Event description
Chat about Bernardo Bellotto's documentation of the Königstein Fortress in four paintings on display at Manchester Art Gallery.

About this event

What do we know of why the fortress was built and how it was used thereafter? What went on both within and outside of those walls? Was the fortress a protection or a prison? What stories can be imagined with that information in mind and how do they resonate with us today?

Chat with Der Zivilist collective artists, Manchester Art Gallery curator Hannah Williamson, and other visitors to share your thoughts and discover more about the art. No previous knowledge of Bellotto or art history necessary.

This session takes place in the gallery space on the second floor. Seats will be provided. Should you require any further assistance please let us know in advance of your visit by calling the gallery team on 0161 2358888.
