Not A Single Bone

2017, civil disobedience intervention + exhibition
To reclaim the museum a public space again. A large specimen, a two-meter-long replica from the femur of the Brachiosaurus at Natural History Museum Berlin is evidence of appropriating data from the museum collections despite them denying access on request. The artists reproduced parts of the skeleton based on the data of the museum with the aim to disentangle the objects biographies from the institutional interpretation sovereignty.
The intervention published at a solo-show ‘NOT A SINGLE BONE,’ exhibition at Nome Gallery, by Nora Al-Badri and Nikolai Nelles, September 9 – November 11, 2017.
