During the summer of 2015, Satellite Salon presented its first exhibition project, ON THE EDGE, at the stunning eighteenth century Tieranatomisches Theater at the Humboldt University, Berlin. We invited seven artists – all participants of our salon evenings – to produce new work in dialogue with objects from the university’s scientific collections. Our artists, Annie Cattrell, Simon Faithfull, Agnes Meyer-Brandis, Lucy Powell, Andrea Roe, Nicole Schuck and Wolf von Kries, created exciting films, sculptures, installations and drawings in response to a diverse range of collections from the departments of Biology, Anatomy, Geography, Mathematics, Physics and Media which included models, maps, specimens, plants and the collection spaces themselves.

Following a highly successful opening night, our collaborators and previous salon evening guests, Jochen Hennig (Hermann von Helmholz-Zentrum für Kulturtechnik at the university) and Felix Sattler (curator at the Tieranatomishches Theater) were instrumental in organising the exhibition symposium held on 17 June 2015. We thank our esteemed speakers: Prof. Dr Horst Bredekamp; Prof. Dr. Gerhard Scholtz; Prof. Dr Reggine Hengge; artists Nicole Schuck and Beat Brogle; Dr Petra Lange-Berndt; Prof. Dr Wolfgang Schäffner; Prof. Dr Anke te Heesen, and Anna-Sophie Springer.
