Tithe Barn Lorsch Abbey

UNESCO World Heritage Site

The exhibition "Drawing History – Sources from a Well" is soon returning from its winter break to be presented once again at the depot tithe barn on the grounds of UNESCO World Heritage Site Lorsch Abbey.
Inspiration for the exhibition with its elaborate scenography is a 15-meter deep old well, which is also situated on the abbey grounds. Several extraordinary finds were extracted from it a few years ago. A particular eye-catcher is a find of large fragments from a gothic sculpture, a so-called Atzmann from the 13th century, which was used as a lectern for ecclesial liturgy.

Grouped around a stylized reconstruction of the well are several rows of semicircular wall elements. These were cladded in large-format fleece wallpaper (up to 9 meters wide and 2,63 meters high) by our expert installation team. To achieve a seamless finish, this was done in one piece for each element. Mounted on top are explanatory texts and images about the exhibition. Printed templates of sturdy 5 millimeter foam board make up a matching game to encourage new ways of discovering the finds.
