Art x Science Dialogues Series

Art x Science Dialogues is a new webinar series initiated by Swissnex in China in 2020. The webinar series not only presents artistic projects where scientists and research engineers are deeply involved, but also looks into new interdisciplinary initiatives and trends. Through the dialogues between artists and scientists, we try to stimulate the exchange of ideas between the two different worlds and explore opportunities for collaborations.

We have invited a diverse profile of Swiss speakers to exchange ideas with representatives of the Chinese art and science community. Given that the local art and science scene is still in its infancy, our end goal is to showcase several long-term growth trajectories by presenting the Swiss models, stimulate ideas through cross-border dialogues, and inspire more collaborations in this exciting field. Along the way, we also have two overarching questions that we attempt to answer, namely what is art-science and its position in different societies? We already know that art-science is not merely about using technological means to make and present art. Join us on the journey to explore what art-science could actually mean.
