Church, Cult and Clergy, as if! Architectural Painting as Revelation.
Church painting is not primarily about church, cult and clergy, as one might think. Rather, it is first and foremost a highly innovative instrument of a spatial research that was far ahead of its time: more than three centuries before the spatial turn, before focusing and prioritizing space at the turn of the 20th and the 21st century, it already opens our eyes to fundamental things: architecture painted in oil is a direct commentary on architecture in stone. It is spatial development and autopsy, determination of the essence of space, spatial navigation and reading instructions at the same time. Because of all these revealing insights, however, it is by no means only wisely planned and instructive - it is always also a feast for the eye, narrative, sometimes even cheeky and heretical, witty and ironic, but in any case entertaining and highly inspiring and entertaining. There is much to discover, let's take a look!
