The workshop aims to reflect, contextualise and amplify the exhibition “On the Edge. Artists in Dialogue With the Humboldt University Collections“ at the Tieranatomisches Theater (June 3rd – September 12th , 2015). Curated by Sara Barnes, seven international artists investigate the unstable status of objects between application/utiliy and historical value and probe the migration between collection and exhibition space.
