Restoration Association Rheinsberg
An exhibition by the Rheinsberg Restoration Association in cooperation with the Kurt Tucholsky Literature Museum and the Rheinsberg Art and Culture Association.
As early as 1988, restorers were commissioned by VEB Denkmalpflege Berlin to examine Rheinsberg Castle and carry out initial security measures. A working group quickly developed around Martina Klingler and Jochen Hochsieder, who also held a senior position at VEB Denkmalpflege Berlin. With the end of the GDR the salaried employees became freelancers who now worked regularly in the castle. Over the years, the conservator community grew to 12 members, who always came together in Rheinsberg or on a project basis.
With the exhibition, the people who usually work in secret step into the limelight for a brief moment. Very individual exhibits are presented in a potpourri, which are not subject to the strict "Charter of Venice", the basic document of the restoration. This international guideline, which has existed since 1964, is also jokingly referred to as the "cat of Venice" by restorers (german "Kater" as charta).
