Shizuko Sawada / David Uessem

The Flight of the Cranes

Guest in the air, heraldic animal, advertising ambassador, symbol of peace and happiness, and, last but not least, a motif in art: The crane has left behind its traces in many regions and diverse cultures. It also looks big and impressive, even high up in the sky, when it flies over Germany in its typical formations, making its loud cries. The Bergische Land, and therefore the museum and forum Schloss Homburg as well, are located in the heart of its air corridor. Occasion enough for an interdisciplinary exhibition about the crane. In it, the crane’s traces are pursued starting from the Bergische Land, revealed and made evident. The accompanying publication provides insights into the cosmos of this fascinating animal along with impressive pictures.
