Philipp Lachenmann: DELPHI Rationale


Symposium "Neuroscience and Art" at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection

In cooperation with the Marino Golinelli Foundation and the Ernst Schering Foundation, the Association of Neuroesthetics organizes a symposium on the theme of this year’s 53rd International Art Exhibition, “Fare Mondi/Making Worlds,” at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice. The roundtable discussion will bring together 25 international artists and neuroscientists for a discussion on how our brain actively “makes worlds.”

The theme of the 53rd Biennale di Venizia is of major interest to both art and neuroscience – especially ever since neuroscience has shown that a human brain is not just a passive chronicler of events; it rather is actively involved in creatively shaping and making the world we experience every day.

Based on this interest, the organizers of the symposium on “Neuroscience and Art” have invited a selected group of experts to discuss how the cooperation between art and science can contribute to a better understanding of the human condition and whether the exchange of theories and methods is viable and valuable, both now and in the future.

The symposium is a closed event.
