Power and the "New Media" on the threshold of the early modern period

During the whole of his reign, Emperor Maximilian I commissioned prominent scholars and artists to record his deeds and charitable donations in word and image. His aim was to ensure that he should be commemorated by posterity after his death so that he could serve as a model ruler for future princes. For this purpose, he was able to employ new techniques and strategies that had been developed in this period on the threshold of the Early Modern Period.

Opened until 1 November 2022

This complex topic will be subject to a second showing in 2022 as you will see.
