The third component of the “baroque island” at the Salzstrasse is a brick building featuring a Roman baroque façade and an octagonal cupola, built from 1705 to 1725 by Lambert Friedrich von Corfey. The façade joining the west front in an angle is all that’s left of the convent building of the Dominicans. The church building was used by the Catholic university congregation until profanation in November 2017.
"Two Gray Double Mirrors for a Pendulum" by Gerhard Richter
The painter and sculptor Gerhard Richter has created a work of art in the baroque Dominikanerkirche (church) in Münster that is sure to assume pride of place on Germany’s map for those interested in culture and art: "Two Gray Double Mirrors for a Pendulum" consists of a Foucault pendulum with a metal sphere weighing 48 kilograms that swings in the centre of the building between four upright, rectangular, mirrored glass panels on a stainless steel cord with a length of 28.75 metres.
The church has been closed for half a year since December 30, 2019.
