Crossing Fibers: A Neuroretrospectroscopic View

26.08.2015, Berlin | On September 28, 2015, the exhibition “Crossing Fibers: A Neuroretrospectroscopic View” will open at the Humboldt Graduate School. The art exhibition, organized by The Neuro Bureau e.V. (TNB), will bring together the works that best represent the synergy between neuroscience and art in a five-year retrospective. On the final day of the exhibition, on October 2, TNB invites to the symposium “Different methodologies, languages and goals: How do artists and scientists communicate?”. It focusses on themes of the aesthetic and epistemic status of brain images.
