Exhibition opening

Valentina Murabito's exhibition BESTIARIUM deals with species conservation and the fables of Etta Scollo, Timea Tankó and Jan Schomburg.


Horse-donkey hermaphrodite, cows with four eyes or fish tail presents the artist in her BESTIARIUM. For many years she has photographed endangered species in Germany and her native Sicily and transformed them into mythical creatures. Her analog photographs on wood, steel and concrete accompany ambiguous fables for children and adults by well-known artists such as Etta Scollo, this year's winner of the Translator Prize Timea Tankó and the author and director Jan Schomburg.

The Gothic House is a fitting setting, because like the bestiaries, it dates back to the Middle Ages. Bestiaries are books that tell of unicorns and dragons, as well as real animals, in pictures and fables. They hold up a mirror to people. Murabito's modern BESTIARIUM reminds us of the beauty of animals, which must be protected before they become narrated beings.

Vernissage on 14.9., 7 p.m.
  • Welcome: Gerhard Hanke, District Councilor, Dr. Jens-Ole Rey, Spandau Cultural Office
  • Introduction: Suzan Kizilirmak M.A., curator of the exhibition
