The main topic of the Humboldt Residency Programme 2023 is Our Precious Resources: Pathways to a Secure and Sustainable Future. The residency programme brings together outstanding international researchers from the fields of environmental sciences, chemistry, architecture, sociology, and forest management, as well as journalists, artists, and social entrepreneurs. Together they explore the interface between global ecological urgency, political volatility, and societal conditions to discover some clues for a better future. Interdisciplinary communication is a central vehicle for them to achieve this.

A cooperation of the Humboldt Foundation with the Kulturstiftung Schloss Wiepersdorf and the Climate Change Center Berlin Brandenburg.

In July, medical students of the Brandenburg Medical School spent their Summerschool Medical Humanities "Fundamentals of Medical Thinking and Acting" at Wiepersdorf. The event was led by a current scientific fellow of the Kulturstiftung Schloss Wiepersdorf, Prof. Dr. Andreas Jüttemann.

As part of the course, the students dealt with medicine in the era of Romanticism, among other things. "It is also important for future doctors to know the treatment methods of earlier eras. The first cholera epidemic in Brandenburg in 1831, for example, led to the early development of a drinking and sewage system in our region and the enactment of the first infection protection laws in Prussia," Jüttemann explains.

Another topic was the situation of medicine in the last years of the GDR. In addition to the on-site work, the students also went on excursions to the Stolzenhain bunker of the Soviet armed forces in the forest near Wiepersdorf, where numerous nuclear warheads were stored during the Cold War, and to the former garrison hospital near Jüterbog, once one of the largest military hospitals in the region. The students also visited the Elbe-Elster Clinic and took part in the cultural program at Wiepersdorf Castle.



In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum also hosts a special exhibition by Ingeborg Rauss. Her works are dedicated to forgotten female artists such as Marie Egner, Friedl Dicker-Brandeis, and others.
