New exhibition trail for the Museum

A new exhibition trail in the University of Bamberg Museum of Islamic Art is in preparation. The museum’s team is working on a new concept leaving the path of presenting typological series of objects.

The future aim is to highlight the most attractive and representative pieces from The Bumiller Collection and telling the story of the art of Iranian Lands.

At the same time the foundations continues working in pursuit of providing the collection for research and education and promoting the knowledge of Islamic art to experts and a wider public.

ART & TECHNIQUE OF NASRID CERAMICS FROM THE ALHAMBRA

Twenty-one works by the Spanish artist Miguel Ruiz Jiménez will be on display, among them splendid pottery objects ranging from wall panels, jars and large-scale pieces in the style of the Andalusian Alhambra vases.
The works in this exhibition are inspired by the rich artistic heritage of the Nasrids. With the revival of the Andalusian-medieval pottery art, Miguel Ruiz Jiménez preserves the craftsmanship of a unique artistic heritage. After numerous international exhibitions, such as the Andalusian Pavilion at the Expo 92 in Seville, at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris in 1997 and in the United Arab Emirates in 2008, as well as numerous public and private orders, the ceramic works of Jiménez are now on show in Germany. The exhibition will then move to other museums in Germany, France and Italy, among them the Studio of the Bumiller Collection in Berlin.

The exhibition can be seen in the medieval basement vault and in the baroque Garden Hall of the University Museum of Islamic Art (The Bumiller Collection) in Bamberg.
