Panel discussion in German language
No registration required.
How does science inspire art and what thoughts do artists provoke in scientists? How do they communicate with each other and with society?
The artist and sculptor Susanne Winterling and the bioengineer Simone Schürle both deal with the question of how obstacles inside and outside the body can be overcome and what humans can learn from bioluminescent bacteria. In fall 2020, Susanne Winterling will exhibit her work on this topic in the project room of the Schering Stiftung. The process of creating the exhibition will be accompanied by a continuous exchange with the scientist Simone Schürle. In an interview with Katja Naie, Managing Director of the Schering Stiftung, the two discuss the interface between art and science.
