Traveling exhibition: the summit storm with lightning


    what does it smell Like Hiking? If one believes the Station, which interrupts the course of the exhibition, approximately half way with a type-cylinder, on the surface, a pointed surface is imitated, then you want to cancel the thing. Some of the sealed cans are, and when you take the lid and smell, the pungent unpleasant, albeit in different nuances, depending on whether you “want to call the effort”, “forest” or “Almtier” olfactory memory, and even “bread time” to give.

    the Germanic national Museum in Nuremberg showed the subject of his special exhibition “wall country” reactive result, you can’t blame the curators – right at the beginning of the infinite toil and boredom of a long journey, evoking a cascade, with the endless Line on the paper of the Installation “How long is a way no. 15” by Mary Mathieu. Each stroke stands for a step of an actual hike, and who puts on the attached headphones, listening to strained breathing and the Scratching of the pen on the paper.

    It is dangerous

    The fatigue the risk: comes Also at the beginning of the Show between so pretty in its simplicity, captivating exhibits such as the slender, the feet by long marches all custom Hiking boots, Helmut Kohl, or the absolutely unadorned, this spacious backpack from Hermann Löns an ordinary hat. It’s just that his sleeve is torn from top to bottom, by a lightning strike – the object pathological collection of the Vienna Technical Museum comes from the Electric. The only tedious, strenuous, and odour-intensive pages do not migrate apparently, it is also dangerous.

    unlike the exhibition, “Wanderlust”, which was shown last summer in the Old national gallery in Berlin, and especially in the course of the nineteenth century changed the nature of representation in art had been prescribed, in Nuremberg, the concept of walking in everyday life, to the reasons for the riser to the foot, as well as to the developing industry, the Hiking from the made a business and the necessary infrastructure is provided. But it is also about the impact of the discovery of the hike in the culture, their reception on completely different levels, and therefore also of art.

    approach to the essence of the wandering

    This Station but is one of the smallest and least interesting of the exhibition, and just because you would have had for the display of cherished and wanderter landscape such a huge selection, affects what one sees at this point, almost arbitrarily, in spite of the very beautiful watercolor “Feldstein at Rathen” by Caspar David Friedrich, the painter has contributed to a planned community work in honour of Albrecht dürer.

    Everything else but is exciting and well worth the visit after a few stations. The approximately four hundred objects, of which only a third of the holdings of the house is taken, what is for this Museum with its rich cultural-historical collection is a very small percentage, convey the concept of the exhibition in an obvious way – the reflections are kept Hiking against the objects in them mirrored or contrasted, and therefore you do not want to miss out on the catalog.
