New exhibition

“Experiment of an artist marriage” – the Schumanns years in Leipzig

The new permanent exhibition in the Schumann-Haus is conceived as a museum of a partnership, rendering it unique among museums devoted to musicians. A newlywed couple moves into the Inselstraße. They dream of an artist marriage on equal terms. Both have chosen a partner who complements their skill set. Equality between a man and a woman, however, is not yet recognized in 19th century society. Some of the themes of the exhibition will be the creative team of husband and wife with a role shift, the different working and living conditions of both artists, as well as the balancing act between concert tours, concentrated work, and family duties – how did the Schumanns face these challenges?

I don’t let  my art lie idle, I would have to reproach myself forever.
