"OMNIA VINCIT AMOR – die Liebe besiegt Alles – love conquers all"

OMNIA VINCIT AMOR - love conquers all - this quote from Virgil is a topic that has also been popular and controversial in art history. Knights and minstrels in the 13th and 14th centuries took it as a motto, symbolized by an A in their coat of arms. In times of increasing intolerance, racism and hatred, the exhibition uses this theme as a symbol for love, for the positive, for the way out. But we cannot solve all problems with love alone: without the critical mind, which also questions our own thoughts and actions, hope quickly becomes a bubble of illusion.

omnia vincit amor: et nos cedamus amori - love conquers all: let's give in to love too.
Vergil, Ekloge 10/ 69
