From November 1st to 10th, Berlin transforms into a hub of scientific excellence and innovation. The annual international science festival is a platform for knowledge, discovery, and interdisciplinary exchange with interactive experiences, panel discussions, and VR adventures.
Are you ready for mind-blowing science communication in various formats? At our company you can embark on a journey of knowledge, art, and innovation and be part of Berlin Science Week 2023 together with our collaboration partner Edge e.V.!
eye square meets Berlin Science Week
Explore together with Edge e.V. how art and neuroscience can help to understand human cognition!
Discovering the Brain through artistic practice
Saturday | November 4th 2023 | 04:00 pm to 08:00 pm Berlin time
EDGE e.V., Kunsthalle, eye square, Schlesische Strasse 29-30, 10997 Berlin
This is an in-person event. Attending the event is free of charge and requires no registration.
This workshop is targeted towards understanding the basics of neuroscience and its methodology to unravel what is magic and what is not. All through art!
With EDGE hosts Enya Weidner, Anna Kanitz and Dimitra Mazaraki you will tackle methodology, history, and clinical applications of neuroscience by creating artworks that communicate neuroscience in a more accessible way.
Interview with Tatiana Lupashina
Learn more about how the EDGE community sees the connections between art and neuroscience
Tatiana Lupashina is a Russian-American neuroscientist and visual artist. She is the Co-Founder and President of EDGE Neuroscience & Art e.V., for which she has been producing and curating multimedia group exhibitions and workshops since 2018.
Together with artist Philip DePoala, they co-created Oculus, an ongoing developing interactive sculpture featuring the neurobiology of the eye and embodying the spirit of EDGE.
Who is EDGE?
Edge e.V. is an international group of artist-scientists researching neuroscience, producing artwork, and exploring experiences shared between science and art. With many members currently based in Berlin, this community celebrates varied perspectives on the intersections between art and neuroscience.
EDGE urges neuroscientists, artists, and the public to humanize the scientist and to explore the border or lack there of between the fields. Their multi-media exhibitions show art of various artists addressing topics around the brain, from and of neuroscience labs, their members, their motivations, and the research findings, to bridge the divide between the lab bench and the outside world.
Why does eye square collaborate and host EDGE-events?
The cooperation between EDGE e.V. and eye square GmbH was initiated by CEO Michael Schießl. Over time, a close collaboration has developed, the symbol of which is the artwork “Oculus” by Tatiana Lupashina and Philip De Poala. This object installation, inspired by the human eye, is currently in the eye square Kunsthalle.
This year, EDGE’s lecture and workshop series “Sensoriality 2023” took place on our premises to great acclaim. The event clearly showed how closely eye square’s studies and research on perception and meaning (Human Experience Research and the topic of “Meaningful Attention”) are linked to EDGE’s artistic and scientific positions on neuroscientific research into sensory impressions.
According to the latest research in this field, the human sensory apparatus proves to be physically and psychologically closely linked to cognition and emotion. The body’s perception of the world is viewed as a whole as a synergetic system of high differentiation and complexity that transcends the boundaries of body and mind to produce meaning.
