The climate has an impact on the earth and on us humans, and this is precisely what the special exhibition at the LWL Museum of Natural History is about. Guests are taken on a journey through the past, present and future on 1,000 square metres and can become active climate researchers themselves. The exhibition appeals to all the senses and offers interesting facts for young and old.
Nature and culture - two terms that stand in a special relationship of tension and have been constantly renegotiated over the course of time. Today, the pair of terms is more relevant than ever and omnipresent in the media, everyday life and art. The current special exhibition takes visitors on a journey through time and discusses perspectives on nature and culture from the 18th century to the present day.
Contemporary positions by the artists Maike Denker, Judith Kaminski, Alem Kolbus, Julia Löffler and Heike Negenborn deal with landscape construction, the appropriation of nature, the significance of houseplants and human traces in nature. This is contrasted with a historical perspective that looks at the life of the botanist Franz Wernekinck, who was born at Burg Vischering in the 18th century and devoted himself to floristic explorations and botanical teaching in Westphalia.
For the first time, the Draiflessen Collection is presenting a double exhibition dedicated to two types of the same art form across epochs: the different facets of glass as a material for window design and the fragile and fascinating glass painting on individual panes. It combines old and newer forms of painting on glass: while individual panes from the 15th and 16th centuries from the Liberna Collection are presented in the Study Hall, leaded glass windows from 1939 are presented in DAS Forum, the platform for working with the museum's own archive and collection holdings. These have only recently been added to the collection and were created by the well-known Roermond glass painter and artist Joep Nicolas for the C&A building in Utrecht.
jeder erste Donnerstag im Monat von 11 bis 21 Uhr
The catalogue raisonné of Heinrich Neuy's work, written by Dr Dagmar Kronenberger-Hüffer, was published last summer. A large exhibition of his work is being held to mark the occasion. Borghorst was the centre of Heinrich Neuy's life until his death in 2003. The exhibition deals with his different creative periods as a carpenter, as an interior designer and as a painter. Heinrich Neuy always remained true to the principles of the Bauhaus.
Besuche außerhalb der Öffnungszeiten sind nach Vereinbarung möglich.
Führungen sind nach Vereinbarung möglich, pro Person 9,00 € incl. Eintritt- mindestens 45,00. €

Die Ausstellung ist außerdem an Feiertagen geöffnet.
This year, the castle community, in cooperation with the native entrepreneur W. Uphoff, lets the cows loose. The special thing about this animal exhibition is that all the traders and entrepreneurs participate and thus give "their" cow its very own character in terms of design.
You will find almost 50 exhibits at more than 35 locations in the castle community.
Die Ausstellung befindet sich im öffentlichen Raum und ist somit jederzeit zugänglich.
Nine renowned artists - all with a proven focus on artistic drawing - from Germany, the Netherlands and France will explore the medium of charcoal drawing during a ten-day workshop at Kloster Bentlage. The aim is to transfer knowledge between experienced artists about the use of charcoal and the further development of their drawing oeuvres, and to present a jointly created contemporary artistic work in the field of charcoal drawing. A special feature of the workshop is that the artists will produce the charcoal themselves, using wood from the Bentlage countryside, and integrate it into their own drawings.
The artistic results will then be presented together with the process documentation and other works by the artists in the barn at Kloster Bentlage. Workshops and hands-on activities for visitors are planned to accompany the exhibition.
