In context of the new exhibition “Sonnenrad und Wolfszähne. Verzierte Ostereier aus der Lausitz.” we offer (additional to the common decorating by waxing) a programm about scratching and etching eggs.
This workshops takes place:
Tuesday, March the 29nth from 10.00 am – 12.oo am.
Even though it is a fix date, we would kindly ask you, to announce your participation.
Here is some practical advice: In case you participate at a session about the waxing techniques, please bring some emptied white eggs for your own use. Otherwise, if you want to excercise the etching or scratching techniques, we need you, to have some coloured eggs ready by yourself (emptied or boiled). Furthermore it is recommandable to carry ones own pointed object (engravin knife) to the scratching course. That is needed to scratch the patterns on the coloured egg. Thank you!
Wednesday, march the 16nth 2016 is the next appointement for the quarterly held coffee at three oˈclock. This time it starts an hour earlier at 2 p.m.
Next times topic are the various customs of springtime in the wider germanspeaking and centraleuropean area with special regard at similarities.
We would be glad to welcome you!
This time the speaker is Martin Bruetzke.
The actual special exhibtion comes with its own catalogue. It is available for 10 € in our entrance hall.
It is the most current, scientific and extensive work about the entrire easter-egg customs and all the customs linked to it. On the other site it is still pleasant to read and very skillfully set up. The bilingual book (upper-lusatian sorbian and german) comes with a lot of pictures and phototgraphs. In the second section a choice of known egg-artists present in the exhibition are presented.
In case you are planning to visit the region, this book could make an ideal gift for your friends and relativs back home.
Saturday the fifth of march we have the honour, to provide the audience hall for the annual gathering of the sorbian/Wendish academic society, the Maćica Serbska (in Lower Sorbian/ lowerlusatian wendish: Maśica Serbska). Established by the example of other already existing academic societies in slavic countries the history of the Serbski muzej and its precedors is closely linked to that of the Maćica up to WW2. It roots down to the first theoretical conception, of how a wendish/sorbian museum should look like, written by the famous Dr. Arnošt Muka (Dr. Ernst Mucke), which was quite ambitious (far above a normal museum, he invisioned a cultural centre with a gathering hall; a library; a bar, meant to be the pooling place for all sorbian clubs and societies as well as some additional rooms as a dormitory for students.).
After the entire eventfull history and throughout its own differing names and maintenance (not to look at the chronoligical gap, caused by the forced closing), we are lucky to say : We do have quite a museum with a nice audience hall nowadays.
Those facts and connections go well with this years running memorial year celebrating Jan Arnošt Smoler (Ernst Schmaler, 200 years since he was born), who besides many other things (establishing the first wendish publishing, bookshop), enabled the existence of the first wendish museum in bautzen. After he bought the building, that served a the first Wendish house in history, there was also space provided for the wendish museum. As an institution the Serbski muzej is today itself a member of the Maćica Serbska.
During the Easter-egg-bazar in the Serbski Dom the Serbski muzej offers an additional special highlight. Mrs. Kirsten Böhme and her daughter will instruct and demonstrate how to decorate eggs by scratching and etching. To make it even more authentic, you can see, how eggs get coloured in the stock of onionshells. We want to excercise this traditional style of the Hoyerswerda-region. This workshop is only offered this saturday.
We are glad, to welcome a new coworker for the visitor service, in our museum. Mrs. Madlen Wella takes up service, after of our longtime colleague Mrs. Schkoda retired by the turn of the year. Not only is she a native speaker of the wendish/sorbian language, but also has she already experienced the work to the public in a museum, which as a feature, was quite welcomed.
Welcome to our Museum an we hope you like it !
Friends oft he Serbski muzej! This Sunday, jan. 31st our special exhibition runs out. On this occasion we would like to invite everyone interested to take part in the curator-guided tour. The museum director Mrs. Bogusz collaborates with almost all of the displayed contemporary artists for many years now.
But also the more antique-kind of works bear a lot of interesting facts to talk about. Often the story „behind“ the frame, of all the whereabouts and stations, is quite exciting.
Some of the paintings will get displayed in our constant exhibition, in the art dptmnt.
We are looking forward to welcome you!
Joy and frustration out of collecting.
Next Wednesday Jan. 13nth 2015 at 7 p.m. in context of the actual temporarily exhibition „Gesammelte Werke“ a talk and conversation will be held about the theme of collecting.
It goes by the title „Joy and frustration out of collectin.“
The host of this evening will be Jurij Wuschansky, who happens to be an art-collecotr for many years. The most known part of his collecting activities in context to the exhibition is a small figurine, showing a wendish Braška from meissen china, dated back to 1897/98. Researches about the individual figurine soon revealed, that it was part of a 25 pieces set about german national dresses/ „Tracht“.
Mr. Wuschansky will first talk about his hobby, collecting artwork, afterwards everyone is invited to talk about own experiences on that field.
If you would like to hear more about the backgrounds and creators of several works in our actual special exhibition, you can jopin the public guided tour through the exhibition, commencing at 6 p.m.
