A medieval crucifix by Tillmann Riemanschneider alongside modern works by Otto Dix, Andy Warhol or Joseph Beuys? The Museum at the Cathedral in Würzburg shows how well these can harmonise with one another.
It is not the date of origin, but the depicted contents and the intention of the artists that determine the arrangement of the works here. This gives what are really traditionally Christian themes, such as crucifixion, resurrection and depictions of the Virgin Mary and the Saints, a completely new dynamic. Some quiet and subtle, some powerful and dramatic, the works of art captivate the visitor with their togetherness and contrasts and confront him or her with the questions of life, suffering and death that have been the same for centuries. The range of exhibited works extends from the 10th to the 21st century, from graphics to painting, from sculpture to installation.
