Exhibition - Wismar's Red Brick Gothic
St. Marien Wismar - the exhibition Wismar's Red Brick Gothic
Using St. Marien Church as an example, visitors can experience the techniques used in mediaeval brick Gothic construction and handcraft:
The site of the future St. Marien is marked by bustling activity: bricks are being moulded and dried. The walls and pillars of a nave grow upwards. The treadwheel demonstrates how the workers heaved the stones to the dizzying heights of the scaffolding. But who organised such a substantial building site? How was it financed? What sort of artisans and craftsmen participated in the construction? How was the interior of the church furnished and decorated?
The highlight of the exhibition is a 3D film presentation
