1 min read

For the Dresden Long Night of Science, teachers, masterclass students of the HfBK Dresden and guests showed current research results in the foyer of the Kulturpalast and in the COSMO Science Forum and invited visitors to join in. And never before have so many night owls been out and about: 48,000 guests attended in the anniversary year. A total of 52 organizers spread throughout the city invited visitors to lectures, exhibitions and hands-on activities.

Exciting presentations of artistic research were prepared for the HfBK as part of the project EU4ART_differences. Claus Schöning, master student of the HfBK Dresden and scholarship holder of the Artistic Research Lab of the HfBK Dresden, discusses different issues on the one hand as sociological and economic phenomena, on the other hand he researches, in cooperation with the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences Vienna, art materials that can be compostable and thus leave room for the future. Together with Prof. Dr. Michael Sauer, Institute of Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnology at University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, he gave a very lively presentation and answered interested questions from the audience.

In the GreTA research project, in collaboration with the Institute for Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology (ILK), TU Dresden, Carl Ahner, staff member for Theater Sculpture at the HfBK Dresden, presented how theater sculptures can be produced in a more environmentally friendly way using new technologies.
