Baden-Württemberg Stiftung is one of Germany’s largest operative foundations. It promotes independent top-level research, diverse educational measures and a responsible approach to social interaction between humans. In order to express this fundamental idea, the 2016 annual report is dedicated to the topic “Freedom of thought, conscience and religion”. Its image section shows a leaflet and poster campaign which, in the anniversary year of Martin Luther, provides a striking visual base for 95 contemporary theses based on his ideas. The subsequent contributions on selected subsidised projects, ac-centuated by illustrations and photos, paint an unmistakeable picture of the foundation’s work.
