When Art and Science Meet - Insights into Cross-Disciplinary Collaborations

Podium organisiert von Irène Hediger und Dr. Jasmin Winkler am «Wochenende Im Bild» in der Kunsthalle bei 100 Ways of Thinking

What are the motivations for artists and scientists to work together and what questions and processes do they have in common? How do different points of view challenge disciplinary certainties and expand ways of thinking in the Arts and in the Sciences?

Artists and scientists will give first-hand insights into their cross-disciplinary collaborations and their work in processes and results.
One organization / institution facilitating such collaborations is the artists-in-labs program of the Zurich University of the Arts ZHdK, which draws on 15 years of experience in the field of art-science collaborations and their dissemination into the public realm. The results of these and other collaborations are shared and discussed during this podium.

Panelists: Sascha Frühholz (https://www.psychology.uzh.ch/en/areas/nec/kaneuro.html), Nicola Genovese (www.nicolagenovese.org), Dennis Hansen (https://www.ieu.uzh.ch/en/staff/member/hansen_dennis.html), George Mahashe (http://exposureovertime.yolasite.com), Stephan Neuhauss (https://www.imls.uzh.ch/en/research/Neuhauss.html), Nicole Ottiger (www.nicoleottiger.ch), Aparna Roa (WWW.PORSANDRAO.COM), and Jill Scott (http://www.jillscott.org)
