2016/06/05: Treasures from the collections Hirscher in the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe

Rubbing shoulders! New Perspectives on Ancient Art

Once again, we invite you to get up close, touch of Christian art and allow to fascinate – with surprising additions:
What report artworks on our body, through the senses? What they tell of renunciation and asceticism?How do these meaningful works of art as a medieval altar change made? We also explore the late medieval metropolis Ulm, whose artistic work is richly represented in the Diocesan Museum. For the first time we also offer excursions to the art museums of Karlsruhe, Rottweil, which are closely linked to the Rottenburger collection.

Significant works of art collection by Johann Baptist Hirscher today constitute the basic ingredients of the Old German collections at the Kunsthalle Karlsruhe, one of the finest museums in Baden-Württemberg. We go in search of clues, look at works of Hirscher Collection and will also visit the magnificent residence of the Margraves and Grand Dukes of Baden.
