Rome in Westphalia 2.0 - Rome's flowing borders
25.03.2022, 09:00 30.10.2022, 18:00
LWL Roman Museum, Haltern am See
Exhibition

Around the birth of Christ, Roman legions tried to expand their empire to the east. They built mighty military bastions along the river Lippe - but fierce resistance from Germanic tribes forced the Roman troops back to the Rhine.

With spectacular new finds, the faithful replica of a guardhouse and in the new "Escape Room", you can experience the Roman era in Westphalia up close in Haltern am See - in the state exhibition "Rome in Westphalia 2.0".

Everyday People by Christel & Laura Lechner
09.04.2022, 12:00 16.10.2022, 12:00
Tourist Information Nordkirchen, Nordkirchen
Exhibition

The Schlossgemeinde Nordkirchen celebrates its birthday and the popular "Everyday People" by the artists Christel and Laura Lechner are part of it.

They have already been to Sylt, the Netherlands or Switzerland. Now, from 9 April to 16 October 2022, the lovable concrete sculptures will be staying in the Nordkirchen castle community for the first time.

Around 50 sculptures at 15 locations invite visitors to take a tour through the three districts of Nordkirchen, Südkirchen, Capelle and the castle and park grounds of the "Westphalian Versailles". The art installations in public spaces are sensitively integrated into the townscape at striking locations and offer something to talk about. They make visitors laugh, make them think and often put a smile on their faces.

Whether young or old - the "everyday people" provide interaction, surprise and joy for all generations. A special "highlight" in Nordkirchen is the birthday table in the castle park, which creates a remarkable symbiosis between the visitors, the everyday people and the occasion of the anniversary year as part of the exhibition.

With the Birthday Table, Christel and Laura Lechner invite all viewers to become part of the anniversary exhibition themselves. Join them and take a short break at the laid table. Through this interaction, new pictures are created again and again, which thus become part of the art exhibition.

The Little Owl - our smallest owl ... and why the Münsterland park landscape is so important
01.05.2022), ca.14:15 31.03.2023, ca.14:15
Old Schoppmann farm, Nottuln
Organiser: Naturschutzzentrum Kreis Coesfeld e.V.
Exhibition

Nowhere in Germany are there more Little Owls than in NRW. About three quarters of these cute owls breed in our federal state - a large proportion of them in Münsterland.

The exhibition explains why this is so and why we as humans must work to keep it that way, both with texts for adults and with illustrations from the children's book "The Little Owl Family" by Anne Möller.

The 90 m² exhibition also presents the four other native owl species.

Exhibition: Gan-Erdene Tsend - Reality is just an illusion
12.06.2022, 17:00 23.10.2022, 18:00
Vischering Castle, Lüdinghausen
Organiser: Kreis Coesfeld
Exhibition
Art

Gan-Erdene Tsend is one of the region's most important artists, known far beyond its borders. Burg Vischering is now dedicating a major solo exhibition to him in its 750th anniversary year.

Gan-Erdene Tsend spent his childhood in the sandy and stony landscapes near the Gobi Desert before moving to Münster to study art. His paintings transport us into a magical pictorial universe, shaped by Mongolian tradition and the reality of German life. They form a kaleidoscope of impressions from distant, deserted landscapes and contrasting urban backdrops. In these scenes, which are characterised by lightness, the people and animals, mostly depicted in rear view, seem detached from time and space. In keeping with the exhibition's title, Tsend knows better than anyone how to question the depiction of reality with self-evident lightness.

Time and again, his works feature the artifice of mirroring, with which he knows how to merge the visible, real world with that of imagination, fantasy and memory to form a fascinating unity.

In addition to new, large-format works, the unique exhibition also presents numerous private loans, which the artist himself sees as milestones in his artistic career.

The District of Coesfeld cordially invites you to the opening of the exhibition on Sunday, 12 June at 5 pm.

Monk do not fret. Warrior nuns, hard-drinking brothers and mysterious monasteries in the game
28.08.2022, 16:00 20.11.2022, 17:00
Liesborn Abbey Museum, Wadersloh
Exhibition
guided tour

From 28 August to 20 November 2022, Museum Abtei Liesborn, in cooperation with the Boardgame Historian project and the Institute for Historical Theology and its Didactics at the Westphalian Wilhelms University of Münster, is showing an exhibition on modern parlour games with references to church history. In keeping with the location of the former Benedictine Abbey of Liesborn, the emphasis is on games that focus on monasteries, monks and nuns.

The theme of the monastery can be implemented in different ways: from creating a manuscript in the monastic writing workshop to brewing beer to maintaining and expanding a monastery complex. The monastery as a tangible economic centre or mysterious place is often at the centre of the game. Therefore, the question is also explored as to which images of monastic life and work are to be found and conveyed there and how they relate to actual monastic culture and monastic history.
