View the museum with its director
Nobody knows a museum better than its director! And that's why it's a great idea to have director Thomas Bauer-Friedrich guide you in person through Moritzburg Art Museum. He will show you the highlights of “his” museum, telling you, among other things, about the design and development of the main exhibition, which was totally revamped in 2017/18.
Appealing to all the senses: art & coffee
Moritzburg Art Museum is a bastion of good taste – in every sense of the word! Take an exclusive guided tour by the director of one of the museum’s collections to find out what makes them so special. Afterwards, he will take the time to talk about what you think of the collections over coffee and homemade cake at the MoritzKunstCafé. In fine weather, the tasty part of the guided tour takes place in the wonderful ambience of the castle courtyard.
Art and the everyday life of an artist in the GDR
“Art in the GDR” is a topic that is as emotionally charged as it is controversial. To do justice to it, Moritzburg Art Museum traced the history of its own collection. On an exclusive guided tour, find out about the many different possible ways in which artists could express themselves in what were then the Soviet occupation zone and the GDR. The exhibition conveys a vivid impression of the different stances which the artists in question adopted in reaction to the official ideology. With varying degrees of subtlety, many works show signs of how they were torn between resistance, adaptation and the constant struggle for authenticity.
The programme is rounded off by a welcome aperitif and a light “GDR style” meal in the MoritzKunstCafé or – when the weather is fine – in the unique atmosphere of the castle courtyard.
