#eco - techno - cosmo - logic

Application call for a science & art project eligible for KTA Master students

The SFB1258 “Neutrinos and Dark Matter in Astro- and Particle Physics” at the Physics Department is now starting an application call for an extraordinary art & science project within its outreach program together with the SFB42, a group of artists and art students from the Academy of visual Arts in Munich.

KTA Master Students are invited to take part in a project called #eco – techno – cosmo – logic that involves a small group of 14 students, to the one half art students, to the other half KTA Master students, lead by the London based artist Jol Thomson and colleagues from the Academy of visual Arts. The project includes a trip to the Gran Sasso underground laboratory with a visit to the experiments CRESST, Gerda and Borexino, foreseen for November 2018, and a pre-workshop from 29. – 31. October 2018 at the Academy of visual Arts.

Since the SFB42 was invited to propose the project to the prestigious 1:2 award endowed by the Academy of visual Arts honoring interdisciplinary art projects, the realization of the intended last part of the art & science program is subject to the results of the award jury due mid of September. For this last part, a conference performance in Munich and London is proposed for March 2019 based on the previous work and outcome.

If you are a KTA Master student, curious to get to know more about arts, interested in working together with art students and committed to dedicate time and energy to this extraordinary interdisciplinary project, please send your application to: petra.riedel@tum.de, including a motivation letter (ca. half a page) and information on your background. Especially first semester KTA students are encouraged to apply.

Application deadline: 20 September 2018

If the number of applicants exceeds the number of places, we will decide on the basis of the motivation letter.
