MARGARET AND CHRISTINE WERTHEIM - Value and Transformation of Corals
Sat 29 January – Sun 26 June 2022, Museum Frieder Burda

Coral reefs all over the world are being devasted by global warming. In response to this environmental tragedy, artist sisters Margaret and Christine Wertheim have been creating a handicraft retort. Their Crochet Coral Reef is at once a vast simulation of colors and forms inspired by the Great Barrier Reef and a collective act of art-making that engages thousands of people around the globe. An elegant mix of art, science, mathematics and community practice – realized through the lens of craft – the project was exhibited at the 2019 Venice Biennale. Now, Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden presents a comprehensive tribute to Museum Frieder Burda Lichtentaler Allee 8B 76530 Baden-Baden www.museum-frieder-burda.de the two artists’ oeuvre in the form of a museum-wide installation. Udo Kittelmann, artistic director of the museum, has curated the exhibition in close cooperation with the Wertheims.
