Concept: Kai Brügge, Julia Klockow

 

Performer: Danial Arabali, Danesh Ashouri, Kai Brügge, Julia Klockow,  Melanie Anna Seeger, Loreto Valenzuela

 

A K T- Die Performance bewegt sich an der Schnittstelle zwischen Akt-Stehen und Tanz. Inspiriert von der meditativen Haltung während des Aktstehens sowie vom anatomischen, wertfreien Blick der Zeichner*innen, der in der Aktklasse kultiviert wird, teilt die Performance diesen Erfahrungsraum in einem performativen Setting. Besucher*innen können dem Geschehen beiwohnen, die skulpturalen Posen beobachten und gleichzeitig sehen, was die Zeichner*innen auf Papier festhalten. Wer spontan selbst mitzeichnen will, ist herzlich dazu eingeladen.

The event was planned to be in parallel to X-mass pop-up shop in the cafe (starting on 11th December) with all the hygiene recommendations. Yet, The Pandemic was right there and could not be generously ignored. On 11th December the new lockdown was announced and SEDANCAFE had to close like many other small businesses. This made my exhibition a solo performance for no audience. Still going on but behind closed doors. The elephant in the room became the elephant stuck in the room. The spirit of artwork on the other hand cannot be kept within walls, so I took a chance to spread the word and show the work online. Over the course of six days, the presented work will be posted online on a daily basis. Every day at 11:45 am sharp, a new artwork should be expected.

NEXUS EXPERIMENT

Brain Awareness week

Project description -  Brain Awareness Week takes place every year from 12th to 18th March - a worldwide initiative of the DANA FOUNDATION aiming at directing the interest of the public to current topics in the neurosciences and related disciplines.

Also, Nexus Experiments took part in 2018. In cooperation with the Chair of Biomedical Microtechnology at the Technical Faculty of the University of Freiburg. We posted some time-lapse images on Instagram over five days. The videos illustrate one of the core topics of research at BrainLinks-BrainTools: How can neurotechnology help people suffering from neurological or psychiatric diseases? And which ethical and social questions are connected with the use of neurotechnology?

Technical illustrations: Danesh Ashouri 

Ethical discussion: Andreas Schönau and Tony Franzky

Comic-workshop for students

An event organized by  Mathilde Bessert-Nettelbeck (University of Freiburg, Cluster of Excellence “BrainLinks-BrainTools”) and Philipp Schrögel (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Department for Science Communication). In two different projects in Germany, one hosted by the organization “Science in Dialogue” (Wissenschaft im Dialog), the other by the University of Freiburg, we implemented an approach that uses comics as an expressive tool to engage youth in a dialogue about science and technology, and their societal implications. While both workshops have been conducted independently, each had the same assessment and expectations on comic workshops as a method to engage youth.
