The first interdisciplinary (OU)VERT symposium in Copenhagen is announced for May 18/19 2017. Under the title Un-Greening Green: Materials – Metaphors – Media – Misunderstandings philosophers, artists, art historians, science and technology scholars, researchers from the natural and the medical sciences will confront positions inherent in the pervasive greenness trope and debate contradictions emerging with its migration across different cultures of knowledge (final programme to be announced in March).
As a collaboration between the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, the event will take place in the historical auditorium of the Medical Museion. It is supported by Goethe-Institut Dänemark and the Institut Français. Participation in the conference is free of charge. The event will be concluded by a special performance by the artist group HeHe at the CLICK Festival in Helsingør from 19 to 21 of May.
