The small-format metal reliefs in the Older Art History Collection have been the subject of research since 2019. The question always arises as to whether an object is really a historical piece from the Renaissance or Baroque period or whether it could be a copy from the 19th century after all.

Clues are sometimes provided by the motif depicted, but often also by the material or the method of manufacture. Delia Scheffer talks to Marlene Sprenger-Kranz about dubious objects and the results of research to date.

In the “Change of Perspective” series of events, two people from different disciplines talk about an object. The different points of view show how an object can be interpreted in many different ways and produce remarkable stories and surprising connections – a multidimensional and interdisciplinary experience of selected objects.
