The touring exhibition was planned in collaboration with the LWL-Museumsamt and has been seen in various places in Westphalia since April 2017. Its title is “Visual Worlds – World Views” (Bildwelten – Weltbilder). Romanesque Wall Painting in Westphalia seen in a New Light“.
The exhibition presents texts, plans, photos and exhibits on Romanesque wall paintings in Westphalia. The results of the research project “Visual Worlds – World Views“ (Bildwelten – Weltbilder) are incorporated in the exhibition in a comprehensible and visually attractive form. Numerous high-resolution photos enable exciting new views of detail in the paintings that are often far removed from the eye of the observer due to their monumentality and their location.
The exhibition is divided into eight topical sections:
Presentation of the churches involved in the survey – Historical background – Techniques and colours – Topics and motifs – The style – Sources and inscriptions – Wall paintings in their context – Their conservation history.
A booklet has been produced to accompany the exhibition:
Bildwelten-Weltbilder. Romanische Wandmalerei Westfalens in neuem Licht.
Publ.: LWL-Denkmalpflege, Landschafts- und Baukultur in Westfalen.
92 pages, 101 coloured illustrations.
The booklet costs 5 euros and can be purchased during the period of the exhibition at each location of the exhibition, from the LWL-Museumsamt für Westfalen in Münster via the order form or in bookshops.
