micro-exhibition and presentations of Euratom Projects

The Department for Ontological Patchworks (Dr. Bernd Kräftner) presents:


micro-exhibition and presentations of Euratom Projects

by students of Art&Science class, University of Applied Arts



The task of the students, during the course of the Euratom project, was to elaborate a work from the title of a scientific paper. The titles were drawn from a chance find of five cards of a card index of unknown origin. For the (scientific) outsider these titles presented themselves as an opaque and intransparent piece of information . They were all published in the late fifties in the Soviet Union and other Warsaw Pact states. Superficially, it could be assumed that they were connected to the cold war that, at that time, entered into its' hot phase that culminated a few years later in the cuba crisis. No additional background  information was available. The students were asked to find a key to open the rather obscure subject matters (e.g. "Calculation of a point detonation with counter pressure taken into account" [1957], or, "The determination of the formation constant of indiumacetylacetonate by an extraction method" [1958])and to connect those subjects to a personal concern.
