Christoph Keller: Small Survey on Nothingness

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.

Book Launch with Pinar Yoldas, Regine Hengge, Ingeborg Reichle

14.04.2014, Berlin | On 4 May 2014, 3 p. m., the artist Pinar Yoldas will talk about current findings of scientific research about biofilms with microbiologist Regine Hengge against the background of her exhibition An Ecosystem of Excess as well as new ecosystems in the oceans of the world. Moderated by the art historian Ingeborg Reichle, they will discuss the future development of our marine ecosystems which are polluted by plastic garbage.

With An Ecosystem of Excess, the Turkish artist Pinar Yoldas creates a post-human ecosystem of speculative organisms and their imagined environment. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a garbage vortex made up of several million tons of plastic waste in the North Pacific about the size of Central Europe is Yoldas’ site of interest and the birthplace for species of excess.

Artist's talk and book launch

30.10.2013, Berlin | On November 16, 2013 at 4 p.m. the Ernst Schering Foundation will host an artist’s talk with Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle (in English). Together with Charlotte Klonk and Hubertus von Amelunxen he will speak about the artistic and scientific background of his exhibition Bird in Space at MACH10, for which he tested a copy of Brancusis’s sculpture “Bird in Space” (1923-26) in a windtunnel at ten times the speed of sound.

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle: Bird in Space at Mach10

Opening: Wed, September 18, 2013 at 7 p.m.
Duration: September 19 through November 16, 2013
Ernst Schering Foundation
Unter den Linden 32-34 | 10117 Berlin
Monday through Saturday: 11 a.m. till 6 p.m.  (except public holiday) - Free entry

How does a sculpture of classical modernism behave in a wind tunnel at ten times the speed of sound? This has been examined by the Chicago-based, Spanish-born artist Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, whose Phantom Truck drew international attention at the 2007 documenta in Kassel. He tested Constantin Brancusi’s groundbreaking work L‘Oiseau dans l’espace (Bird in Space, 1923-26) in a U.S. Air Force wind tunnel at Mach 10. The results are now on display in the exhibition Bird in Space at MACH10 at the Project Space of the Ernst Schering Foundation.

In her exhibition, “Anästhetiker” the The-Hague and Cologne-based German artist Evelina Rajca (*1984) shows experimentally to what extent the density and aggregate state of matter influences the presumed presence or absence of options for action. “Anästhetiker” – a neologism coined from “aesthete” and “anaesthetic” – is a complex mixed media installation specifically created for the Project Space of the Ernst Schering Foundation.

Symposium Fragile Data

Berlin, 07.01.2013 | In the natural sciences, especially in the field of biology, there are signs of a displacement from theory-based towards data-based research. What effects will it have on research operations if the generation, selection, evaluation and processing of data is automated more and more? What new insights will be made possible through the quantification of experimental systems? Which data standards will be developed and how will they influence the daily research practice? Is the image as the main knowledge creator in the natural sciences being replaced? And what effects would such a loss of importance have for scientific fields like media- and visual-sciences or for art history and the arts?

Symposium Fluid Cosmologies I

26.10.2012, Berlin | On November 2 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., the symposium Fluid Cosmologies I will be hosted at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. On the occasion of the exhibition CARVED AIR by Yunchul Kim, experts from different scientific disciplines will reflect on the central aspects of the exhibition: dark matter simulations, experiments on fluid instabilities and interdisciplinary approaches at the interface of science, media and art. This joint reflection from sciences and humanities examines the significance and potential of the concept of the “fluid skies” in contemporary cosmology, astrophysics and media theory.
