Summary on the symposium Fragile Data by Jochen Stöckmann at DeutschlandRadio on March 2


In the natural sciences, especially in the field of biology, there are signs of a displacement from theory-based towards data-based research. What effects will it have on research operations if the generation, selection, evaluation and processing of data is automated more and more? What new insights will be made possible through the quantification of experimental systems? Which data standards will be developed and how will they influence the daily research practice? Is the image as the main knowledge creator in the natural sciences being replaced? And what effects would such a loss of importance have for scientific fields like media- and visual-sciences or for art history and the arts?

The symposium Fragile Data – conceived by Gabriele Gramelsberger, Christoph Hoffmann and Hannes Rickli – intends to discuss these questions in order to launch the interdisciplinary research cooperation „Computersignals. Art and Biology in the Age of Digital Experimentation“ of the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste.
The symposium is hosted by the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste (ZHdK) in cooperation with the Schering Stiftung and the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
