The Turkish Chamber in Dresden – Fascination and Horror
With the ” Turkish Chamber “, which is a part of the electoral Saxon armoury, you will experience one of the most magnificent and biggest collections of Ottoman art in Germany.
Over many centuries, the Saxon electors and kings have collected a magnificent array of foreign art works. On the one hand, the Europeans feared the warlike Ottomans, who tried to occupy the city of Vienna twice. On the other hand, they were impressed by their foreign way of life and the oriental art and fashion.
Come into the fascinating world of Ottoman art, culture and way of life and see how apparent strangeness and contrary ideas are often closer to us than we think.
