Ortenburg Bible, German Historical Museum

500th anniversary of the Reformation

Five hundred years ago, on 31 October 1517, legend has it that theology professor Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg. The posting of these theses in Wittenberg marks the beginning of the Reformation. The far reaching theological, cultural and political consequences of the Reformation make its anniversary in 2017 not only a church affair, but a central global event in cultural history.

The Prince’s Bride and a Free[ak] Show - Two German artists in Kampala

When Rayka Kobiella was asked to direct KADS’ annual Christmas Pantomime "The Prince's Bride" this year, she didn’t hesitate one second to say: “Yes!” Rayka and her partner, the German artist Jonas Gerberding aka L.I.E.S., tayed in Kampala for almost two months. They met a lot of local artists. In no time the idea came up to hold a joint exhibition - the Free[ak] show -  with two events on 16th and 29th November 2016.
