The Kassel Art of Stone Appreciation

Stellwerk is an student-run art space in the old Kassel train station. In the semester break, Karoline Achilles and I curated a show of Michael Gärtner’s mineral collection, which he amassed during his years in Kassel. As the collection is rather substantial, one of our main concerns was to present it in its entirety (as a collection) while still making every single stone accessible to the audience, loosely following some advice from the Suiseki tradition.
