Science & Art
The dialogue between disciplines – in particular between the sciences and the visual arts – has been burgeoning for years. Especially science institutions have discovered art as a medium to intelligibly communicate their specialized knowledge to a broader public. The Ernst Schering Foundation, however, is interested less in science communication than in a dialogue between artists and scientists at a more fundamental level. To this end, it launched the Forum on Science and Art as early as 2005. The Forum aims both for an exchange of methods and approaches and for a dialogue on socially relevant issues and topics.
In addition, the Foundation in 2009 opened the Project Space for Art and Science at Unter den Linden, which serves as a platform for exhibitions, lectures and workshops at the interface of science and art. One focus is on the presentation of "art as research."

ON RESEARCH – Knowledge Generation in Art and Science
16.04.2012, Berlin | What scientific methods are used by artists, and what artistic approaches are used by scientists? These and other questions will be at the heart of ON RESEARCH, a two-day program at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW), which takes place in the context of a conference on “Research in Art and Science. Challenges to Discourses and Systems of Knowledge.” The conference and the artistic program, which is open to the public, are a collaboration of the Center for Movement Research at the Free University of Berlin, the HKW, the Ernst Schering Foundation, and Sigrid Gareis.
Never Mind – a “Neuro Performance” at the Sophiensæle
10.01.2012, Berlin | What is our self, what is capable of destroying it, and how can it be recovered? These and other difficult questions are at the heart of “Never Mind,” an interdisciplinary stage production by choreographer Sommer Ulrickson and molecular biologist and writer Giovanni Frazzetto. The play “Never Mind” an experiment at the interface of science and theater, will premiere at the Sophiensæle on January 25, 2012.

Code and Material – Algorithms in Art
Interdisciplinary Conference on “Body Images in Art and Science”
|On September 7-11, 2011, the Young Academy at the Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina held an interdisciplinary conference on “Body Images in Art and Science” at the Rondo Convention Center in Pontresina (Switzerland). The Ernst Schering Foundation supported the conference as an interdisciplinary dialogue platform on body images in art and science.
Sound / Space / Body – A Process
|The interdisciplinary artistic research project “Sound / Space / Body – A Process” will have its première on May 28, 2011, at the Radialsystem V. Under the direction of choreographer Louise Wagner, neuroscientists, philosophers, and dancers put the physical awareness of self at the center of an interdisciplinary study inspired by an installation by the pioneer of sound art: Prof. Bernhard Leitner. In her project, Louise Wagner uses the medium of dance to study the perception of sound, in order to communicate a different – physical – way of hearing through seeing movement.|
English Theatre Berlin: "An Experiment With An Air Pump"
|As part of the series Science Theatre, the English Theatre in Berlin presents "An Experiment With An Airpump" by English playwright Shelagh Stephenson. The play - prepared and presented in cooperation with scientists and students of the Institute of Biology and Microbiology at Freie Universität Berlin - is a transdisciplinary cooperation project at the interface of natural science and performing arts. With two compelling examples from two different times in history, Stephenson addresses the topic of prenatal diagnosis, the human body as research object and the role of women in science. She explores the question of how much morality science can take – and how much it needs. The Ernst Schering Foundation supports the production for its innovative cooperation between Artists and Scientists and its approach to social and ethical aspects in science.|
