Cihan Çakmak. Tenseness

At the invitation of the MdbK, Cihan Çakmak (*1993) has, in her most recent work, subtly engaged with the presentation of the museum’s collection. In her photographs, she explores questions of physicality and pictorial representation in the tension between showing and concealing, objectivity and abstraction.

MdbK for all

White markings on the entrance and stair landings, orientation aids in Braille, high-contrast labelling of the most important functions - the new guidance system of the MdbK takes the needs of people with visual impairments into account. The Sächsische Landesstelle für Museumswesen (Saxon State Office for Museums) supports and accompanies us on our way to a more inclusive museum (this measure is co-financed by tax funds on the basis of the budget passed by the Saxon State Parliament).

Sternburg Stiftung

The MdbK preserves the extensive collection of the Leipzig merchant Maximilian Freiherr Speck von Sternburg (1776-1856), which he assembled on his estate in Lützschena near Leipzig. It includes more than 200 paintings, numerous drawings and works of graphic art as well as a library. Learn more here...
