Accordingly to its interdisciplinary orientation, the ZiF also promotes the dialog between art and science.
Here we do not rely on direct compatibility and peaceful co-existence between art and sciences, we rather expect individualism, resistance and dissent. In this sense, art exhibitions and performances are a substantial part of our work which is essentially curated by the artists, curators and scholars of our Art Committee.
At the suggestion of the Art Committee, the ZiF occasionally invites artists to stay at the ZiF for a period of three months. These Artists in Residence generally cooperate with the ZiF Research Group and may initiate their own discourses.
