The Frankfurter Kunstverein is the cooperative partner of the exhibition „Edmond’s Prehistoric Realm – A Dinosaur Excavation in Frankfurt“ and invited the YRD.Works artist collective to design the presentation room where science can be experienced first-hand. The concept comprises three stations: the temporary building where scientists present their results; a “tapping area” where the visitors can examine rocks to discover their own fossils; and the new presentation of the Edmontosaurus mummy in the museum.

In a specially constructed building designed and implemented by the artist collective YRD.Works in cooperation with the Frankfurter Kunstverein, visitors will be transported into a paleontological preparation laboratory. Here, they can watch how the dinosaur bones are being processed. In addition to the excavation circumstances, the exhibition will also showcase the bone bed’s journey from Wyoming to Frankfurt and introduce initial scientific findings gathered from the excavated fossils.
