Westfälische Küche - Thekengespräche with Stefan Querl (Villa ten Hompel)



Monday, 4 September 2023 at 7 pm

This time Stefan Querl, the director of Villa ten Hompel, is behind the counter. A native of the Ruhr region, he has been managing the history site since February this year. Previously, he worked as an editor and journalist for various media in North Rhine-Westphalia. Since 2020, he has been the city administration's contact person against anti-Semitism in Münster on behalf of the City Mayor. Against the background of his many years of commitment against right-wing extremism and anti-Semitism, Stefan Querl talks about what it means to do historical and political educational work. He also provides a glimpse behind the scenes at Villa ten Hompel. Everyone is cordially invited to join in the discussion with free admission.

The "Westfälische Küche" (Westphalian Kitchen), a programme initiated by members of the Westfälischer Kunstverein, has been taking place since 2015. Various participants from Münster's art and culture scene, but also from beyond the city limits, were invited to talk about their activities and various topics in a relaxed atmosphere and unconventional setting - according to the motto "The best conversations take place in the kitchen". After the format enjoyed great popularity before the Corona pandemic, it was initially continued online until 2021. Since June 2023, the series has now continued in a modified form.

The conversation will be held in German.
Organised by Jana Bernhardt, Helena Düsing, Marijke Lukowicz, Jana Peplau and Elena Winkler.
