Call for Participation

Post-disciplinary colloquium for artistic, scientific and artistic-scientific research

The Berlin Centre for Advanced Studies in Arts and Sciences (BAS) and the Hybrid Plattform are initiating the first joint artistic-scientific colloquium of the Berlin University of the Arts and the Technische Universität Berlin from the summer semester 2024. The aim of the colloquium is to bring together young academics and emerging artists from both universities to jointly discuss new ways of thinking and concepts.

Apply for the first two dates on 14.5.2024 and 19.11.2024!

How do we want to live in the future?

A wealth of scientific, technological and artistic research projects pose this question in very different ways and with very different ways of thinking. In times of social polarization, climate emergency, biodiversity crisis, wars and other crisis scenarios both locally and globally, it is necessary to discuss across disciplinary boundaries what the future could look like in its intellectual, artistic, social and cultural dimensions. The colloquium therefore focuses on artistic, artistic-scientific and scientific questions with a view to current social phenomena and discourses and offers a stage for projects that work on transformation topics such as the climate and biodiversity crisis, sustainability, social cohesion, decoloniality, digitalization and new technologies.

PhD students, 3rd-cycle researchers and academic and artistic staff in particular are invited to present their research topics and current projects for discussion. The colloquium offers space for content-related experiments and hopes for an open exchange between the disciplines and faculties of the TU and UdK. In addition to the professional exchange, BAS and the Hybrid Platform offer the opportunity to present projects in digital spaces and thus we aim to make a lasting contribution to networking and transfer to the public.
