Expedition Anthropocene

17 days, 6 scientists, 1 project; following this motto, six members of Die Junge Akademie embarked on an expedition to Ecuador from 22.2.-9.3.2020. With access to several climatic zones and glaciers, the country offered the ideal destination to study progressive climate change and its effects on people, glacier retreat, biodiversity, acoustic ecological changes and micro-plastic occurrences in snow and ice. Yet the focus was always on the question: How is research actually done today?

After the screening of a short film, shot during the expedition, our members Miriam Akkermann (Musicology, TU Dresden), Christian Hof (Biology, TU Munich), Dirk Pflüger (Computer Science, University of Stuttgart) and Ricarda Winkelmann (Physics, PIK and University of Potsdam) share their insights and experiences. Participants are invited to discuss climate change, its effects on humans and nature, and the role that science has to play.

The event takes place via Zoom and is held in German. To participate, please register by 5 pm on 29.06.2020 here

    • 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.
