Systems, Relations, Situations

Hans-Jörg Rheinberger, Yutaka Makino

What do art and science have in common and what distinguishes them from one another? Over the course of three evenings, stipendiaries of the UdK Berlin (University of Art) discuss this question with their guests.

An evening dedicated to the experimental systems in art and science.


“It (experimental system) is a device that not only generates answers; at the same time, and as a prerequisite, it shapes the questions to be answered. An experimental system is a device to materialize questions. It cogenerates, so to speak, the phenomena or material entities and the concepts they come to embody." - Hans-Jörg Rheinberger


A lecture by Hans-Jörg Rheinberger, Director of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, will be followed by a performance by Yutaka Makino. Moderation: Alberto De Campo, University of the Arts.
