11 x Karoline Luise

Accompanying exhibition to The Master Collector


Summary

11 different objects disclose the interests and passions of the Master Collector Karoline Luise of Bade.

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 the exhibition at Junge Kunsthalle, 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.
