until 20.12. | #2816ARTatBerlin | Alfred Ehrhardt Foundation is showing the exhibition Biosphere X by the artist Claudius Schulze from September 12, 2020.
For his room-specific installation Biosphere X in the Alfred Ehrhardt Foundation Claudius Schulze brings together two epoch-making developments: the loss of biodiversity on the one hand and the creation of new life forms through Artificial intelligence and bionics on the other hand.
Could miniature drones soon be used to pollinate crops while at the same time the basis of life for millions of living beings gets lost?

As an artist and researcher, it is Claudius Schulze’s motivation to explore the worlds behind the surface of the everyday. He documents by means of large-format Photographs, 3D scans, animations, animal preparations and microscope images species extinction, shows the development of bionic robots, records animals and their behavior, visualizes urban retreats of wild nature from the perspective of autonomous machines and creates new species with its own artificial intelligence. Biosphere X is an attempt to document these developments and reflect.
