The Bar Mezzogiorno is an art installation by Florian Hüttner and Daniel Maier-Reimer that has been enriching everyday museum life in the North Tower Cabinet of Museum Schloss Moyland since August 2022. It is a popular meeting point for events: As part of exhibition openings or on Long Thursday, the museum invites its guests to the bar to talk about art and socialise - including its own Moyland Mule cocktail.
Daniel Maier-Reimer's Apennine Journey, presented by Florian Hüttner - Bar Mezzogiorno
Daniel Maier-Reimer's art is travelling. Each journey is summarised in a single photo, some in a small group of pictures. The artist usually leaves it up to others to determine how his travels and photos appear in exhibitions and publications. In 2017, Daniel Maier-Reimer followed the Apennine mountain range in Italy. Museum Schloss Moyland is showing this journey in Florian Hüttner's Bar Mezzogiorno. With the bar, Florian Hüttner directs the view from a Central European perspective "towards midday" (ital. a mezzogiorno) – the direction and sphere to which the journey had also led. He painted the counter with a picture of the south par excellence, with a view of the Gulf of Naples (which, however, lies away from the Apennines), and in this painting he added illuminated niches for whisky, champagne, brandy and herbal liqueur. On the shelf above the counter, he placed a picture of a strangely prancing raven and, between numerous spirits, Daniel Maier-Reimer's framed photo of the journey, the view into a forest shrouded in mist.
