Exhibition: STASIS and MOVEMENT, the peace before the flight


Thomas Reichstein presents his figurative, life-size sculptures embodying “inner peace” at various points throughout the Dresden Airport terminal. A particularly interesting example is the life-size “Das Liegende Paar” (The Reclining Couple). Other works include abstract mythical creatures that also appeal to children.

The Dresden-based artist explains his intention thus: “The airport is a place where the journey pauses, is put on hold. You set off full of vigour at home, get to the airport, check in and drop off your baggage. And then, once you have completed all the formalities, you experience a unique phase of relaxation. You can stroll around, meditate or enter into a dialogue with artworks.”

Exhibition: “Sachsen hebt seine Schätze”

Saxony’s State Agency for the Environment, Agriculture and Geology (LfULG) presents a new exhibition on the Departures level of the terminal: “Sachsen hebt seine Schätze” (Saxony unlocks its treasures). The aim of this exhibition is to open up the subject of geology to everyone.

Ausstellung  Sachsen hebt seine Schätze

Visitors walk through a mock-up of an underground mining gallery with interactive screens on which they can immerse themselves in the fascinating world of minerals. Not to be missed by young and old alike is the eight-square-metre hidden object picture that tells the story of mining in Saxony right up to the present day. Exhibits such as the model of a geothermal heat plant vividly demonstrate the role geology plays in our everyday lives today and how it can be used to generate energy. 

Part of the exhibition is dedicated to the ROHSA 3 project. Saxony has a wealth of data on meticulously explored mineral deposits and detailed information on deep geological strata. This data is being digitised and made accessible through a search engine as part of the ROHSA project.

The exhibition will be open until April 2019. Admission is free.
