In his exhibition CARVED AIR, the Berlin-based Korean artist Yunchul Kim presents a series of electrochemical drawings as well as his latest fluid-kinetic sculptures, coupled to a cosmic ray detector. Conceived specifically for the Project Space of the Ernst Schering Foundation, the works were created in cooperation with “Fluid Skies,” a working group consisting of Kim, the art historian Lucía Ayala and the astrophysicist Jaime Forero (www.fluid-skies.net). Curated by Lucía Ayala, the exhibition is the first outcome of this collaboration.

HAROON MIRZA: --{}{}{} {}--{}{}{}{}--{}

Opening: Thursday, May 24, 2012, at 7 p.m.

The first solo exhibition in Germany by the British artist Haroon Mirza, which opens at Schering Stiftung on May 24, has a strikingly cryptic title: --{}{}{} {}--{}{}{}{}--{}. As the typographical equivalent of a wave form, it is the translation of sound and light into a sign-like representation. It is also a reference to Acid Reign, a new work created by Mirza especially for the project space of the Ernst Schering Foundation, in which he explores this site on several levels.

Volcanic activity is never far from our minds or the world news. With her new solo exhibition Hand Held Lava at the Ernst Schering Foundation’s Project Space opening on 2nd February 2012, the Glasgow-based artist llana Halperin (b.1973, New York) looks deep into volcanic phenomena and the interplay of life cycles between humans and volcanoes.

Ralf Baecker: IRRATIONAL COMPUTING

Semiconductor Crystals – The Aesthetics of Digital Processes

Curator: Carsten Seiffarth (Berlin)

Opening: Thursday, October 27, 2011, at 7 p.m.

On October 27, 2011, the exhibition “Irrational Computing” by artist Ralf Baecker will open at the Ernst Schering Foundation’s Project Space at Unter den Linden. In his current artistic research, the Berlin-based artist – known to a broader public for his “Calculating Space,” which was part of the “WorldKnowledge” exhibition – deals with the building components of our ubiquitous information technology. For “Irrational Computing,” he uses semiconductor crystals such as silicon, quartz or silicon carbide, which, thanks to today’s advanced microtechnology and extremely sophisticated procedures, are processed into transistors or integrated circuits (IC), with the materiality of modern microprocessors having long since ceased to be graspable. The extreme miniaturization and the black-box set-up elude visual interpretation. For his exhibition, Ralf Baecker will construct a circuit that runs counter to the developments in information technology, representing the system in a dimension that is enlarged many times over. The project thus corresponds to an extreme zooming-in on the smallest “physical” units of digital processes.

On June 23, 2011, the exhibition “CAGE” by Chinese artist Li Hui will open at the Ernst Schering Foundation’s Project Space on Unter den Linden. In his works, Li Hui creates unreal situations that have a dreamlike quality. In the exhibition room, the visitor is temporarily and randomly surrounded by a cage made of laser beams. Hui uses the cage, which encloses but does not harm the visitor, to explore individual boundaries and demonstrate how people are influenced by purely optical – though physically irrelevant – barriers.

The exhibition Fingerprints… at the Ernst Schering Foundation’s project space will showcase the performative installations and live laboratories by US-American biomedia artist Paul Vanouse. Curated by Jens Hauser, the exhibition presents the world premiere of the Suspect Inversion Center, an operational laboratory in which Vanouse creates identical “genetic fingerprints” of criminals and celebrities from his own DNA. It also features new motifs of the Latent Figure Protocol, as well as the Relative Velocity Inscription Device – a cynical molecular race reflecting on biologically legitimized racism, in which bits of DNA, instead of bodies, compete by testing their “genetic fitness”. The exhibition marks a continuation of the Ernst Schering Foundation’s effort to promote the public discussion about the role of images in art and science.

Carsten Höller’s exhibition “Rentier im Zöllnerstreifenwald,” (Reindeer in a Forest of Zöllner Stripes) on display at the Project Space of the Ernst Schering Foundation, is a cooperation with the Berlin National Gallery. In the context of his extensive solo exhibition, SOMA, at the National Gallery’s Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum for Contemporary Art, Berlin, the artist developed his new work Rentier rot-grün (Reindeer red-green) for the Ernst Schering Foundation, continuing his artistic exploration of the phi-phenomenon, which he began in 2001.

Weaving the Universe : From Atoms to Stars

Art///Fiorella Lavado
Science////Arthur I. Miller

Opening: September 9, 2010, 7.30 pm
Duration: September 10 – October 9, 2010
Monday through Saturday, 11 am until 6 pm
Admission is free

Ernst Schering Foundation
Unter den Linden 32-34 | 10117 Berlin

In cooperation with the British Council, the Schering Stiftung presents the exhibition project “Weaving the Universe: From Atoms to Stars” by Peruvian artist Fiorella Lavado and British physicist and historian of science Arthur I. Miller.

The artist will be showing her most recent works, which are made of stainless-steel wire, at the Project Space. The sculptures, created in discussion dialogue with Arthur I. Miller, provide the viewer with an idea of the phenomena of the universe which are basically invisible and difficult to grasp.

The exhibition will be launched on 9 September 2010 at 6pm with a lecture by Arthur I. Miller and Fiorella Lavado at the Robert-Koch-Forum of the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin. With the title "A Journey Between Two Worlds" they will introduce the theme of the exhibition. The exhibition will officially open at the Ernst Schering Foundation at 7.30pm.

Fiorella Lavado & Arthur I. Miller about the exhibition:

“Weaving the Universe: From Atoms to Stars” originates from a unique collaboration between an artist and a scientist. This unusual approach requires that the artist strives to understand scientific concepts and the scientist is willing to examine nature from an artistic point of view. It seeks to evoke the ambiguity and beauty of the cosmos in the large – black holes and wormholes – and in the small – atoms, electrons and light quanta – while exploring the human mind, the means by which we imagine these strange worlds.”

A panel discussion with the title “Beyond Scientific Visualisation” will take place at the Schering Stiftung on 7 October 2010 at 7pm. The five panel members will approach the topic from a scientific or artistic background and will consider questions such as “Are collaborations between artists and scientists able to produce work capable of advancing scientific research?“, “Is art able to serve science without losing its artistic integrity?“ or “Are artistic concepts, like beauty, symmetry, and aesthetics, able to fertilize the increasingly complex and abstract visual language of science?“.
