We invite you to join the conversation on the multifaceted significance of fungi, in which experts from art, architecture, biodiversity and science meet. The dialogue is followed by an open discussion - your input is most welcome!
Under the title "Mutations in Urban Development: Fungi as a Societal Agents and Generator of Ideas", Maxwell Mutanda (designer, scientist and artist/Zimbabwe, and fellow of the Mutations residency) will discuss with Prof. Dr. Vera Meyer (biotechnologist and artist TU Berlin) and Prof. Sven Pfeiffer (architect and designer, HS Bochum) from MY-CO-X: What is the significance of fungi as a source of ideas for a sustainable and at the same time innovative future? And what perspectives do artistic impulses offer on scientific questions?
KfW Stiftung collaborates with the initiative tinyBE. living in a sculpture and contributes in cooperation with Akademie Schloss Solitude to the programme with the conception of a tinyMONDAY. Within this framework, observations from the discursive programme of Mutations will be further developed.
