The traveling exhibition ‘Fascination of Worldwide Art and Color’ shows small-format images from all over the world, including meditative aspects. The images are arranged in ‘color zones’ for attentive viewing and relaxation, allowing the idea of intercultural exchange to flow in. The multimedia presentation with large-format pictures by international artists is accompanied by flows of relaxing music.
In addition, the large images are available in reduced-size reproductions (information photos), to take away for free. Specially in the video, artists from all over the world reflect upon the subject of travel. The exhibition allows the audience to view a wide spectrum of high quality art. Very different artistic techniques and styles are presented and combined with smaller sculptures and as well as poetry and sound.

Lecture on traveling, poetry and art
In a lecture about traveling, the travel author Gabriele Walter will accompany the film screening “Touring the World through Art” in both a musical and a lyrical way. The lecture incorporates exquisite poems of the famous German poet Rainer Maria Rilke, who is examplary for the correlation between art and poetry. Consequently, the film and the lecture inspires visitors to meditate on art also in this way. The audience renewed was excited about the poetry lecture.

With his so-called ‘image poems’, the well-traveled Rilke was a German Apollinaire and fits perfectly into our concept of exhibitions. Our visitors always meet this concept with very great interest. Therefore in addition and renewed, Apollinaire’s image poems are shown as an homage on the tables (our homage to Apollinaire see the link!), while viewers also can read there the most beautiful travel haiku by Gabriele Walter. All poems of the event are presented in small frames. Rilke’s poems, meanwhile, will be read in the lecture. On the basis of image poems, art lovers are led also to a deeper understanding of the international images in the exhibition. Part of this traveling exhibition is again Rilke’s wonderful poem ‘The Poet’, which draws attention to the problem of give and take by art.
