Review of the Subjects to be treated at the exposition

Walkabout through the exposition


Tap water in Stuttgart

Himalaya salt in water

The exposition about the memory of water, initiated and composed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bernd Helmut Kroeplin gives a new approach to the element water and includes the latest scientific findings and an artistic processing of the subject. The exhibition had its debut as an externally led project at the EXPO 2000 in Hannover at the water path. The content of the exhibition and the research is constantly complemented with new findings as well as photographic illustrations from several researcher of the team from Prof. Dr. Bernd Kröplin in Stuttgart and from all over the world. Lectures, international exhibitions and research papers, as well as books bring Kröplins new ideas of the water memory into the world.

The subjects and the artists of the exposition “World in a Drop”


Garden parsley, olibanum and lovage before and after ultrasound

From the source of the water to the ocean - the water “is aware” of the respective itinerary it takes. The microscopic pictures of the latest scientific research on the matter show the information that can be absorbed by the memory of the water. Pictures have been taken by the supervision of Prof. Kroeplin and his team.

Radiation and waves have their impact on water – as much as even the sap of herbage stalks (parsley, olibanum, lovage) is apt to react in a sensitive way when under the influence of ultra sound, micro waves and x-rays to give but some examples. The pictures of the various drops have been taken by Joachim Schöck, Marianne Eberl and Bodo Leuthner.

The pictures (above: 1, 2, 3) have been taken from the new book "Die Geheimnisse des Wassers", which comes out in autumn 2016. Tableau (left: 4) is part of the research paper "Electromagnetic pollution - A method for the detection of electromagnetic fields in living organism (englische issue)"

The human body is up to 70% water, we and our body react on electromagnetic impacts and vibrations - this is shown by the water droplet photos of M. Hein, J. Schöck, S. Staib and others. Interesting and amazing are the impacts of music and ultra sound, which we can detect under the darkfield microscope in a modification of the structures in the water droplets. An absolutely new field of our research is the documentation of the impacts of water desalination and water optimization facilities, and about the sensible impact of the experimentator onto the research. More informations you can find on this website under research or in the BOMRIM paper about "memory and communication of water" by Prof. Dr. Bernd Kröplin.

The exhibits of Inge Just-Nastansky show the change in the water structure by adding into the water stones, plants, various salts, precious stones and metals. Also light, sun rays or sound may change the picture of the structure of respective drops.

Bach’s oratory, rock music or the sound of a harp: Sound and music will leave extraordinary and most impressive designs on the water surface. Alexander Lauterwasser has photographed some of them.

The artist Ruth Kübler invites you to a fantasy trip while exposing her pictures of various drops.

Our exhibition history of the Expo 2000 via India to “Flieges Symposium of water”

Meanwhile we were able to show our exhibition “World in a drop – Water has a memory” to many interested visitors. Please come virtually to some of our exhibition places or become inspired by impressions of vernissages and lectures. Actual dates you will find here.


"Fascination water" in Nuremberg 1.5.2016 - 31.8.2016

Our "World in a drop" explains the "Memory of water" with 15 exhibits. The exhibition "The fascination of water" is an exhibition for all senses. Therefor the exhibition has over 100 various stations to feel, to see, to hear and to discover water. This is so amazing and exciting, that the curators of the Field of Experiences for all the Senses chooses the theme "water" again. »Amazement, discovery, experimentation and experiences« is the motto in Nuremberg 2016. For more informations please look here.


Our World in a drop at "El mundo fue plano/The world was flat" im Museo de arte Zapopan, Mexiko

The Curators of the exhibition are Francois Bucher and Lina López. This is how they describe their exhibition idea:

"The title of this exhibition announces a voyage through time, a seemingly chronological history of major transformations of time and space. This history seems to be linear, but it is so only in appearance. The title names the evidence that time and space mutate as consciousness mutates. The sailors who sailed with Christopher Columbus were afraid of the abyss at the edge of the earth and of the monstrous creatures they expected to find there. Taking our departure in this image, we may consider that for at least 1500 years a prior to this voyage, experiments, such as those conducted by Eratosthenes in 200 BC, had successfully proved the roundness of the earth. But nevertheless, to Columbus` men the world was still flat.

