, THE MIRROR OF PEACE has now entered the museum’s permanent collection. 2023 marks the 375th anniversary of the Peace of Westphalia, signed in the cities of Münster and Osnabrück. To mark this occasion, THE MIRROR OF PEACE will be open to the public in the park at Draiflessen beginning on the 10th of May.
THE STATE OF AFFAIRS?
How can we (survive) in the age of rapid climate change? The Draiflessen Collection is addressing this pressing question and exploring the state of affairs. During the planned period, the museum will offer different event formats such as lectures, workshops and excursions.
For the first time the Draiflessen Collection presents a dual exhibition spanning multiple eras and dedicated to two aspects of the same artistic medium: the various facets of glass as a material for window design and the fragile and fascinating art of glass painting on unipartite panels.
IN SEARCH OF CLUES
Whether a drawing is unequivocally attributed to an artist depends on a number of different givens. If the artwork is signed, there is a high probability of scoring a hit. But how do attributions actually work in the case of drawings that are not signed?
THE ARCHIVE COLLECTION
In 2021, for its 180-year anniversary, C&A brought out a retro collection based on its own fashion designs of the past decades. These constitute the contents of the presentation THE ARCHIVE COLLECTION in Draiflessen Collection’s DAS Forum.
