The project

The HfG Offenbach cooperates with the Leibniz Research Network "Crises of a Globalized World" to make complex research results more visible and comprehensible to the public. At the first joint workshop with students and teachers from the Faculty of Art, the research results were presented and discussed as a kick-off event for a two-semester course. Science has a high relevance for society. However, applied methods and functional interrelationships do not arrive here because they are published in a language that is incomprehensible to non-scientific recipients. The researchers of the Leibniz Research Association would therefore like to enter into an open dialogue with society together with young artists and art students and transport applied research methods and findings in such a way that they are accessible to the general public. In Design-Thinking-Workshops scientists and artists develop a new language of knowledge transfer. Under the artistic direction of Prof. Klaus Hesse and design-scientific support from Felix Kosok, the interdisciplinary thinking students from the art faculty will design hybrid "knowledge-art objects", films and posters, which speak to the audience both emotionally and in an unexpected way, from the focal points over the course of two semesters. In a joint exhibition, the proposals developed become transmitters of the scientific hypotheses and study results of the crisis network. Visitors can experience and change the objects and interactive films on research projects, some of which can be walked on. Crises should not be understood as a mere escalation of a problem, but as a transformation process with immense creative potential, which serves as a starting point for reorientation. The exhibition will be accompanied by a supporting programme of panel discussions on current crisis issues with experts from politics and science, which is intended to diversify artistic interventions. In this way, the exhibition planned for spring 2020 will be highly topical and socio-political discourse will be promoted.
