On the Far Side of the Marchlands - Ausstellung in der Schering Stiftung

 

The Ernst Schering Foundation

Founded in 2002 by Schering AG, Berlin, the independent and non-profit Ernst Schering Foundation aims to promote science and art. In science the focus is on the life and natural sciences, in art on the contemporary visual and performing arts including dance and music. In addition, the Foundation promotes the scientific and cultural education of children and youth and the dialogue between science and society.

Particular emphasis is on projects in frontier areas, especially at the interface of art and science. This interface is also the focus of its project space, where it puts on shows by young, experimental artists as well as lectures and workshops. The space thus serves as a platform for an interdisciplinary dialogue among science, culture and society.

Decisions about how to use the Foundation’s funds are made twice a year by the Foundation Council, which consists of prominent figures from the arts and sciences. The Managing Director is responsible for running the Foundation’s day-to-day activities and operations and publicly represents the Foundation.

The Foundation has an endowment of €35 million.
