Transparency is the focus of the 40th Hybrid Talks. The presentations will range from such subjects as visual transparency to the revelation of facts. At this event translucent materials, optical processes and translucence or even permeability in architecture will take center stage. Transparency will also be discussed as it relates to decision-making processes, supply chains and in the context of the provenance of art works – even honesty and sincerity will play a role. Experts, researchers and creative professionals from the fields of art history, fashion, nonlinear optics, architecture and communications strategy will strive for clarity and transparency in 10-minute lectures and will show us how they achieve it.

The speakers are the following:


Die Hybrid Talks laden zur gegenseitigen Inspiration und Vernetzung ein. Vertreterinnen und Vertreter verschiedener Disziplinen treffen aufeinander und beleuchten aus ihrer Perspektive das Thema »Spekulation« in kurzen Präsentationen von je 10 Minuten. Der Austausch über die Grenzen einzelner Disziplinen hinweg wird im Anschluss an die Vorträge in lockerer Atmosphäre fortgesetzt.

Die Hybrid Talks sind ein Veranstaltungsformat der Hybrid Plattform, der disziplinenübergreifenden Projektplattform auf dem Campus Charlottenburg.
