Lohrheim, Germany

INITIUM ET FINIS Museum

A wunderkammer of humanity and place of dark spiritual art. 

The INITIUM ET FINIS museum—which roughly translates to “The end begets the beginning, and the beginning begets the end,” tackles fundamental themes such as life and death, matter and time.

The museum houses the vast collection of artifacts, objects and installations collected by artist Matthias Korb. Images, objects and installations fill the rooms of the authentic old farmhouse in Lohrheim, with an adjacent “Lost Garden” to explore after touring the museum.
