Working across various subjects, students from the Liechtensteinische Gymnasium explored the field of environmental ethics.

Inspired by Mike Dash's book Tulipomania: The Story of the World's Most Coveted Flower & the Extraordinary Passions It Aroused and Albrecht Dürer's watercolour painting the Great Piece of Turf, year 11 students from the Liechtensteinisches Gymnasium created works on the themes of "Tulips - Objective representation, stylisation in the art nouveau period" and "Abstraction based on floral representations" during the period of remote lessons due to COVID-19.

Liechtensteinisches Gymnasium
The Liechtensteinisches Gymnasium was founded by the Marist Brothers as a private school, the "Collegium Marianum", in Vaduz in 1937. Since 1981, the Gymnasium has been a public school run by the state of Liechtenstein. The school lasts seven years and ends with A-levels, with the prime goal being to give its students a broad education and to prepare them for studying at university. The school is not only a site of scientific thought and work but also a place of visual, process-based learning. With regard to art education, the challenge is to give students an appreciation and knowledge of the discipline of art in one double lesson a week.


Project space 'Parliament of Plants'
17 July 2020–17 January 2021

As part of the exhibition Parliament of Plants, the admission-free 'Seitenlichtsaal' is conceived as a changing, growing "project space". It links the immediate outside world with questions of art and will enablemeetings between a wide range of scientific and artistic-poetic approaches to and perspectives on the plant kingdom.

A production of Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, curated by Christiane Meyer-Stoll with Annett Höland, co-curator of the project space.
