Moderation by: Karin Christof

Today scientists and artitst who worked for the project will introduce themselves to the audience and talk about their experiences of collaboration. After a guided exhibiton tour the three editors of the ISOE publication Daniela Swarowsky (curator of the exhibition project), Samuli Schielke (head of the scientific research group) and Andrea Heister will talk about the book and answer questions. In this book, the researchers, artists, and guest authors document and reflect about the process that resulted in the ISOE exhibition through essays, artwork produced for the exhibition and documentary imagery. The experience of these cooperations/collaborations tells about the dynamics, possibilities, and limitations of academic-artistic co-working practice in general. Rather than providing definite answers, the coming together of research and art creates a third space of openings and experimental formats of reflection and engagement where the world can be conceived in new and different ways.
