“Corona’s lockdown: a scientific experiment on climate” / Podcast

Interview with Climate Impact Researcher Chen Chris Gong in conversation with UdK Class Experimental Film and Media Art Last year in the beginning of corona`s Lockdown we started a year of digital encounters. We met various scientists, artists and experts which inspired us to look at our surroundings in a more sensed way. During the Seminar “New forms of research” which was conceived by Christina Landbrecht and Prof. Nina Fischer we focused on what the shutdown has done to our perception of time and space. And together we tried to understand what role of the artist could be at this moment. Art Historian Christina Landbrecht has been Head
