Day 2 in Berlin

On the second day I went to visit a contemporary Art Collection at the, "Museum fuer Gegenwart", in "Hamburger Bahnhof."

There were some particularly intriguing exhibitions on in the museum, one to catch my eye was an installation by Belgian born artist, Carsten Holler.
Holler holds a doctorate in Biology and puts his knowledge in Science to good use as an artist, concentrating predominantly on the nature of human relationships.

The artist had created a remarkable scenario that questions the relationship between art and science, laboratory and dream.
The installation consists of twelve male castrated reindeer, reindeer urine, freezer cubes, refrigeration units, snow, twelve canaries in aviaries, frozen/dried fly agaric mushrooms and four mice.
