The Research Department organises an annual “Research Apéro”. Interested parties can take part in the presentations of current research projects and then connect with the researchers through more in-depth conversations.
Research Apéro 2022
On the 7th April 2022, HKB researchers provided insights into their current project activities within the framework of artistic performances, presentations, and a poster exhibition.
What is being researched at the HKB? This year, Carmen Effner and Lucy Gmelch reported on a new process aimed at preserving ink-damaged paper. Bruna Casagrande, Nathalie Noorlander and Fabiana Senkpiel looked at artistic works made from food and how these can be kept accessible for posterity. And Leo Dick showed how Switzerland has developed its own music theatre tradition since 1945, which has created its own identity.
This event was framed by an exhibition of the projects “Punkt, Punkt, Komma, Strich” and “Sprechende Bilder” as well as a poster session.
Book launch and panel discussion
In autumn 2020, the HKB published “Arts in Context – Art, Research, Society” (transcript).
The editors Thomas Gartmann, Christian Pauli and the authors invited the public to a book launch and panel discussion on the 30th October 2020, where Thomas Strässle discussed visions for applied research in the arts with Claudia Mareis and Arne Scheuermann.
