AURA/AURORA Intervention & Round Table discussion on Art & Science collaboration, 22.5.2015, Vienna
Date: 22. 5. 2013
Place: Durchhaus Art Space, Werdertorgasse 17, 1010 Vienna
The breath-taking Polar lights – Aurora – fascinate, scare and raise questions about the unknown. Therefore, they are matters of inquires in natural sciences as well as in the humanities and social sciences. At the same time they inspire societies in creating collective myths, stories and agency. Not least, they inspire artists to reflect, interpret and intervene with this spectacle. This event unravels and contests perceptions of the Aurora phenomena among artists and scientists.
Please don’t miss the beauty of Polar lights and a related roundtable with renowned scientists from various disciplines. You will also hear about developments of the Arctic Council. After the discussion, please join us for refreshments.
The event organizer kindly asks for feedback, in case of acceptance, including the number of persons accompanying . Friends and family are warmly welcome. The project addresses arts and science lovers of any age!
