The exhibition shows Art objects made of wax and dust, collected in Posterstein Castle, by the German artist Wolfgang Stöcker from Cologne. Dust reflects transience, human traces in history, preservation or loss of the past, new life for hidden remains – a metaphor for the hard labour of archivists, librarians and museum professionals as well!
Museum Burg Posterstein will commemorate the illustrator Christian Anton Goering (1836-1905). Although he was the son of a craftsman he succeeded in a career as an explorer, painter and animal preparator. Like Alexander von Humboldt before he went on two expeditions to South America (1856 and 1866) and conducted botanical and geographic studies.
