Excursion to Wiepersdorf Palace

As the last event of the club year, the group leaders of “Discovering the City through Literature” took their members and the families to an excursion to Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf in Brandenburg on 13 May 2018 which was also the International Museum’s Day. They attended the lecture of Prof. Dr. Ilse Nagelschmidt of Leipzig University: “Between production and proclamation. Female writers of the post-1968 generation”. Some of the authors mentioned during the lecture stayed in Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf in the course of the GDR era.

Afterwards Dr. Frechen, the curator of Künstlerhaus Schloß Wiepersdorf, and Dr. Baas kindly led the group to a guided tour through “Bettina and Achim von Arnim Museum”. Many thanks to Dr. Frechen and Dr. Baas for the kind hospitality and the fascinating afternoon. We wish that this gem of Brandenburg will continue to attract many more visitors.
