Exhibition Mensch Ludwig!,
Castle Hartmannsberg near Bad Endorf



The 2 channel–videoinstallation was specially designed for this room. Although the castle is situated in beautiful park, the wall and door refuse the view on the lake and the distance. As replacement functions a reed panelling and the inexhaustable mind.
“Any contact with the world hurts me, my nature has an excessive and incomprehensible sensitivity...” Ludwig II






13 terms, all apparently having a spelling error, indicate as a new created word to the conditions and circumstances of the life of Ludwig II. Their slow appearance and disappearance back in a simulated water whose surface is disturbed by light raindrops, invite to think about the person and soul of Ludwig II.



On the occasion of the Bavarian State Exhibition “Götterdämmerung — King Ludwig II and His Time” in the New Castle Herrenchiemsee, the district of Rosenheim in cooperation with the Städtische Galerie Rosenheim in Castle Hartmannsberg invited visual artists of the 21st Century to deal with the Bavarian “Fairytale King” and the myth around his person.
