The Philosopher Martin Heidegger

The Martin-Heidegger Museum extends over three rooms on the ground floor of the east wing of Schloss Meßkirch. Thematically, the show covers four areas: In addition to a life chronicle, the important stages of Heidegger's philosophical development are presented. Smaller sections of the exhibition deal with the topics "Heidegger as the son of Meßkirch" and "Heidegger and art". Also on display is the famous star cube from the fountain at the philosopher's hut in Todtnauberg. Works by artists associated with Heidegger such as Eduardo Chillida, Georges Braques or Otto Dix are also exhibited. Heidegger's involvement in National Socialism is not concealed.
A media station offers visitors a wealth of photographic, film and tape material and further information about the life and work of Martin Heidegger. A large selection of writings by and about Martin Heidegger is offered for sale at the museum box office.

The scientific concept of the museum was developed by Prof. Dr. Günther Figal. He is a professor of philosophy at the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg and author of a highly regarded introduction to Heidegger's thinking.

The Heidegger seminars and conferences at Meßkirch Castle are conducted by the Martin-Heidegger Archive of Meßkirch, represented by Dr. Alfred Denker, in close cooperation with Prof. Dr. Dr. Holger Zaborowski, Chair of History of Philosophy and Philosophical Ethics at the Philosophical-Theological University of Vallendar.