Our world today is made up of three dimensions, which places us firmly on a globe. This is the state of mind of our contemporary civilization, even if higher dimensions are comprehended in mathematics and physics; and even if the collapse of space-time - as we understand it - has found a scientific expression in the field of quantum mechanics.

How does an idea take shape over time? How does the emergence of a technology - a means of transport, a means of navigation, a means of recording, for example - durably modify our consciousness and our relationship to space and time?

The exhibition presents a group of contemporary artists whose works open perspectives on these fundamental problems. The passage from a flat to a round world, and beyond, is marked by shifts in consciousness. This is the thread of the exhibition - which is laid out as a journey - where instruments of man take a major role."

"The world in a drop" in the light installation at the Embassy of France to Thailand from 27.11. to 11.12.2015

French light designer Matteo Messervy designed an artwork, which could spread the world about the environmental concerns and the challenges related to global warming. He combines the architectural qualities of the main building of the French Embassy to Thailand with his monumental visions. In his artwork he displays different natural settings in motion (also water images from our exhibition "World in a drop"), portraying the great variety of our planet's ecosystems and their peculiar dynamics. This artwork has been revealed at the occasion of the project Galleries' Night, organized by the French Embassy to Thailand, and was shown until the end of the Conférence de Paris, on December 11th (informations and photo were taken from the website: http://www.artcop21.com/events/6292/).

Ausstellungs- und Vortragsgebäude Urania Berlin

Exhibition „World in a drop“ at the Urania Berlin

From Oct 16, through November 10, 2006 we presented our tenth exhibition at the Urania in Berlin

This was one of the most successful exhibitions of the Urania Berlin throughout its existence. For the accompanying lectures on the subject “Memory of the Water” there had to be organized a simultaneous line to a second lecture room, due to the large amount of interested people who attended. One lecture had even to be repeated. The popular demand was a source of great pleasure to us, since installing an exhibition is always plenty of work. How delightful then, if the guests respond enthusiastically. Part of the Urania-Exhibition, among others, were the photographs of “phenomena of drops” by Ruth Kübler, sound pictures by Alexander Lauterwasser, photos of water drops by Inge Just-Nastansky as well as water analysis of our own research on the subject “Water and the Organization in Vital Systems”. Influences were shown of mobilephones, mikrowaves, ultrasound and phenomena of depressive moods, among others. Head of the exhibition: Prof. Dr. Bernd Helmut Kröplin


The ninth exhibition April 3 – 7, 2006 was shown in connection with the international fair “Water in Berlin 2006” at the exhibition center at the Funkturm in Berlin.


The eight exhibition May 25 – 29, 2005 was host at the “30. Day of Church in Hanover”. The exhibition hall “Globalisation” invited by “Bread for the world” showed eleven selected large sized exponats titled “Water as victual” (or everyday necessity water).


The seventh exhibition March 17 – 20, 2005 was included in the fair “Wellviva” in Stuttgart.

Tranquility is the source of strength – but how could you find your inner calmness, how could you gain strength for business, family, deadlines, and in the hectic of daily routine. What you could do for your health and how you could balance your body and soul – this you could learn at the fair “Wellviva”, the fair on wellness in Stuttgart.

The special exhibition „Vital Water“ focused on the healing and “doing good” effect of water. Associated with this special exhibition in hall 4 we presented selected exponats of the exhibition “World in a Drop” for the first time.


The sixth exhibition „World in a Drop“ took place October 1 – December 30, 2004 within the artistically supported program of the exhibition “Renewable Energy for Sustainable Development and Climate Protection“ in India.

Besides research projects to subjects as photovoltaic, agriculture, wind energy and biomass water is a central issue for the Indian subcontinent. Not only in the sense of a developing project: clarification and purification of sewage into drinking water is one aspect of the exhibition – transmission of information and the memory of water within the art-forum will be the other.

In India, there was shown a selection of the photographs from the successful exhibition “World in a Drop” as well as some new samples, see attached photos. The exhibition was organized by, among others, the Society for the Promotion of Development Oriented Projects (VEV), Stuttgart in collaboration with the Institute for Static and Dynamics for Aerospace Constructions (ISD) in Stuttgart.
