The Debate – The Power of Opinion Polling

01.08.2017, Berlin | The political year 2017 is edging towards its climax: the federal elections on September 24. Who we vote for depends on a variety of factors, and predicting the results is much more difficult today than it was even a few years ago. Is opinion polling in crisis? Or is it more powerful than ever in influencing our voting decisions? These and other questions around the power of polls will be discussed as part of the platform “The Debate” at the Lecture Hall Ruin of the Charité Berlin on August 31, at 7 p.m.




In the Case of Side Effects, Please Consult Your Algorithm

These and other questions will be addressed by a Digital Salon entitled “In the Case of Side Effects, Please Consult Your Algorithm,” which will be held at the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society on August 30, at 7 p.m.

Creative Competition "Suicide Is No Solution!"

19.07.2017, Berlin | Suicide is a topic that tends to be hushed up in public, and those who are not directly affected generally avoid dealing with it, for understandable reasons. The project “Suicide Is No Solution!” by the Crisis Hotline Berlin is a competition that encourages young people to engage with the difficult topics surrounding adolescence and suicide. Until August 20, young people can submit poems, photographs, images, films or songs and thus come up with creative “prevention messages” for themselves and their peers. The winners of this year’s Creative Competition will be presented at ZOO PALAST on September 7, 2017.

Open Call: On Display – An Artistic View on Computational Neuroscience

Acousmatic Lectures Series

26.06.2017, Berlin | The Acousmatic Lectures Series in Berlin presents a program of unconventional interdisciplinary lectures: Listeners engage solely with the abstract verbal and acoustic information of the speaker’s voice and thus are confronted with the act of listening itself. The series kicks off on July 6, 2017, at 7 p.m., with a talk by Prof. Sabeth Buchmann. Additional lectures take place on July 13 (Prof. Dr. Birgit Schneider), September 14 (Prof. Dr. Hans-Jörg Rheinberger), October 19 (Dr. Alex Arteaga), and October 26, 2017 (Prof. Dr. Markus Gabriel), all at 7 p.m. at the Errant Sound Project Space.
