Over a period of four years, the international model project "Art/Nature. Artistic Interventions at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin" opened an experimental space for the interactions between contemporary art, museum practice and natural history research. Artists* from the fields of fine arts, sound art and literature explored the museum, its collections and exhibitions. The results were finally published: "Art/Nature. Artistic Interventions at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin", edited by Anita Hermannstädter, Edition Braus, Berlin 2019. The following articles of the anthology are online:
