Horst Janssen – Research

Art Historical Research of the Oeuvre

At the Horst-Janssen-Museum, a place of research on Janssen’s work has been established. The research results are made accessible through scientific publications and the Internet.

As early as 1995, the Stadtmuseum Oldenburg published a scientific catalogue of works of all etching cycles, which has become a standard reference. Gradually, all etching cycles are scientifically reviewed and the results are presented in the so-called "Kleine Reihe" » (Small series).

In the course of special exhibitions, single topics in the oeuvre of Horst Janssen are researched and published in catalogues.

A large collection of archival documents on the life and work of Horst Janssen serves to explore further correlations. The inventory and the associated transcription of previously unpublished texts are currently being drawn up. There are plans to make them available online.

The museum will make its collections accessible to anyone proving a scientific interest in Horst Janssen’s art and its contexts.
