In March 2021 we continue digitally with fresh coffee and very exciting insights into the work behind our scenes! The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin invites you again to the Digital Science Communication Cafe. This month in German. Get ready to get exciting insights from our scientific staff into their work while drinking coffee in front of the screens in a relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is invited to ask questions and contribute to the conversation.
This time we are joined by Christin Scheinpflug, taxidermist at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. Taxidermy is a very special craft and our current techniques and lifelike exhibits leave visitors of all ages in awe. Excellent taxidermists, like Christin, possess not only a thorough technical knowledge but also a real knack for artistic craftsmanship. Instead of "stuffed animals", she creates lifelike objects that are both scientifically and aesthetically convincing.
In this Science Communication Cafe edition, she explains to us how mammals are prepared, how much craftsmanship, patience and passion goes into the preparation of exhibition objects and gives us a glimpse behind the scenes of the work in her taxidermy workshop.
