Solo Exhibition EiSZeit – Adventure Ice

SZ Editor Stephan Schön on a Polar Exhibition – Ice World Dresden’s Accompanying Exhibition

Four weeks in never-ending ice – for Stephan Schön, science editor of the SÄCHSISCHE ZEITUNG, from May 23 to June 21, 2017, it was a dream come true. An icy dream. Along with fifty scientists under the direction of the Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research in Leipzig, Schön was part of an expedition on the research ship and icebreaker Polarstern.

For four weeks, Schön wore polar gear and a survival suit, did polar bear duty, and took care of small jobs for the scientists while observing their research firsthand. So how cold was it in the never-ending ice? In spite of the frosty wind, it was fortunately never colder than minus ten degrees – not much colder than the temperatures here at Ice World Dresden.

Ten thousand pictures, fifteen hours of mp3 files, numerous videos packed into his suitcase and of course countless incredible and lasting impressions later – guests can admire the results of Schön’s four weeks in the arctic here at his solo show parallel to Ice World Dresden. The exhibition includes a special edition of the SÄCHSISCHE ZEITUNG “EiSZeit” in 3D, large photographic prints and an accompanying app.

We hope you enjoy!
