time turn 1400

the golden board as european masterpiece

In the first few decades of the 15. In the 19th century carpenters, woodcarvers and painters of international standing created a work of art of outstanding importance. The so-called Goldene Tafel, the high altarpiece of the Benedictine church of St. Michaelis in Lüneburg, was used to stage a valuable church treasure and is considered to be the most beautiful, which has been preserved from the time around 1420. For the first time since the dissolution of the complete work, the individual components are presented together again. The exhibition traces the reasons for the creation of the work of art, its exceptional, early-onset perception as a historical monument of supraregional importance and its outstanding artistic quality. With prominent loans from home and abroad, a rich panorama of the art is drawn to 1400, and after a comprehensive restoration, the Golden Table can now shine in new splendor. More

heidelberger statement

On the occasion of the annual conference 2019 of the Directors of the Ethnological Museums in the German-speaking area in Heidelberg, the following statement was adopted:

Decolonization requires dialogue, expertise and support - Heidelberger opinion

In German-speaking countries, more than twenty public ethnological and world cultural museums, university museums and collections as well as ethnological departments in multi-variety museums preserve a significant number of collections of cultural artefacts, photographs, film and sound documents, and written records. These collections are obtained in fiduciary due diligence. The objects were used to establish relationships between people who were and are significant to their descendants as well as to all societies for those who made them. These relationships are - similar to Diaspora connections - in the foreground of our attention.

deep sea

live in the dark

The deep sea is one of the most mysterious places on earth - still largely unexplored and thus the last big dark spot on our planet. This may be one of the reasons for the great fascination that the deep sea has
to the people. It attracts us with something words can not grasp - a distant world, in eternal darkness, inhospitable and yet full of life.

The exhibition »Deep Sea. Living in the Dark «at the Landesmuseum Hannover gives an insight into this unique world. It promises an interactive and multimedia underwater experience and close encounters with original deep-sea fish, which are among the most bizarre creatures our planet has to offer.

Partner of the exhibition is that GEOMAR Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research Kiel - One of the world's leading institutes for deep-sea research. The deep-sea is one of the most mysterious places on earth - still largely unexplored and thus the last big dark spot on our planet. This may be one of the reasons
for the great fascination that the deep sea exerts on people. It attracts us with something words can not grasp - a distant world, in eternal darkness, inhospitable and yet full of life.
