Making Crises Visible
Science matters, of course, but often seems to be complicated, unclear and difficult to understand. The project “Making Crises Visible” provides an experimental approach to the themes of the Leibniz Research Alliance “Crisis in a Globalised World”. Researchers from PRIF, the Cluster of Excellence “Normative Orders” and Goethe University Frankfurt work together with students of the University of Art and Design Offenbach to develop ideas for the creative presentation of research outcomes.
In the course of two semesters students of communication design, stage design, free art and media create posters, objects, videos and installations that transfer scientific content in unexpected ways to the audience. The projects aim at creatively visualizing methods and findings of exemplary research projects and at raising awareness that crises not only bring about negative consequences but may also have constructive potential. The “Science-Art-Objects” will be exhibited at Senckenberg Naturmuseum Frankfurt in spring 2020.
The students presented their first ideas and drafts at the annual conference "Crises of a Globalised World" on 12 and 13 December 2018 in Berlin (click here to see photos of the event).
On February 11, 2020, the exhibition of the art project "Making Crises Visible" will be officially opened at the Senckenberg Museum of Nature in Frankfurt. Event page (in German).
