The baroque building ensemble of the Foundations is historically unique and structurally impressive. In the exhibition it is staged in an artistic intervention: Eight monumental photographs on banners along the central lines of sight of the Lindenhof and the historic buildings demonstrate the strength with which the Foundations have been able to develop over the past 30 years. In 1990 the buildings were in a very poor state of repair. 42 photos show the foundations once again in grey. Quotes from former residents, students and working people reveal the strong personal ties to the foundations and their spirit. By 2020 the rescue of the historic buildings will be almost complete. The nucleus for this was the Association of Friends of the Francke Foundations e.V., which was founded in 1990 as an act of civic commitment and has supported the foundations ever since. Its 30th anniversary is the occasion for the outdoor exhibition.
