Symposium: im\Perfections

im\Perfect Figurations in Nature, Culture and Technology

During the summer semester, two researchers from different disciplines meet every other Thursday to discuss the limits of perfection and the potential of imperfections in natural organisms, hybrid bodies, synthetic materials and technical ensembles. The lecture series also provides a forum for discussions on the political and ethical implications of the term. The lectures and discussions are held in German and in English.
