»The Library of Knowledge Maps«

Since 2014 I applied the »Thinking Hands« collaborative drawing method with scientific research teams and their expertise within workshops as an intuitive and broadly understandable communication tool. This experience lead me to the thesis that these visualizations are helpful to establish transdisciplinarity between scientists of diverse fields and the public. It occurs to me that the arts might take a connective and therefore central role inbetween research disciplines and society. I intend to test this thesis within a research project called »The Library of Knowledge Maps – Research on Arts-based Communication and Participation between Public and Science« and currently apply for funding.
