About

For this round of artistic interventions at the Museum of Natural History Berlin US artist Mark Dion who is well known for his works in museum contexts studied the specific material culture of researchers at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin through time. The Israeli video artist Assaf Gruber produced a film in the environment of historical animal dioramas which deals with a coral expedition in DDR times and the work of taxidermists. Through her installation the British artist Elizabeth Price opens up a window into the museum’s history. The composer Ulrike Haage created a poetic micro-opera for singers, marimba, xylophone, chimes and percussion through which she will bring alive the museum’s famous wet collection at four performance dates in February and March. Mark Ravenhill wrote the libretto for the micro-opera.
