THU, 15th April 2021, 1 pm. (Rep. from MON, 5th Apr): Welcome to the conversation stroll with the Art4Science-trio Eleni, Heinrich and Bela. How to describe a liquid biopsy process in pedriatic cancer research – and how to explain it to the public? The ‚role of communication‘ makes up the main part of the recordings in the first episode of the broadcast. A talk about cancer will never be performed without emotion, but art can open a special way to get new perspectives in looking at cancer cells and processes – e.g. by building new environments, by using metaphors or, generally, by ‚thinking out of the box‘. The artistic view widens scientific fields and helps to reflect the research the specialists are working on. – For listening to the second episode of ‚Interplays‘, klick here.
Eleni Tomazou and Heinrich Kovar are scientists at the St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research Institute (CCRI), Bela Borsodi is a photographer and artist in New York and Vienna. The project Art4Science enables the scientists of St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research Institute to develop a specific method of collaboration, by working with artists of different fields. In order to present scientific processes and research works in an innovative way, the artists will create music pieces, visual works of art and fashion collections as well. To provide the public with first-hand information, the meetings will be documented in radio shows and podcast recordings.
