Klosterleben

Klosterleben

Erlebniswoche in Museum und Karmelitergarten

Über 1.500 Jahre haben Klöster die europäische Kulturlandschaft geprägt. Als Begegnungsorte von Glaube, Kunst und Wissenschaft beeinflussten sie nicht zuletzt auch das Erscheinungsbild der Stadt Rottenburg. Historische Gebäude erinnern noch immer an die Präsenz unterschiedlicher Ordensgemeinschaften, die bis zur Säkularisation vor Ort beheimatet waren. Wer hält dieses Erbe heute noch lebendig, und wie? Unter dem Titel Klosterleben widmet sich die Themenwoche im Diözesanmuseum – dem ehemaligen Karmeliterkloster Rottenburgs – den monastischen Lebenswelten von gestern und heute.

Im Dialog mit Ordensschwestern und -brüdern, in Podiumsgesprächen, Stadtführungen und Vorträgen zeichnet das Programm die Entwicklung der Klosterkultur durch die Jahrhunderte nach – auch über die Grenzen Rottenburgs hinaus. Kreativworkshops für Kinder und Familien, Konzerte und ein Klostergarten-Projekt in Kooperation mit der Hochschule für Forstwirtschaft Rottenburg machen das Phänomen »Kloster« vielfältig erlebbar.

Stations of the Cross - Artist talk with Bernhard Langerock

Photographer Bernard Langerock has selected 15 works from his extensive photo series "Cross Phenomena" and compiled them into Stations of the Cross. In his texts, Dr Kurt-Peter Gertz, theologian and art historian, takes an associative look at the result of this work, a rare form of depiction of the Stations of the Cross in the art world.

The open combination of image and word gives viewers the opportunity to develop their own ideas and thoughts and to immerse themselves meditatively in the photographs.

The depiction of the Way of the Cross goes back to the "Via dolorosa", Jesus' historical path of suffering from his condemnation to his crucifixion on Calvary in Jerusalem.

The artist talks to Dr Melanie Prange about the exhibited works and the Stations of the Cross in the history of art and piety.

Beastly awesome – Creatures from another world

In the churches you often find monstrous creatures that make you think more of a fantasy film. Where do these creatures come from and why are they found in churches of all places?

Tangible delicate | Finissage with film derby

Until mid-October, our exhibition “Tangible delicate” shows the glass, metal and alabaster sculptures of the renowned Berlin sculptor Susanne Roewer. With a high degree of sensuality and irrepressible power, the artist creates works that seem primordial and futuristic at the same time. The dream-like figures combine pressing political-social themes with religious and literary references. Sometimes her installations are light and airy, characterised by transparency and a shimmering sheen, sometimes they are iron and heavy, firmly adhering to the ground. They show the viewer a world outside the everyday, where opposites meet and living things are created from inorganic matter.

For the exhibition’s finissage on Saturday, 14 October at 5 p.m., Susanne Roewer will once again come to Rottenburg for a cosy evening with film derby. A series of short films and film snippets of an artistic nature are shown in the museum. There is time for snacks and a glass of wine before, between and after the films.

Reichenau Artists’ Days

Ideas of what is sacred have always sought and continue to seek the proximity of the language of art in order to articulate themselves. The “sacred” can initially be understood very openly – with the sociologist of religion Hans Joas as that which can in some way take hold, that which is able to pull individuals or communities beyond themselves. And in such experiences of “self-delimitation or self-exaggeration” then lies an “affective certainty”: a certainty in which – “binding force” develops “whose strength goes beyond everyday experiences” (Hans Joas, Die Macht des Heiligen, 2017, p. 434).

Art can therefore be understood as opening a sensual access to the permanently nonsensual sacred, evoking in a corporeal-material sense, paradoxically representing the transcendent: in its unrepresentability. Art that sees itself in this way is always more than a visual or perceptual object. Their works are powerful media and make themselves and something OTHER appear. They awaken imagination and imagination that goes beyond what is shown, they construct, envision, stage and iconise. That which is thus represented is present and absent at the same time: traces … traces.

The Reichenau Artists’ Days 2023, for which the Kunstverein der Diözese Rottenburg-Stuttgart is responsible, will go in search of traces through listening, seeing, exchanging and reflecting. A search for traces, which the conference will by no means lead to a goal, but which should perhaps be opened at the very beginning. The programme sketches a possible horizon of such a common search for traces and wants to inspire to get involved in corresponding paths.

The preparation team and the board are looking forward to being together in Hersberg. We also welcome the members of the Community of Christian Artists from the Archdiocese of Freiburg.

Tangible delicate – Vernissage with Poetry Slam

A world full of poetry

The Diocesan Museum’s garden and exhibition spaces will be the scene of bold contrasts and surprising encounters this summer.  From fragile glass bubbles clinging to rough alabaster surfaces to bronze figures radiating gentle delicacy – in the works of Susanne Roewer, the most diverse, seemingly incompatible materials come together to form a poetic unity. The exhibition Tangible delicate (8 July – 14 October 2023) in Rottenburg shows sculptures and installations by the Berlin sculptress that defy the rules of gravity and enchant the viewer with their grace and powerful fragility.

We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition with a poetry slam on Saturday, 8 July, 6 pm!

Poetry slam is performed stage literature. Different poets from all over Germany will meet in the garden of the museum and seminary. A firework of poetry and prose, sometimes performed loudly, sometimes quietly. And as always, the audience decides who wins the evening.

The evening will be moderated by Asli Kücük, Landestheater Tübingen, and Wehwalt Koslovski, poetry slam pioneer and world champion. Since 1994, Koslovski has performed over 2500 times on stages in Europe, the USA and Japan. He lives and works as a freelance stage poet, reciter, literary organiser, lecture traveller, speech & language coach and art teacher in Berlin.


Creation myths in motion

For all those who could not experience it or would like to experience it again – the performance “Telling of our beginnings. Creation myths in word, music and dance” with Felix Grützner (dance) , Patrick Bebelaar (piano) and Julia Hölzgen (spoken word artist) is now available on YouTube:


Joannes Baptista Sproll and his crosier

Joannes Baptista Sproll becomes Bishop of the Diocese of Rottenburg in 1927. In the first photos, he had himself photographed with the crosier of his predecessor Paul Wilhelm Keppler. Since it was customary in earlier times to take over the staff of one’s predecessor, it was long thought that Sproll did not have one of his own. But how could this be done during his time as auxiliary bishop? Did Bishop Keppler and Auxiliary Bishop Sproll agree at the weekend who could use the baton and when? Inconceivable, says diocesan archivist Dr Herbert Aderbauer and sets out to find out.
