An Exhibition by the Bundeskunsthalle and the Deutsches Museum, in Cooperation with the UNFCCC and the Deutscher Wetterdienst, will be held at the Bundeskunsthalle (venue of GRESS) during the Global Renewable Energy Solutions Showcase.

The exhibition asks to what extent short-term weather events and long-term climate change influence human civilisation and culture. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach to this highly topical subject, we are showing a wide range of objects, spanning art, cultural history and science from all over the world. Amongst many others the show includes art works by John Constable, William Turner, Gustave Courbet and Otto Modersohn, as well as scientific treasures by Otto von Guericke, Daniel Fahrenheit and Alfred Wegener. The history of meteorology and current aspects of global climate change play a central role in the exhibition.
