A lot of our scientific culture is quite opaque – almost like a black box in some cases . Particularly for young scientists it is usually quite difficult to get a clear and real/honest insight into the life of a scientist. What is typically communicated are polished results, straightforward careers and an overly idealistic view of science. 

The aims of the project Black Box Science are:

  • start discussions about various topics concerning our everyday scientific lives
  • learn from each other and start solving issues
  • offer young researchers a better insight into the real scientific world

Get a glimpse at global memories of war as well as hopes for peace, liberty and Human Rights of young people from all over the world! First-hand memories of World War II are fading. Only very few eye-witnesses are still alive and able to tell their stories. What remains? What does our connection to World War II look like today? histoVOICES is an artistic approach to grasp our thoughts, fears and fragile memories of what happened 75 years ago. Different national and social backgrounds and their impact on narratives are not masked, but allowed to exist simultaneously. Let’s learn from each other!
