Content description

The section known under the name Art and Science will change its name to Art And The Oceans. We will initiate a series of seminars, conferences and talks including scientists and artists but specifically focusing on our collaboration with the TBA21 Academy foundation and the research artists are conducting on water.

The first Seminar of the Art and The Oceans series will be conducted by German artist Susanne Winterling. She has been develobing research on the seas that she then transforms into filmic and installation work. She will be inviting a scientist - name to be confirmed -. Susanne Winterling works primarily in film, collage and photography. The various media of the individual installations developed for each of the exhibition contexts lead, altogether, to a whole. Science, literature, and in particular how technology interacts with nature become artistic materials for her work. They can be of a porcelain cup from an erstwhile family manufacturer, a bird's feather that changes color in differing light, the delicate flying fiery spikes of a sparkler or of the historical inscription discovered at an exhibition site.
