Tomás Saraceno – AEROCENE – ABGESAGT

 Leider muss der Vortrag von Tomás Saraceno im K21 krankheitsbedingt diesen Mittwoch 17.5. kurzfristig entfallen. Wir bedauern das sehr! Ein neuer Termin ist in Planung - vermutlich im Wintersemester 2017/18. Wir werden Euch rechtzeitig informieren.

Due to illness unfortunately we have to cancel the talk with Tomás Saraceno in K21 this Wednesday, May 17. We sincerely regret this! However we will try to postpone the talk to the coming months, most likely it will take place during the winter semester. We will inform you in time.


​Lecture Series

Aerocene is an open-source, multi-disciplinary project that foregrounds the artistic and scientific exploration of environmental issues. In the wake of the Anthropocene, the project promotes common links between social, mental, and environmental ecologies.Inflated only by air, lifted only by the sun, carried only by the wind, towards a clean and sustainable future.
Tomás Saraceno’s oeuvre could be seen as an ongoing research, informed by the worlds of art, architecture, natural sciences, astrophysics and engineering; his floating sculptures, community projects and interactive installations propose and explore new, sustainable ways of inhabiting and sensing the environment. In 2009, Saraceno attended the International Space Studies Program at NASA Ames. The same year he presented a major installation at the 53rd Venice Biennale, and was later awarded the prestigious Calder Prize. He has held residencies at Centre National d’Études Spatiales (2014–2015), MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (2012–ongoing) and Atelier Calder (2010), among others. His work has been widely exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions, and is included in the collections of MoMA, New York; SFMOMA, San Francisco; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Berlin; among others. Saraceno lives and works in and beyond the planet Earth.
