16. April 2023 to 2. July 2023

The oeuvre of the artist Martin Gremse, whose works are closely linked to the raw materials from the Harz Mountains, is shown in a studio atmosphere. His sculptures made of glass and silver are spectacular, but his pictures, which are often associated with the "colors of the Rammelsberg", also show the close connection between his art and mining in the Harz Mountains.

The exhibition is included in the museums entry.

Supporting program

Gallery Evening
Reading from "Der Doppelgänger" by Fyodor M. Dostoyevsky, edited by Clemens Mädge. Read by Magdalene Artelt and Marie-Thérèse Fontheim.
Then: "Facets of reflections" - interactive dialogue "Isn't my life a piece of material like something out of a novel? (Translated from the german novel: Der Doppelgänger. Fyodor M. Dostoyevsky) The story by Fyodor M. Dostoyevsky is timeless and therefore topical. Then as now, social borderline situations and changing times challenge people. Inner conflicts can arise between the need to be seen and pleasant self-portrayal, as well as in interpersonal relationships with regard to one's own reflection and the mirror of others. The challenges of the media world to become public entangle us humans in an identity conflict between our very own need for intimacy and the unavoidable feeling of pressure from constant observation, evaluation, control, justification. Who's in control? Psychologists and physiologists ask about the importance of the mirror neurons for the collective and the individual way of life? "Everything is a copy of a copy of a copy" (after Credibil -Schlaflos Lyrics). We want to talk about that.
