Ami Silverberg, Tony White, and Christopher Wilde. Pratt students Ken

Nicole Degenhardt, Lisa Glauer, Martin Jeuf, Achim Kramer, Stephan

“Missing Link” was inspired by a 2004 symposium held in Brandenburg,
Germany, for research scientists and artists. The exhibition is the
second in a series of cross-disciplinary exhibitions at Pratt. The first
was “Crossing Disciplines/Drawing” last spring.
The exhibition is supported in part by the University of the Arts
Berlin/Institute for Art in Context; Charité Medical School of Humboldt
University, Berlin; and the Berlin Museum of Medical History. The
project was originally conceived by Wolfgang Knapp University of the
Arts and Cornelius Frömmel Charité Research Centers.
Visitors can enter Pratt Institute’s campus on DeKalb Avenue or on
Willoughby Avenue between Hall Street and Classon Avenue. For directions
