Lecture: 40 Years of Uranium Mining in the Ore Mountains - The Mammoth Project of Remediating a Region

11.05.2016, Berlin | Germany’s nuclear power plant operators are to pay 23.3 billion euro into a state-administered fund for the interim and final storage of nuclear waste. This compromise was mediated by the Commission on Funding Nuclear Decommissioning. But will this make the financial risks to the German taxpayers manageable? If we look at the remediation of the so-called Wismut region in Saxony and Thuringia, where SAG/SDAG Wismut, from 1946 until 1990, extensively mined the highly radioactive uranium-rich pitchblende, the dimensions of the disposal of nuclear waste become clearer. Until 2045, the federal government will provide some 8 billion euro for the remediation of 1,500 kilometers of open mine workings, 311 million cubic meters of overburden material, und 160 million cubic meters of radioactive tailings. On May 26, 2016, geologist Prof. Dr. Georg Büchel from the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena will provide insight into this huge environmental restoration project during a lecture at the Ernst Schering Foundation.

Jeroen Vandesande: CIRCUIT - Feedback Studies

Exhibition duration: September 10 - October 24, 2015

The project CIRCUIT – Feedback Studies by singuhr – projects featuring the young Belgian sound and media artist Jeroen Vandesande is both a “classic” installation exhibition as well as an artistic research project on the topic of feedback in contemporary art. The project, which is supported by the Schering Stiftung, was launched on July 6 with a two-month residency, during which Vandesande developed a new sound installation directly in and for the Project Space of the Schering Stiftung.

Over the course of the last few years feedback has become an integral part of the artistic work of Vandesande. In a series of radio and loudspeaker works, performances and installations, Vandesande experimented with a variety of feedback phenomena, investigating both historical and current processes of feedback generation and control. The project “CIRCUIT – Feedback Studies” sums up his different approaches.

Kerstin Ergenzinger: Acts of Orientation

Exhibition duration: May 29 – June 27, 2015

pdf Invitatoin as pdf

Kerstin Ergenzinger’s space-related sound installation Navigating Noise is a poetic exploration of how to orient oneself in space with the aid of sound. The installation is an experimental, interactive sonic architecture through which visitors move freely, navigating its sounds and noises. This leads to subtle shifts in the perception of space.


Navigating Noise is at the center of the explorations of Acts of Orientation, an interdisciplinary research project by artist Kerstin Ergenzinger, physicist Thomas Laepple, and curator Nathanja van Dijk. The project aims to investigate forms of orientation in our technologized world from a spatial-physical as well as natural science and humanities perspective. The exhibition will be accompanied by a seminar and a lecture in cooperation with the research group »Analog Storage Media« in the Cluster of Excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung at Berlin’s Humboldt University.

Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen: assemble | standard | minimal

Exhibition opening: January 22, 2015, 7 – 9 p.m.

Duration: January 23 – May 3, 2015

pdf Invitation as pdf

Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen translate our times of automated and standardized production technologies, into performative installations, provocative objects, and subtly aestheticized documentary films. While the biological sciences shift their focus from analysis to synthesis, adopting a language of engineering that focuses less on living beings than on components, circuits and systems, the artists examine our changing values. Their new work Sterile revolves around albino goldfish designed to be born without reproductive organs, presented alongside a machine – put in stand-by mode – capable of reproducing sterile fish to demand from pre-extracted sperm and eggs. In 75 Watt and Pigeon d’Or, human and animal organisms are being used in highly controlled (dys)functional processes.

About the 'Nothingness' in Medicine and the Arts

30.07.2014, Berlin | In August and September 2014, the Ernst Schering Foundation organizes two lecture evenings as part of the exhibition “Small Survey on Nothingness” by Christoph Keller, which is on display at the Foundation’s Project Space until October 4, 2014.

In Small Survey on Nothingness, the artist Christoph Keller investigates the relationship of nothingness to the ambivalent medium of ether in the context of art and science. While ether has been investigated by scientists as a medium for the transmission of light since the late seventeenth century, in philosophy it represents the absence of absence – that is, the impossibility to think nothingness or absolute emptiness.
