diejungeakademie@ home: Aesthetics and Abstraction

Event

Starts on
17.06.20

19:00 — 20:00

Zoom

Event access: Public

In light of current government advice on coronavirus, the members of the Junge Akademie will continue the event series diejungeakademie@ virtually until further notice.

Aesthetics is considered to be the doctrine of beauty - often linked with sensuality. Aesthetics - so it seems - always requires the perception of spectators. Is there an aesthetic quality to the abstract ideas of architecture, design or mathematical proof? If so, what does "beauty" or "elegance" mean in this context? And if not, how can beauty be distinguished from arbitrariness?

Benedict Esche (Architekt, Kollektiv A, München) und Timo de Wolff (Mathematician, TU Braunschweig) will talk about these and other questions at this evening's event, which is part of the series diejungeakademie@. From different perspectives they seek to approach the relationship between aesthetics and abstraction.

It is an open discussion format in which all participants are welcome to join in the discussion.

The event takes place via Zoom and is held in German. To participate, please register by 5 pm on 17.06.2020 here: www.anmeldung.diejungeakademie.de

    • Workshop „Künstler*innen über Kunst“ ('artists on art')

      Talking about art: For some artists, the linguistic construction of an artistic programme or an artistic position is an inherent part of their work. Others see it as a challenging communicative task to speak and write about their own art in professional contexts or in front of a critical audience. In addition to individual differences, there are also differences specific to art forms and media.

      The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop organised by the Working Group Language is to shed light on the broad field of artistic communication.

    • Interdisciplinary workshop "language use in science and humanities"

      In this workshop we want to try a little experiment “on our own” and compare scientific texts from different subjects to see how they use language to present scientific results. We are not concerned with an exact linguistic description of individual phenomena, but rather with our spontaneous impressions: How do texts from other disciplines affect us, which stylistic features surprise or irritate us, what seems familiar to us? What linguistic means do the articles use to present their problem/question? What is considered as 'fact' in each case? How is the argumentation made?
