A dialogue between scientists and artists creates objects of common knowledge
In October 2018, the project group Sonderforschungsbereich 42*), consisting of art students from the Academy of Fine Arts Munich and physics students from the SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich, went on an excursion to the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, the world's largest underground experimental laboratory for the investigation of elementary particles. There they collected important information and material to develop an artistic-scientific experimental system supervised by the artist Jol Thomson. The first results of this collaboration were presented on 9th February in the Reaktorhalle, Munich.
*) SFB42 does not refer to a Sonderforschungsbereich funded by the DFG, but to an artistic project group; the name, though, was inspired by the DFG research program scheme
