Eye to eye with the largest poisonous snake in the world, the king cobra, or the most venomous, the inland taipan - this exhibition makes it possible!
Paranormal phenomena have always been a source of fascination to people. In Freiburg they have been scientifically examined since the 1950s. The photographer and photo journalist Leif Geiges (1915–1990) worked for many years with the parapsychologist Hans Bender, professor at Freiburg University and founder of the Institute for Frontier Areas of Psychology and Mental Health.
What did life look like before the city of Freiburg was founded? The final part of the exhibition trilogy freiburg.archaeology answers this question from two perspectives – chronological und geographical.
Pablo Picasso, Oskar Kokoschka and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner take on Christa Näher, Heike Beyer and Max Ernst: if you want to have a closer look at and empower your own team, invite them to friendly game. The sport-related designation describes an encounter between two collections – one public and one private. In the process, unexpected constellations and relationships emerge between the works that open up new perspectives – including a mutual broadening of horizons.
Half of the total population are women*. Also in Freiburg. What happens when many Freiburg women come together in one room and enter into a dialogue? Over 100 portrait photographs taken by Britt Schilling show self-confident individuals in a clash of cultures, social milieus, age groups and realities of life. The exhibition celebrates their similarities and differences and creates a broad image of modern urban society. Cultural diversity, women's community and a strong women's culture become apparent.
It mostly takes place completely hidden from view: the creative process, from the first sketched idea via detailed studies to the final elaborately composed artwork. But the Haus der Graphischen Sammlung now allows us to take an unusual glimpse into the work process of virtuosic illustrator Johann Baptist Kirner.
What future does the fortune teller predict for her clients? Who wins the prizes at the agricultural show? Will the prayers of the peasant family be answered? And will the Grand Duke be successful on his hunting trip? The paintings of Johann Baptist Kirner (1806–1866) have so much life in them that one literally seems to hear the laughter of children at play, the weeping of the shepherd and the clink of glasses.
