About

Installations by contemporary artists who examine scientific methods and aesthetics in light of resources, biodiversity and waste products are on show at the Botanical Museum Berlin. Some of the works were produced specifically for this project.
Under the title »Plant Workshop of Modernity«, one section of the exhibition takes up the early- twentieth-century diversification of botanical research by likewise venturing into physiology, genetics and soil science. This raises the question of whether, or to what extent, Modernism’s functionalist, reformist and utopian currents influenced such discourses, and vice versa.

Participants: Book & Hedén, Böhler & Orendt, Katja Kaiser, Susanne Kriemann, Katarzyna Kukuła, Helen Mayer Harrison & Newton Harrison, Kim Nekarda, New Territories_S/he (with Mika Tamori & Štěpán Krahulec, Max Unterfrauner, Helvijs Savickis), Patricia Piccinini, Gitte Villesen 

Historical Protagonists: Hugo Conwentz, August Engelhardt, Adolf Engler, Gottlieb Haberlandt, Moritz Meurer, Rudolf Steiner
