Lecture, Saturday, 7 November 2020, 4 p.m.
Dr. Angela Strauß: „Der Sammler, der Streit und die Steine. Historischer Kontext zur Nose-Sammlung”
Presentation in German.
Online event via zoom, see below.
In 2018/2019 Angela Strauß researched the mineral collection of Carl Wilhelm Nose together with Oliver Thie. In her lecture she will tell the history of this collection. More than two hundred years ago, the path of the stones led from the Siebengebirge on the Rhine to the Natural History Museum in Berlin. This much can be revealed: it would never have come about without a dispute.
In her current project at the Museum of Natural History, Angela Strauß, as a historian of modern history, is investigating the extent to which donations to collections were accompanied by a politicisation of natural history and what influence their previous owners could have had on the institution of the museum.
