"Emperor and Sultan"
Join curator Dr. Schoole Mostafawy on a Virtual Tour of the exhibition "Emperor and Sultan. Neighbors in Europe's Midst 1600-1700," which opened in Karlsruhe to mark the 100th anniversary of the Badisches Landesmuseum in October 2019. As a result of the 2020 pandemic, the exhibition with its wealth of national and international exhibits from famous collections had to close early. With the videoguide, we bring part of the exhibition simply to you!
The guide is only available in German.
"Goddesses of Art Nouveau"
Join us for a virtual tour of the major special exhibition "Goddesses of Art Nouveau" (December 18, 2021 to September 11, 2022) with Dr. Elke Kollar and Lars Petersen. Whether delicate fairy, lovely flora - or fearsome fury: the variety of female images are a phenomenon of Art Nouveau. The special exhibition looks at the period around 1900 from a completely new perspective and focuses on the role of women in art and society. It features outstanding and internationally significant Art Nouveau works - including the beguiling Mucha bust, which has not been seen in Karlsruhe for a long time.
The virtual tour is only available in German.

How can museums make a relevant contribution during the crisis? This question has also been on our minds since the Corona crisis. A first humorous attempt: assistance for a current problem. Curator Dr. Schoole Mostafawy shows how going to the toilet remains relaxed despite the feared shortage of toilet paper in the meantime. Discover more videos!
The videos are available in German.
Drama and comedy, love and passion, wisdom and folly - the ancient myths and stories about Odysseus, Europa or Helena and Paris are a mirror of the human condition. Their stories have been passed on for millennia; they are timeless world knowledge and are adapted again and again in art, music, literature and film. With the greatest artistic subtlety and attention to detail, the stories can also be found on the Greek vases in Karlsruhe Palace.
The figures and mythological scenes of the ceramic works of art were brought to life in a joint video project with the Badisches Staatstheater. The five-part series starts with "GNTM - Greece's Next Top Model" on the so-called Paris verdict.
The Corona crisis has thoroughly shaken up our daily and social lives. We all had to learn to deal with ever new challenges such as social distancing, mandatory masks and curfew restrictions. But necessity is the mother of invention and many have found creative solutions to cope with their daily lives. Brigitte Heck, senior conservator for the everyday history of Baden, shows us how the Badisches Landesmuseum documents this special period and archives it in its collection. In addition, you can explore many Corona objects in the Digital Catalog.
Virtual Reality in Karlsruhe Palace
The central building of Karlsruhe Palace once housed the magnificent Marble Hall. Here, the grand dukes received the European high nobility and celebrated feudal festivities in the splendor of chandeliers, gold and marble. After its destruction in the Second World War, the past splendor is now being revived at the original location. In the video, you can get a taste of what awaits you on site with VR glasses - because during the audience in the palace, you'll be right up close.
