Gesche Holstein, Research assistant Botanical Garden of Berlin:
The exhibition conveys the eventful history of our earth, its high points and striking crises. Plants played a great role in this – and still do.
The fascinating thing about this exhibition is the arrangement of its display panels and spatial perception of time. Even though humans have only been around “for a few centimeters,” they exert a massive influence on subsequent history. Lively descriptions and fascinating images are used to convey the complex contents, such as “The Earth Rusts” or “The Racer Among the Microbes”.
