Exhibition at the Annual Conference of the Leibniz Research Network "Crises of a Globalized World" in Berlin
Science is relevant for society, but for a broad public it is often not very vivid and difficult to understand. Together with young artists and designers, the researchers of the Leibniz research network "Crises of a Globalised World" would like to enter into a dialogue with society on the subject of "Making Crises Visible" and develop an exhibition for the Senckenberg Museum of Nature in Frankfurt, which will open in spring 2020. The aim is to visualise the procedures and results of exemplary research projects and to create an awareness of the not only paralyzing but also activating power of a crisis diagnosis. Over the course of two semesters, students at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach will design posters, objects, films and installations that will be used to find their own language of knowledge transfer that transcends classical boundaries between genres and disciplines.
The interim presentation for the 2018 Annual Conference shows the first ideas in development that offer associative introductions to the topic in an aesthetic and emotional way. In the following, these will become the starting point for an intensive artistic and creative examination of the dynamic concept of crisis as well as the concrete research projects of the Leibniz Institutes.
