Documentation of the project
Over a period of four years, Berlin’s natural history museum hosted the international programme “Art/Nature. Artistic Interventions at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin.” This project provided an experimental space for examining the interplay between contemporary art, museum practices and natural history. Artists working in the fields of visual arts, sound art and literature explored the museum, its collections and its exhibitions. In the process, they developed works that interpret the natural history museum from an artistic perspective and contribute to the debate on its social significance in the 21st century.
This book documents and reflects on the project, with its interventions by Saâdane Afif, Fernando Bryce, Mark Dion, A K Dolven, Assaf Gruber, Ulrike Haage & Mark Ravenhill, Klara Hobza, Elizabeth Price, Monika Rinck, Serotonin and Sabine Scho & Andreas Töpfer. It includes essays and commentary by the project’s curators Bergit Arends, Dorothée Brill, Gaby Hartel, Christine Heidemann and Cord Riechelmann, and was edited by Anita Hermannstädter.
