Mutations. A Lecture Series

read more

Starting March 22, on a weekly basis renowned thinkers will offer input lectures followed by an open discussion. Please find the register links below.

"It is time to focus beyond logical systems and to utilise the potential of an inter- and transdisciplinary approach to (artistic) research in order to critically rethink the concept of "Mutations" and, consequently, life."

"Mutations. A Lecture Series" brings together a dynamic group of researchers, artists, thinkers, curators, and scholars. Curated by the fellows of the interdisciplinary artist residency "Mutations" at the Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart, and in cooperation with the KfW Stiftung, Frankfurt, it is the first of several public platforms which are being developed within the scope of the programme. Interconnected with the evolving digital platform, mutations.akademie-solitude.de, which will be launched at the end of March, the lecture series is both an outcome of the programme and a source of knowledge for further discussion. Within the fellows’ individual backgrounds in fields such as fine arts, architecture, music, philosophy, or life sciences, the lecture series aims to contribute a transdisciplinary approach to artistic investigation.

The following experts represent different voices that offer a spectrum of perspectives on the concept of mutations and its multifaceted impact on social, political, and scientific structures.
