«The Future of Art and Science Collaborations»

Scientific research, artistic practice and society are increasingly intertwined. Artists and designers collaborate with scientists and science is looking for ways to integrate artistic practices. Unlike traditional science communication, these approaches foster new ways of knowledge production by engaging with different communities. Yet, our understanding of their impact is limited. Questions remain about equal collaboration, exchange formats, quality criteria, and funding structures. The EcoArtLab of the HKB, in collaboration with the mLAB (Institute of Geography, University of Bern), hosts a discussion with different Swiss funding representatives to explore these questions within existing structures.
