Aliment Air ("Lebensmittel Luft")

The current special exhibition in the Museum der Brotkultur in Ulm depicts different aspects of AIR: “Perhaps more existentially than water and earth, humans need air: not even five minutes they can survive without breathing. But air is also wind and weather, and is a climate that is friendly for life. The invisible element, in earlier imaginations habitat of immaterial beings such as angels or demons, today is populated e.g. by growing concentrations of CO2, by drones and satellites. The latter are serving research and observation – also of weather and climate changes. An aristic object by Björn Schülke designed specially for the exhibition lets one think of all these aspects. In their impressing photographic works, Camille Seaman and Tomás Saraceno show us staggering weather phenomenons that make us aware of the transformability of air. In contrast, Benedikt Partenheimer’s photographic studies about air pollution in Peking seem to sink in mist. Innovative start-ups, such as the one by the artist Daan Roosegaarde, concern about the question how to filter CO2 from the air – while Anna Debora Zimmermann abducts us with her installation of breezy, whispering beings into the world of spirits and poetry. The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) delivers accompanying informations and films.” The entrance fee to the special exhibition is 4 Euros including a guided tour (reduced entrance fee: 3 Euros). Registration of groups is possible via phone. The language of the written elements of the exhibition and the guided tour is German.
