Academic FREEdoms: Perspectives on a fundamental right


Starts on

19:00 — 22:00

Kino Delphi Lux, Yva-Bogen, Kantstraße 10, 10623 Berlin

Event access: Public

Die Junge Akademie, together with the German National Academy of Sciences – Leopoldina, is organising a film and discussion evening. In short film contributions, several members of Die Junge Akademie report their perspectives on Academic Freedom; how scientific work functions for them, what Academic Freedom means within their respective fields of research, in what ways they may be limited as researchers, and under which circumstances free research is itself limited. After the screening, art historian Nausikaä El-Mecky and oncologist Martin-Immanuel Bittner, both members of Die Junge Akademie, will discuss the different perspectives on academic freedom with scientists from the Leopoldina, such as the the historian Ute Frevert and the jurist Jochen Taupitz. The event is moderated by Yve Fehring, who, among other functions, moderates the science programme “nano”. The idea for this event was developed within the framework of the film project regarding the project group Academic Freedom. The event is part of the campaign “Freedom is our System. Together for Science”, an initiative of the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany. More information about this initiative can be found at www.wissenschaftsfreiheit.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.
