Biopolis - wild Berlin
Special exhibition from 8th November – 26th February 2012 Together with the nature photographer Florian Möllers, we will show the wild side of the German capital
The Alexanderplatz (‘Alex’) as a breeding ground for peregrine falcons. Bats in the waterworks. Wild boar in the front garden, foxes on building sites, buzzing beehives on the roofs of buildings in the city centre –Germany’s capital is a true ‘Biopolis’. As diverse as life reveals itself to be in Berlin, so diverse are the reactions of its residents to unexpected contacts with the city’s wild animals. Not everyone appreciates sharing their neighbourhood with martens, wild boar, rats and racoons. Together with the nature photographer Florian Möllers, the Museum of Natural History will reveal the wild side of the German capital through a special exhibition “Biopolis – wild Berlin”. We will show why the terms biodiversity and metropolis deserve to be merged with one another.
