Theresa Schubert, Glacier Trilogy – Part 3: simulating glacial water systems, close-up, 2022
Theresa Schubert

Vernissage: 11 April 2024 | 6pm-10pm
Exhibition: 12 April to 5 May 2024 | Thu-Sun, 2-7pm 

With her exhibition ‘Melting Mountains’, Berlin-based artist Theresa Schubert invites visitors to cultivate a new sensitivity towards the intersection of art and science. The three works on display address perhaps the most pressing issue of our time: climate change and the resulting melting of glaciers. Schubert offers a unique way of understanding the remarkable and alarming changes taking place in nature.
Previously exhibited individually at BOZAR in Brussels in 2022, the trio of works that make up the ‘Glacier Trilogy’ will now be shown together for the first time at MEINBLAU in Berlin, accompanied by an extended supporting programme. The project was developed in collaboration with scientists as part of  STARTS4Water residency, organised by the European Commission.

SUPPORTING PROGRAMME

Saturday, 27 of April | 5-6pm 

In conversation with Ingeborg Reichle

As an expert in modern and contemporary art with a strong focus on the interaction between art, science and ecology, the renowned art historian and curator Ingeborg Reichle (Research Institute for Sustainability Helmoltz Centre Potsdam), discusses the theme of the exhibition with the artist Theresa Schubert and will provide insight into the contextual framework.

The lecture and discussion will be held in English.

Sunday, 5 May | 5-6.30pm

In conversation with Tobias Sauter and Adnan & Nina Softić

For the finissage on May 5th, the artist welcomes three discussion partners: geologist Tobias Sauter, professor at the Humboldt University in Berlin and expert on glaciers, will provide a comprehensive overview of the scientific background.
The artist duo Adnan & Nina Softić developed the musical instrument “Klimaton” in 2020, which outputs the data of a research expedition to the Arctic as sound and thus draws a large-scale musical portrait of a changing landscape.
The lecture and discussion will be held in English.
