Exhibition: Picturesque! Image and appropriation
in the RothenburgMuseum
This exhibition uses engravings, paintings, photography, and numerous other visual and audible testimonies to illustrate the radical change in the perception of Rothenburg ob der Tauber between the eighteenth and twenty-first centuries. This transformation in perception is reflected in the change in perspectives, subject matters, and image details. It becomes clear how, from the paintings of around 1900, a canon of motifs is gradually used for reproductions and later for the mass distribution of postcards. All these visual testimonies have contributed to the tourist image of Rothenburg - an image that its people are now increasingly evaluating with a critical eye.
