FAZ: A wonderfully
analogue museum

Berlin’s Botanic Museum is a wonderfully analogue place – the permanent exhibition shows 600 botanical modells, from single cells to inflorescences to whole landscapes. Now, 200 modells are added until early 2016: the special exhibition “modellSCHAU“, curated by Kathrin Grotz, explores the history, nature and future of modells in society, education and research. I have reviewed the exhibition for the science section of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
