At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.


100 Jahre Deutsches Ledermuseum

1917 – 2017

100 Jahre Deutsches Ledermuseum (1917–2017) focuses on the individual, outstanding object, with its history and qualities. Cultural history is quasi inscribed in the work—regardless of what ethnic group or era. This gives rise to fascinating dialogues or cross-references: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s hatbox meets the slippers of Ulrike von Levetzow, Goethe’s final (unrequited) love. The catalogue traces the history of the museum and the collection and presents numerous new photographs of objects that are, in part, being presented for the first time in the exhibition, as well as series of images from the historical photo archive.
