Sound Installation "Ubiquity"


The sound installation Ubiquity can be heard daily from 1-12 December 2021 at the KlanGalerie in Berlin. It was developed by the sound artist and musicologist Miriam Akkermann (alumna of Die Junge Akademie) in collaboration with the programmer and composer Andre Bartetzki and the psychologist Eva Alisic (alumna of the Global Young Academy) as well as the psychologist and neuroscientist Philipp Kanske (alumnus of Die Junge Akademie). The starting point for the artistic work is a study on trauma processing in children by the psychologist Eva Alisic from the University of Melbourne. Aspects of the study are brought to life sonically on 18 Plexiglas panels equipped with transducers.

The Middle East as a utopia? 
Where could concrete starting points for new utopias in the region lie, beyond the realm of day-to-day politics? Simon W. Fuchs and Caspar Battegay of Die Junge Akademie will discuss these and other questions with other experts at the Theater Neumarkt Zurich.


Workshop "Life with measurement: futures in the present"


In an interdisciplinary workshop, the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, together with Die Junge Akademie, puts the practices of surveying as part of everyday life up for discussion. The event aims to challenge the title of the BBAW's current annual theme 2021|22, "Die Vermessung des Lebendigen", in that the workshop does not juxtapose the practices of surveying with the living, but puts them up for discussion as part of everyday life.


Colloquium „Doing Asymmetry“


Bettina M. Bock and Thorsten Merl are organising the colloquium "Doing Asymmetry: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Verbal Behaviour and Pedagogical Practice".

On four dates, researchers will talk about the concept of asymmetry from linguistic, educational and sociological perspectives. What theoretical foundations and what implicit semantics exist in the disciplines, and in what way are they compatible with each other?
