How do we achieve enlightenment? What role is science given in our society, and what role myth? Do we need to find alternative categories for experience and alternative approaches to awakening consciousness? These questions are all raised by the artist Carsten Höller (born 1961, in Brussels) in his show in the Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin. Höller explores the myth of 'soma' - a drink with healing properties known among Verdic nomads in North India in the 2nd millennium BCE that promised enlightenment and access to the divine sphere, which was commonly used in rituals. The drink's main ingredient is no longer exactly known to us; ethnomycologists and philologists generally posit the fly Amanita mushroom as the substance responsible for its effects. Set against this backdrop, Höller has devised a fantastical scenario that stands at the crossroads between art and science, laboratory and dream, supposed objectivity and heightened subjectivity. An oversized, three-dimensional tableau vivant unfolds before the viewers' eyes as they look down from a tribune. In the middle of this set-up, a hotel room is perched on a mushroom-shaped platform, giving guests the opportunity to spend the night in the museum and to dive into the world of soma

"In his exhibition Soma at the Nationalgalerie im Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin, Carsten Höller traces the origin of the fabled liquid of the same name in his search for another world. Eulogized in song in the Vedas, soma promised knowledge and access to the divine sphere. The identity of the plant from which it was made is contested evern today. Not an exhibition catalogue in the typical sense, this publication not only introduces the main themes of the exhibition, but also features a collection of historical and current writings and research on soma from the early eighteenth century to the present. Soma: Documents therefore presents the reader with excerpts of the very source material that serves as the historical and scientific basis for Carsten Höller's artistic work. The texts are accompanied by extensive illustrations featuring views of the exhibition installation."--P. [4] of cover
