The exhibition in the Hospitalhof presents selected works from the collection of the Stiftung Christliche Kunst Wittenberg. Works by Georges Rouault, Max Beckmann, George Grosz, Günter Grass, Bernhard Heisig, Pablo Picasso, Michael Morgner, Kurt Mühlenhaupt, Michael Triegel, Joseph Beuys and others can be seen. The works of art in the exhibition address basic existential questions of human life in the mirror of biblical images, parables or themes of Christian iconography. It becomes clear that and how even the most recent art is shaped by the Western Christian tradition.
The exhibition is curated by Christhard-Georg Neubert, chairman of the board of the Stiftung Christliche Kunst Wittenberg.
The Stiftung Christliche Kunst Wittenberg, founded 20 years ago by the Württemberg collectors Dr. Gisela Meister-Scheufelen and Dr. Ulrich Scheufelen, is the holder of an important collection of original graphics from the late 19th century to the present day. The works of art in the collection address basic existential questions of human life in the mirror of biblical images, parables or themes of Christian iconography.
