Theses. Danish Contemporary Artists in a Dialogue with the Reformation

25th May to 2nd September 2018.

Exhibition in the castle, the castle church and city church in Lutherstadt Wittenberg

An exhibition on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.

The exhibition consists of 25 prominent Danish artists, invited to reflect upon the Protestant Reformation and what it means. The artists have channelled their thoughts and impressions into various pictorial art forms such as paintings, sculptures, art installations, photography and graphical designs especially produced for this exhibition.

The exhibition marks the 500th anniversary of the onset of the Protestant Reformation. In 1517, Martin Luther posted his Ninety-five Theses on the door of All Saint’s Church in Wittenberg in what historians consider the formal start to the reformation which had – and still has – a huge impact on the whole world. That is why its 500th anniversary is marked in various ways both within and outside the Church.

The Collection of Stiftung Christliche Kunst Wittenberg

Please Note: Parts of our own collection will be shown again from September 2018!

The Stiftung Christliche Kunst Wittenberg owns a high-calibre collection of original graphic works on religious and existential themes by internationally renowned artists from the 20th century to the present day. They include the likes of Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Käthe Kollwitz, Max Pechstein, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Oskar Kokoschka, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Joseph Beuys, Robert Rauschenberg, Georg Baselitz, Werner Tübke, Wolfgang Mattheuer, Keith Haring and Damien Hirst, but also Michael Morgner, Michael Triegel, Edgar Knobloch, Katerina Belkina and Thomas A. Straub.

The artists represented in the foundation deal with the existential questions of life, love and death; they draw power and hope from the stories of the Bible. The individual works are characterised by all manner of personal confessions of faith.

The exhibited works offer highly expressive descriptions of human values, and thus symbolise a humanism that transcends nations, cultures and religions.
