with objects and a bee colony

Installation by Bärbel Rothhaar

23 / 05 / 21 until 15 / 08 / 21

Over several years Bärbel Rothhaar has been talking to beekeepers and bee researchers about their experiences with swarms. She has also modelled her portraits in beeswax and installed them in beehives. In the courtyard, a bee colony will continue to work on the wax portraits in a display case. The already finished collaborations of bees and artist can be seen indoors.


To accompany the exhibition we serve a menu with products of the bees and their therapeutic and culinary uses with honey, oxymel, mead and drone brood.
