Scientific objectivity has a history. This history can be nicely traced by studying scientific atlases. An atlas is the result of a collective empiricism of a scientific discipline and can be described as a collection of images. These images play an important role in calibrating the eye of the members and academic offspring, of that discipline. The aim of this calibration is to provide some objective detail of the world and to organise scientific images for many uses. A newly founded discipline may be accompanied with an atlas and vice versa. Embedded in the atlas image we find traces of consequential choices about knowledge, (scientific) persona and collective sight. Objectivity as such undergoes subtle changes that shape our view of the world around us (Daston et al. 2007).

However, we also meet the format of an atlas in artistic contexts. There, an atlas does not necessarily detach objects according to pre-established categories, rigorous definitions, or ideal hierarchies: it becomes an operating space, a production surface of the artwork itself. We learn that atlas making ‘is to reconfigure space, to redistribute it, in short, to redirect it: to dismantle it where we thought it was continuous; to reunite it where we thought there were boundaries’ (Didi-Huberman 2011).
What happens when the creation of a scientific atlas is (re)enacted at the margins of a discipline where it meets the (in)consequential choices of artistic research? The project work of the Art & Science master’s course was to investigate this question during winter and summer semesters 2014/2015. The assignment included the research of elected disciplines and sub-disciplines, and their respective atlas tradition; collecting up-to-date examples of atlases in the sciences and the arts; conducting field-work / focus groups with young academics on controversial academic or political issues regarding the field; visualising/representing selected or manufactured phenomena and arranging them into the format of an atlas. This atlas should provide a basis for the collective and empirical knowledge transfer of a newly invented discipline. The atlas format is not restricted to printed and bound organisation of image and texts but may take into account the use of other media. The works of the students, the various atlas versions, will be publicly displayed and discussed at the Angewandte Innovation Laboratory.

Balkan: Humor i satira kao besplatan lijek

Corax o

Corax o “Beogradu na vodi”

Žive li humor i satira na Balkanu? Gdje je satira slobodnija – u Srbiji ili Hrvatskoj? Da li se građani više smiju na vlastiti račun na Kosovu ili u Crnoj Gori? Je li u Bosni i Hercegovini danas moguće osnovati jedan humoristički list?

Koliko su današnja vremena inspirativna za smijeh koji liječi dušu? Branimo li se smijehom od surove realnosti – ekonomske krize i opće besparice? Uostalom, zar sve ne bi trebalo biti moguće izvrgnuti smijehu i satiri – ekonomiju, politiku, ideologiju, naciju, vlast…

Umro revolucionar koji je Miloševiću prijetio prstom

U 96. godini života u petak je u Kranju umro slovenski revolucionar i partizanski prvoborac Vinko Hafner, objavila je njegova obitelj.

Hafner je ostao u sjećanju mnogih Slovenaca po kadru iz 1988. godine, kada je kao delegat slovenskih komunista na zadnjem partijskom kongresu Saveza komunista Jugoslavije s govornice optužio Slobodana Miloševića za protujugoslavensko djelovanje i priprijetio mu prstom, rekavši “Druže Slobodane, pazite kojim putem ste krenuli”, te ga upozorio da njegovi prijedlozi ruše Jugoslaviju i partiju. (More …)
