Depicting History

The exhibition (Bildergeschichten) is dedicated to the representation of (pre) history by artists and scientists over the past three hundred years. Public interest in ancient cultures and discoveries in all kinds of fields increased enormously from the eighteenth century onwards. The path from archaeological find or discoveries of ancient civilisations in expressions of art, for example lithography, films (Indiana Jones), wall maps in schools or paintings, shows a significant (digital) development over the last three centuries. New 3D reconstructions of antique buildings or the depiction in nineteenth-century paintings of Celtic pile dwellings are just a few examples of this (interactive) exhibition.
