UdK Award for Interdisciplinary Art and Science

The UdK Award for Interdisciplinary Art and Science aims to give the impetus and opportunity to artists (fine art, media, architecture, design, music, theatre, visual communication etc.) and scientists to work between the priorities of the arts or between the arts and science. The prize will be awarded on a biennial basis and is endowed with 7,500 Euros.

As art and science are moving towards one another, discovering common issues and working methods, the creative, imaginative processes in the arts and sciences are similar, whereas the concrete realisation of their results tends to differ. Repeatedly, this difference is the source of productive tension and areas of friction. In all disciplines of the arts and sciences, further developments over recent decades have been characterised by mutual influences and efforts at differentiation. Today, traditional dividing lines between the spheres can no longer be maintained; they are being newly defined and presented in their permeability.

The deadline for entries is 31 May 2010. Individuals and groups are eligible to participate in the competition. Full-time employees of the UdK Berlin, as well as students of the UdK Berlin and other colleges/universities are excluded.
