Performing Yourself?

18.10.2017, Berlin | Self-presentation is as old as the history of mankind. And yet it seems to reach an unprecedented scale in our time when technology makes it possible to display yourself any time and without great effort and globally disseminate these images via YouTube, Facebook or Instagram. Does self-presentation happen according to predefined rules? What about self-presentation in the digital age? These questions will be addressed by Prof. em. Dr. Gunter Gebauer and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Engler during a salon evening entitled “Performing Yourself?” at the Komische Oper Berlin on November 13, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. The salon continues the successful collaboration between the Komische Oper Berlin and the Schering Stiftung of the last three seasons.





17.10.2017, Berlin | As part of the artist-in-residence program KLAS, the Max Planck Institutes of Colloids and Interfaces and of Molecular Plant Physiology invite the public to the first KLAS Workshop, “AESTHETICS get SYNTHETIC: Knowledge Link through Art & Science.” The workshop is an opportunity to bring together scholars and practitioners to jointly discuss and reflect on contents, approaches and methodologies that draw the link between synthetic biology and artistic research. It will take place in the Central Building of the Max Planck Campus in Potsdam-Golm on November 27–28, 2017. Please register here: https://klas.mpikg.mpg.de/workshop/

Perspective Isomorphs – an Experimental-Artistic Approach as Theoretical Approach in Organic Chemistry

27.09.2017, Berlin | A new project at the Justus Liebig University of Gießen fosters an unusual interdisciplinary encounter between the visual arts and organic chemistry. The epistemologies of both disciplines overlap in an experimental research setting: In this conceptual art project, sculptures are modeled in the size of a molecule with the tools of chemistry, while an epistemological principle of art, the so-called central perspective, is applied to the analytical framework of chemistry.

Lecture Series: Life in Numbers - with Rob Phillips

04.10.2017, Berlin | During the 2017 summer term, the Integrative Research Institute of Life Sciences at HU Berlin hosts the colloquium “Life in Numbers.” The colloquium features lectures by outstanding international scientists who present their current research in the field of quantitative biology. On October 12, 2017, at 4 p.m., Rob Phillips from the California Institute of Technology, USA, will give a talk entitled Drunken Sailors, Coin Flips and How to Read Genomes.” He will show how simple tools from statistical physics can be used to predict the level of expression of different genes, and describe precision measurements used to test those predictions. In addition, he will describe unexpected ways of using the physics of information transfer first developed at Bell Labs for thinking about telephone communications to try to decipher the meaning of the regulatory features of genomes.

Why We Eat What We Eat

04.10.2017, Berlin | Our nutritional behavior is one of the most complex and fascinating human behaviors. The wide variety of what we eat and the flexibity when, where and with whom we eat, shows the high adaptability of normal nutritional behavior. It is determined both by conscious processes and decisions and by unconscious processes and habits. In her lecture, “Why We Eat What We Eat,” the health psychologist Prof. Dr. Britta Renner presents different explicit and implicit control mechanisms of nutritional behavior and shows how we can change nutritional behavior. The lecture takes place on October 20, at 7:30 p.m., at the Berlin Museum of Natural History. Registration is required at: http://bit.ly/2fwNFzW.
