The exhibition is to be presented at the Senckenberg Museum Frankfurt from 12. February until 2. June 2020.

The project „Making Crises Visible“ provides an experimental approach to the themes of the Leibniz Research Alliance “Crisis in a Globalised World”. In cooperation with students of the University of Art and Design Offenbach and the project partners of the Research Alliance, it is planned to design hybrid “Science-Art-Objects”, clips and posters, in the course of two semesters. These objects can be seen as a creative processing of scientific findings, which speak to the audience in an emotional and unexpected manner. The aim of the announced workshop is to bring the participating researchers and art-students together, in order to generate ideas for the artistic realization of the researcher´s findings. As a conclusion to the project, the scientific findings and artistic realizations are being presented in an exhibition.
