Can we deal with our lives and this (mostly complicated) world in different ways than usual? Could this be where happiness lies?

The WUNDERKAMMER series of events combines music, science, and philosophy with a somewhat different view of the world, starting from selected everyday phenomena. The mirror cabinets of the historical Wunderkammern (cabinets of curiosities, or cabinets of wonder) offer us a productive, sensory echo chamber where today’s experiences are related to and resonate with figures of thought from ancient and Renaissance times.

The cabinets of wonder ca. 1600 – the precursors of today’s museums – presented their frequently bizarre exhibits from art, crafts, nature, and science in a holistic “world context” that is often missing today. Taking this as their inspiration, the Neuköllner Oper creates its own, new WUNDERKAMMERN, bringing together a curious audience with experts from music, science, and art.

WUNDERKAMMER wants to play with new perspectives and ways of looking at things, create shared spaces of experience and thus open up new access to knowledge. In each of the four planned events, selected musicians and experts from different scientific disciplines will be gathered around a thematic focus. The moderated talks will combine facts and insights of the experts with sensual experience, among other things through live music, and in this way open up new perspectives.

The WUNDERKAMMER series kicked off with two programs in the fall of 2019. Due to its success, a new series featuring four programs will be held in cooperation with and with support from the Schering Stiftung.
