The interdisciplinary lecture series of the Cluster of Excellence »Matters of Activity. Image Space Material« (MoA) presents scientific positions from the cluster. Myfanwy Evans is a Professor at the Institute for Mathematics, University of Potsdam

As a school of design, the weißensee school of art and design berlin plays a leading role in the cluster of excellence »Matters of Activity«, which is based at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The Cluster »Matters of Activity. Image Space Material« aims to create a basis for a new culture of materials. The central vision of the Cluster is to rediscover the analog in the activity of images, spaces and materials in the age of the digital. Biology and technology, mind and material, nature and culture intertwine in a new way. In this context, the interdisciplinary research and development of sustainable practices and structures is a central concern in areas such as architecture and soft robotics, textiles, materials and digital filters, and surgical cutting techniques.

In this context, lectures by Prof. Dr. John A. Nyakatura (Morphology and the History of Forms, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Peter Fratzl (Biomaterials, Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces), Prof. Dr. Regine Hengge (Microbiology, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) and Dr. Michael Friedman (Philosophy & Mathematics, Cluster of Excellence "Matters of Activity") have already been held in 2019.


The series will be continued.

Supervision: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karola Dierichs
