Please note:
On May 23, 2019, the exhibition closes already at 4 p.m.

In the exhibition “22 – Molecular Communication” by Sissel Tolaas at the Schering Stiftung the fragrances of Müllerstraße are presented in a staged laboratory environment. The equipment for this comes from the stock of the chemical and pharmaceutical company Schering, which was active in Müllerstraße. The history of Schering AG is explained through the question of how they found their way into the exhibition, and placed in the context of Berlin’s industrial history.

As speakers we welcome Professor Joseph Hoppe, Deputy Director and René Spierling, Head of the Natural Science and Metrology Collection at Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin. In cooperation with the Schering Stiftung, the museum has been presenting the exhibition “Pills and Pipettes. The Chemical-Pharmaceutical Industry, Using the Example of Schering” since 2010 and houses the collection of the former Scheringianum of the Schering AG.
