Common Ways Towards Art in Pomerania

Another project run in cooperation between the National Museum in Szczecin and the Pommersches Landesmuseum in Greifswald, "Common Ways Towards Art in Pomerania. Central Pomeranian Museums Create New Approaches to the Cultural Heritage of the Borderland" with funding from the Interreg VI A Cooperation Programme Mecklenburg-Vorpommern / Brandenburg / Poland 2021-2027.

The Monitoring Committee of the Interreg VI A cooperation programme Mecklenburg-Vorpommern / Brandenburg / Poland 2021-2027, which met in Heringsdorf, approved 15 projects worth almost EUR 30 million. The Szczecin-Greifswald project value amounts to almost EUR 2.5 million. The project is scheduled to run for three years, planned to start in 2024. The official leader unit for the project is the Foundation of the Pomeranian State Museum in Greifswald.

The project "Common Ways to Art in Pomerania. Central Pomeranian Museums Create a New Approach to the Cultural Heritage of the Borderland" (German: "Gemeinsame Wege zur Kunst in Pommern. Gemeinsame Wege zur Kunst in Pommern. Die pommerschen Zentralmuseen schaffen neue Zugänge zum kulturellen Erbe in der Grenzregion) aims to make visible the artistic dependencies of the cross-border region, which have disappeared from common consciousness in the face of language barriers and the difficult history of the 20th century. The aim is to create coherent, complementary permanent exhibitions in the premises of both partners that not only deal with the same field (art), but also with the same historical epoch (the beginnings and consolidation of modernity). The collaboration will include two attractive museum presentations, crucial for understanding contemporary culture, as well as a joint multimedia exhibition and multilingual catalogues and guides.

The exhibitions will focus on themes that are fundamental to the identity of the region. The Pomeranian State Museum in Greifswald will focus on the most famous Romantic painter, Caspar David Friedrich, his artistic predecessors, followers, creative interpreters and spiritual continuators of the ideas of the "Age of Storm and Thrust". Reflecting the status of its art collection of the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries, the exhibition at the National Museum in Szczecin will show the cultural richness of the city as recorded in the artistic testimonies of the Enlightenment, Romanticism, Realism, Modernism and the Avant-Garde.

An additional advantage of the Polish presentation will be its location: the historical building of the former City Museum from 1913. Thanks to the new exhibition, it too will become an exhibit, complementing the overview of painting, graphics, drawing, sculpture and applied arts with modern architecture. To this end, the original elements of the building's interiors - floors, pillars, ceramic sills, as well as preserved fragments of wall paintings - will be uncovered in the exhibition halls, so that the viewer can experience the early-Modernist space in accordance with the current requirements of museology.

The Polish tasks within the project will include:
- exhibition and publications concept;
- developing a new permanent exhibition with partial restoration of historical interiors;
- conservation and preparation of the exhibits in terms of the exposition content;
- publications and promotion material.
