The Zoo-cabinet in the gallery dieschönestadt is devoted to our constantly changing notions of nature and animals. Based on the model of the Baroque curiosities cabinet, it assembles bizarre, serious and endearingly kitsch collector pieces of flora and fauna, turning the gallery into a contemporary natural history cabinet. The exhibits have been loaned private collectors, by the city museum Stadtmuseum Halle and the foundation Franckesche Stiftungen.
