“On the essence of nature” presents a remarkable private collection, presented for the first time in its own exhibition. For 25 years now, the Bremen doctor of microbiology has been collecting art of the 19th and 20th centuries, but also individual positions of contemporary art. His main focus is on European landscape painting of the 19th and early 20th centuries as well as highlights of still life painting, in which the hommage to beauty and the knowledge of transience come together in a contemplative moment.

Tell me about death! ̶ This invitation seems strange in a society that has successfully ousted death from everyday life. And then, of all places, this topic is addressed in an exhibition for children and their parents. How is that supposed to work?
