“Du Vaterhaus mit deinen Thürmen, vom stillen Weiher eingewiegt, wo ich in meines Lebens Stürmen so oft erlegen und gesiegt.“ Annette von Droste-Hülshoff (1797-1848) is one of the most important figures in German literature. The task was to stage features of her very complex character in an array of pavilions in her home and birthplace in Westphalia, the Castle Hülshoff that is set on a lake and its adjacent park area.
Lecturer: Charlotte Tamschick
The students created ten modular exhibition pavilions, each focusing on one of the many “identities“ of Droste-Hülshoff: the composer, the muse and mysterious person, the writer, the frayed personality, the academic, and the artist....
The pavilions had different concepts: they related to objects or were based on media or were only auditory or graphical constructs. They formed a dramatic exhibition course in the park areas of Castle Hülshoff.
From April 14 to April 20 2010 the students’ concepts were exhibited in Munster Landeshaus. The project was developed in close cooperation with Dr. Jochen Grywatsch and Prof. Walter Gödden from the Commission for Literature Westphalia. The exhibition was opened by Barbara Rüschoff-Thale, the city’s Councilor for Cultural Affairs.
