In the late 14th century Michel Menschein, a wealthy Viennese cloth merchant, commissioned local artists to paint a series of frescoes on the walls of his banqueting hall. The paintings depicted a cycle of songs by Neidhart von Reuental, a 13th century minnesinger, who was particularly fond of satirising the erotic relationships between knights and peasant maidens.
While the steamy subject matter doubtless enlivened many of Menschein’s dinner parties, it didn’t go down so well with subsequent occupiers. When the banqueting hall came into the possession of a Catholic priest in the late 16th century, the frescoes were painted over, and remained hidden for 300 years, until their chance re-discovery in 1979.
The frescoes now represent the oldest instance of non-religious wall painting in Vienna, and provide a unique glimpse into medieval humour and society. But the centuries under layers of paint and plaster, as well as the laborious process of exposure, took their toll. All the frescoes were damaged and some were almost completely destroyed. Read more
On 8th February, the Cambridge Science Centre will be opening at 18 Jesus Lane. It is a space for interactive learning and discovery, as well offering a chance for all to appreciate just how amazing science can be. The main goal of the Science Centre is to bring science to people, whether that’s schoolchildren, parents or adults who have a passing interest but few means of satisfying it.
What we have been especially keen to emphasise is the collaborative nature of the Science Centre. The core team behind it form a menagerie of different backgrounds, experiences and approaches. We have individuals with chemistry or physics degree, years or research experience, who are business savvy and well versed in the art of public engagement.
The Science Centre also works with a broad range of researchers and communicators across the region, and so is able to draw on a diverse wealth of knowledge to design exhibitions for the public.
Our opening exhibition features the wonders of light, electricity and magnetism with an array of wonderful hand-built exhibit tables, where people can play with these natural phenomena.
