Against the backdrop of his installations that engage with the museographical genre of the period room, and related conceptual works in which aspects of painting, the book, sculpture, architecture and exhibition design enter into relation with one another, Klaus Scherübel’s current project deals with modes of depicting space and architecture in connection with questions of artists’ self-portrayals and strategies of productivity, using the example of a work by Lucas Cranach the Elder, one of the most important painters of the German Renaissance and Reformation.

The work in question is The Holy Kinship (1510–1512) from the collection of the Paintings Gallery, thought to have been created by Cranach on the occasion of his marriage to Barbara Brengbier, the daughter of a patrician family. Due to its strongly portrait-like character, this painting is among the special forms of a motif that was common until the seventeenth century: Cranach portrays himself, his wife and his father-in-law in the roles of members of the Holy Kinship. Apart from this unorthodox interweaving of the two family portraits, in which religious themes overlap with real social relations and interests, Scherübel focusses above all in the architectural setting within which the Holy Kinship is placed. Among others, this raises the question of whether and how this setting can be linked to the specific context within which the painting was made, and to the commercial aspect of Cranach’s art production.
Scherübel’s intervention consists of a spectacular translation of the painting’s architectural setting into a three-dimensional stage. Further works made specially for the exhibition are on display in a separate room.
