IntroductionResearch Fellow Mathias Grote is one of the organisers of an art exhibition at Aedes Architekturgalerie in Berlin.
“The idea for the exhibition was born when my colleagues and I realised that the scientific workshop we were organizing under the same title at the Max Planck Institute for History of Science in Berlin, had manifold interconnections to the arts,” says Dr Grote.
“In projects and experiments,” according to the exhibition website, ‘the works demonstrate the reciprocal action between the theoretical and material manifestations of membranes, surfaces, and boundaries, and their transitional stages between everyday objects, technology, and aesthetic production.”
The exhibition continues until 11 November, 2010.
Dr Grote is a researcher on a two-year collaboration between Hans-Jörg Rheinberger's department at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin and Egenis. He is spending a year working at each institution on the project ‘Microbial rhodopsin research in translation’.
