The 42nd Hybrid Talks will be our first live audience event, which is also reflected in the title: Cohesion. While the term often refers to social unity, it also describes the binding of matter, for example molecules, or even of sentences. A variety of speakers from different disciplines will explore these and other aspects of the subject at the Hybrid Talks. Insights will be given into the structures of proteins and their interactions with cells. The spatial aspects of cohesion will be examined and how the use of digital technologies is radically changing the notion of space and orientation in the world. Interpretations of cohesion and/or unity will also be presented from the realms of fashion and further disciplines. And not least importantly, the event itself will contribute to cohesion when we all come together for the first time in over a year.
The speakers are amongst other the following:
- Prof. Dr. Martina Löw
TU | Sociology of planning and architecture
- Prof. Dr. Juri Rappsilber
TU | Biotechnology, Bioanalytics
- Dörte Meyer
UdK | Artistic assistant at the Department of Plastic and Spatial Representation
The Hybrid Talks aim at promoting mutual inspiration and invite networking. Representatives of different disciplines encounter each other and share their perspectives on the topic “Cohesion” through short 10 minutes presentations. After the talks we invite everybody for further exchange.
The Hybrid Talks are a conversation format initiated by the Hybrid Plattform, a project platform of the Berlin University of the Arts and the Technische Universität Berlin. The platform serves the cross-disciplinary exchange of art, science and technology.
