Exhibition World Concepts at the Artists' Colony Museum in Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt – from 6 Mai 2015 to 21 February 2016


The Artists' Colony in Darmstadt 1899 – 1914

Comprehensive new presentation of the collection of Jugendstil/Art Nouveau and Modernism in the Artists' Colony Museum (Museum Künstlerkolonie). On the basis of works of fine and applied art, as well as models and multimedia presentations the outstanding importance of artists' colony for the development of architecture, art and design since 1900 will be presented.

The exhibition highlights six chronologically important steps in the period 1898-1914, which enable the visitors to envision the wide spectrum of artistic creation of the Darmstadt Artists' Colony. Here, an emphasis is placed on the four major presentations, which took place at the Mathildenhöhe in the years 1901, 1904, 1908 and 1914.

The exhibition "World concepts" covers both wings of the Artists’ Colony Museum and thus offers over 450m2 of exhibition space for around 300 art works. The exhibition presents works of art of all 23 former Artists' Colony members, with outstanding works by Peter Behrens, Hans Christiansen and Joseph Maria Olbrich. It will also present art works from the municipal art collection of Darmstadt, which are first issued in the Artists' Colony Museum.

In addition to a bilingual audio guide (German and English) a web app for smartphones will be available for the visitors to explore the exhibition and the exhibition grounds. A specially designed children's guide will also be available from May at the Artists' Colony Museum.

Curator: Dr. Philipp Gutbrod, Director of the Institute Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt

The Réseau Art Nouveau Network now Cultural Route of the Council of Europe!


The Réseau Art Nouveau Network is delighted to announce that it has been approved for certification as a Council of Europe Cultural Route by the Governing Board of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes (EPA), following the final defense which took place on 11 April 2014 in Luxembourg.

Through numerous activities (travelling exhibitions, colloquiums, publications, activities for children…), the Réseau Art Nouveau Network indeed created since 1999 an active cooperation and an exchange of experiences between multiple European actors concerned by the study and the conservation of the European and International Art Nouveau heritage, as well as by its promotion and diffusion towards the public while underlining the cultural values and the European dimension of this heritage.

It answers thus to the different requested criteria for the granting of this mention (representative theme of the European values common to several countries; projects of multilateral long-term cooperation of scientific research, of heritage conservation and enhancement – especially towards the young Europeans; organisation in independent and structured network…) and has been recognized by the EPA of the Council of Europe as a “a cultural, educational heritage and tourism co-operation project aiming at the development and promotion of an itinerary or a series of itineraries based on a historic route, a cultural concept, figure or phenomenon with a transnational importance and significance for the understanding and respect of common European values.” (Annexe to Resolution CM/Res(2013)66)

It joins the 26 others Cultural Routes certified yet for a three-years collaboration especially with the European Institute of Cultural Routes (EICR), technical body set up in 1998 to ensure the continuity and development of the Cultural Routes programme in the 50 signatory countries of the European Cultural Convention.

The Cultural Routes programme was launched by the Council of Europe in 1987. Its objective was to demonstrate, by means of a journey through space and time, how the heritage of the different countries and cultures of Europe contributes to a shared cultural heritage. The Cultural Routes put into practice the fundamental principles of the Council of Europe: human rights, cultural democracy, cultural diversity and identity, dialogue, mutual exchange and enrichment across boundaries and centuries.
