What if Leibniz, the bustling polymath of the Early Enlightenment, had set himself the goal of imparting his knowledge to the general public in the clearest and most practical way possible, using natural produce and artefacts? What would the stockroom, in which he stored such items for subsequent teaching, look like? Which scientific instruments, technical achievements, everyday items, souvenirs from faraway countries, artwork and trivia would be contained in this store? Floris Neusüss and Renate Heyne answer these questions in their photogram exhibition which is designed as an intellectual game.

We are opening »Leibniz' Storehouse« together with the exhibition »Albrecht Kunkel: QUEST. Photographs 1989–2009« on Saturday, December 10, 2016, at 7 pm at the ZKM_Foyer!
