Research Exhibiting

What does the past tell us about the present and future of man and the sea? In and with our exhibitions.

We want to develop three-dimensional narratives about this.
We understand exhibitions as a form and result of scientific research and publishing, therefore all research projects are also integrated into our exhibition program. Objects are both research and mediation media in a specially created public space, in which we enter into a dialogue with our visitors.
