Science & Art for Life's Sake - Documentary Premiere
From 2015 - 2020 the IIASA Science and Art Project investigated how artists and scientists can work together effectively to support the transformation toward sustainability. The documentary film, now screened for the first time, shows how artists and scientists from around the world explored ways in which music, theater, and dance can partner to address a vast range of topics from resource depletion to biodiversity loss, from game theory to climate change, and from mechanisms of cooperation to migration. The resulting performances were presented as plenary sessions, for instance, at the World Science Forum, the International Conference on Sustainable Development, and the European Forum Alpbach, as well as in performance venues such as Carnegie Hall and Harvard University’s Farkas Hall.
