  • Circular letter from Mitsuko Castle

    Dear members, dear friends of Schloss Mitsuko. The year 2019 at Mitsuko Castle is coming to an end. It was a year of ups and downs. It started before the start of the season with the news of Professor Radeloff’s stroke and with clinic and rehab… For the first time in the history of Mitsuko Castle, we had to open the season without Professor Radeloff being there and I made him the important promise in the intensive care unit in Rostock that the tea house in the grove will actually be built this year. A huge challenge, because the goal was to finish it until the arrival of the tea […]

    Of Lights and False Lights II

    From 01. December 2019 to March 31, 2020 there will again be a light and land art installation in the Japanese Grove. As in the previous year, fluorescent light is mainly used. The installation is visible at this time from nightfall. Flashlights and sturdy footwear are important as the paths can be uneven and slippery and of course difficult to walk because of the darkness. The visit to the installation is at your own risk.

    Setsuko Fukushima

    ALTERNATIVE BOTANIK Opening on 03.10.2019 at 2 p.m. until 31.03.2020 (during the winter break only by appointment) At first glance, the works seem to come from a natural history museum. They present themselves as preparations. The display cases and boxes made of simple wood show parallels in the form of the works of Joseph Beuys, who also created many showcases, mountains of books and fine-line drawings. The content accent, however, is completely different. Setsuko Fukushima’s works go in a different direction in terms of content, in which the artist is involved in the confrontation with herself, with nature, with botany in particular. It preserves, changes, shapes, creates surprising connections, works […]

    Collective fund for the tea house under this link: Dear friends of Japan, dear colleagues, dear friends of Mitsuko Castle, dear members of the Association, Welcome to this collection fund to promote the construction of the tea house, which I started to build with the helpers at the castle. It is admittedly an ambitious project, but we have started it and we want to implement it this year. Unfortunately, after many years of resting the project and storing the material, not all the wood is available, as one and the other was used again and again for other projects at the castle. The beams are largely there, also wood, […]
