Nov 9 – 11, 2006

Art, Science & Business Symposium: The “Project“. On the attraction of event form in science, business and art.

Date: Thu, Nov 9, 2006 00:00 Uhr

Duration: Nov 9 – 11, 2006

Location: Akademie Schloss Solitude

In the past years, the word “project” has developed, incidentally and simultaneously as a matter of course, into a central concept of our times. What sort of promises for the future do these inconspicuous words hold that so many conversations revolve around the (unspoken) demand “Tell me about your projects”? Having a high number and broad scope of new projects seems to have developed into its own currency. Whoever doesn’t have one doesn’t count, or has nothing to tell. During the symposium, experts from science, art and business areas will come together with the goal of exploring these powerful “events” or “projects” based on historical and current examples by inquiring into their principle functions.

The symposium was initiated by Markus Krajewski, Scientist, Researcher, and Chair of the department of History and Theory of Technical Culture at the Bauhaus University, Weimar. He was an art, science & business program fellow in 2004-5.

The art, science & business program is made possible by the financial support of the State Foundation of Baden-Württenberg, the city of Stuttgart as well as the LBBW Foundation for Art and Culture.
