Anna Weaves Reformation – A Tapestry and Its Stories

Details

This catalogue is dedicated to a tapestry woven in the northern German region of Dithmarschen in 1667 to mark the 150th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, signed “Anna Bump”. 
The Museum of European Cultures (MEK), as part of the National Museums in Berlin, celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 with a new look at this special object. An interdisciplinary presentation illuminates the tapestry’s religious imagery, its cultural and art historical classification, its biography, and the methods of its creation and conservation. Additional 17th-century objects from museums, archives and churches in the region help to illustrate the time in which the tapestry was created.
