The Parliament of Plants and other Cautionary Tales, Where Stories Make Worlds and Worlds Make Stories
Céline Baumann in Conversation with Ethel Baraona Pohl
As part of this year’s festival The Irritated City (Die irritierte Stadt), Roman Lemberg and Michael Kleine – in cooperation with science historian Hannah Star Rogers, dramaturg Johanna Ziemer, and musician friends – have staged a concert and a performative reading in the middle of a theatrical and obscure museum setting. Their contribution addressed how superstition, fantasy, contemporary science, and commerce have become intertwined since the early days of natural history, and that the natural history museums are still profoundly characterized by the theatrical and the spectacular.
