Andreas Burz : photo exhibition on the archives and collections at the Rosenstein-, Löwentor- and Linden Museums.

Photographer Andreas Burz from Stuttgart takes the viewer into a museum world that is usually reserved for insiders. Beyond the well-sorted displays in glass boxes, he and his camera undertake a journey of discovery. His stomping grounds: The National Museum for Natural History and the Linden-Museum.

The exhibition is more than just a glance behind the scenes. The objects appear out of time, protected from decay and the signs of aging.

A unique cosmos through and through. Everything that is relevant, be it in natural science, cultural studies or the apparently trivial, is put into a new context. Hence, the sterile and functional workspace of a taxidermist turns into an art installation.

Elephant tusks with fine ornamentations, insignias of power, can be found against the backdrop of a warehouse wall. Authentic. Not composed or arranged. Yet, the ensemble still bears a mystical and archaic aura. The large-format motifs emit the fascination and excitement, which were created during the project over the last few years.
