Flora, Fauna and Fable
Painting on Ceramics Through the Ages

May 2020 to October 2020
Schloss Köpenick

With its 2020 summer exhibition, Schloss Köpenick is turning its attention to ceramic painting. In this context, maiolica and faience pottery from the Renaissance and the Baroque era will be placed in a dialogue with contemporary works.

Grita Götze and Sonngard Marcks – who studied under Heidi Manthey – master the techniques of faience and slipware painting like few others. The work of all three artists stands out for its imagination, the inventiveness of its motifs and its sensual and poetic expressive force.

In dialogue with the historical ceramics, an entire microcosm of plants, insects, animals and mythical creatures emerges. The exhibition, which comprises some 80 exhibits, is spread across the rooms of the Baroque Schloss Köpenick, inviting visitors to embark on a tour of discovery through the epochs.
