Participation of the Olbricht Foundation in the 4th Berliner Stiftungswoche, 05.06. & 11.06.2013

In the context of the 4th Berliner Stiftungswoche (04.-14-06-2013) the Olbricht Foundation invites you to two events at me Collectors Room Berlin:

Wednesday, 05.06.2013, 5 p.m.
Guided tour through our current exhibition ‘WONDERFUL – Humboldt, Krokodil & Polke’

For the exhibition ‘WONDERFUL’ the whole me Collectors Room was transformed into a chamber of curiosities. Next to spectacular artworks from the Renaissance and Baroque which have been recently acquired, we present you contemporary art works from the Olbricht Collection that also revolves around the idea and theme of the ‘Wunderkammer’: the spiny tail of a skate from the 17th century, a cup out of a turban snail around 1580, ‘Unholy McTrinity 2’ (2003) by Jake & Dinos Chapmann or ‘High Expectations’ (2011) by Elmgreen and Dragset. The unusual combination of the artworks open up new perspectives.
Parallel to ‘WONDERFUL’, the exhibition ‘PLAY – The Frivolous and the Serious’, a project in collaboration between the Olbricht Foundation and two graduate students on the ‘Curating the Contemporary’ Master’s degree programme at London Metropolitan University, is on show in parts of me Collectors Room. The programme is run in conjunction with the Whitechapel Gallery, London.

Live presentation of the childrens audio guide

In the context of the project ‘Schillernde Schätze und Klingende Kuriositäten’, two classes of our partner school Gustav-Falke explored various objects of our ‘Wunderkammer’ and engaged these musically, sculptural and graphically. Under the guidance of the musician Juliane Tief and the art historian Sabine Lata, the pupils designed an audio guide for children out of on sight research and at school. On the 11th of june the children will perform some of these pieces live at me Collectors Room / Stiftung Olbricht.
