PETER FELLIN. MEDITATIONS

20 May 2020 - 8 November 2020

 

The Hofburg Brixen and the Museion are celebrating Peter Fellin (Revò 1920 - Meran 1999) with an exhibition on the occasion of his 100th birthday. The central idea is a dialogue between Fellin's works from the Museion collection and objects from the Hofburg's holdings. The confrontation with the "last things" is the level on which Fellin's works and traditional religious art meet. In this sense, the works in the exhibition refer to important developmental phases in Peter Fellin's œuvre, such as the Writers or Evangelists, the Scriptures and the Meditation Pictures. These exhibits are juxtaposed with medieval sculptures, devotional images, manuscripts and fragments from a fresco by Paul Troger.

 

An exhibition in collaboration with the MUSEION Foundation. Museum for Modern and Contemporary Art Bolzano
Curator: Andreas Hapkemeyer

BRESSANONE IN OLD VIEWS

 

21 May 2020 - 11 October 2020

Bressanone, the bishop's town situated along the rivers Eisack and Rienz, is the focus of the exhibition. Numerous prints and drawings show views of the city, individual buildings and motifs from the surrounding area. The sheets span an arc from the oldest printed view of Brixen from 1588 to the early 20th century. Much has remained the same over this period of around 300 years, and even more has changed.

For years, Wolfgang Hellrigl (†) and Martina Stanek compiled an extensive collection of old views of the city of Bressanone and its immediate surroundings. They published the results of their research in 2002 in the book "Brixen in alten Ansichten". Now all the sheets from the private Stanek/Hellrigl collection can be viewed in a digital station at the Hofburg. A changing selection from the drawings and graphics is also presented in the original.
