Krisen sichtbar machen

Dialoge zwischen Wissenschaft, Kunst und Design

[Making Crises Visible. Dialogue between Science, Art, and Design]

Published by Springer Verlag, 2021 | ISBN 978-3-658-35079-6

Krisen sichtbar machen continues different dialogues between science, art and design, which were the basis of the interdisciplinary exhibition project Making Crises Visible at the Senckenberg Naturmuseum. The reflections of this exhibition are now given an additional framework that further expands the spectrum in theory and practice. The volume thus takes up the increasingly important debate in all disciplines about new forms of knowledge generation, knowledge and science communication - and asks what contribution these can make to overcoming political, economic and ecological crises. The productive diversity of approaches and forms of knowledge is reflected in the different formats and perspectives it brings together.
