11 x Karoline Luise

30 May – 6 September 2015  


What can a red whelk reveal to us about Karoline Luise von Baden? What exactly does a prescription for ‘sheep lice in de-pitted cherries’ have to do with the Margravine? What were her fields of activity, this ‘knowledgeable, questioning mind’ – as Enlightenment philosopher Johann Caspar Lavater described her?  In this exhibition, 11 different objects disclose the interests and passions of this exceptional woman.

Inspired by Karoline Luise’s curiosity, younger visitors are invited on their own journey of discovery to investigate for themselves the many pursuits of the Margravine.
