How artist-in-residence Niamh Schmidtke discovers the Mineralogical Collections at TU Berlin.

Join us for an inspiring glimpse into the evolving artistic journey of Niamh Schmidtke, artist-in-residence at Science Gallery’s EARTH WATER SKY program* at TU Berlin. This work-in-progress exhibition is a heartfelt tribute to mineral collections and its custodians – revealing their role in science, their curatorial practice, and the inherent value of minerals. Niamh’s work-in-progress showcases the intersection of art and science: Taking another angle on minerals in photographs, display cabinets and audio pieces, they offer a unique perspective on Earth’s treasures. The exhibition is complemented by individual perspectives of international students on “How to pull blood from a stone” – a workshop taught by Niamh. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to witness the unfolding of a remarkable collaboration.

The work-in-progress exhibition can be visited Monday – Friday from 11:00 – 15:00 o´clock until November 30, 2023. The final exhibition concluding the EARTH residency will be in May/June 2024.

* The art and environmental sciences research residency program EARTH WATER SKY is curated by Ariane Koek and funded by the Fondation Didier et Martine Primat.
