The exhibition +ultra. knowledge & gestaltung reveals the fundamental role design processes play in the sciences and humanities. From the hand axe to the digitally monitored organ, from active matter to image-guided actions – the exhibition deals with the increasing interdependence of the human and technological spheres and what challenges arise from this development.
The displays analyse the current merging of the digital and the analogue, as we head towards a completely new material culture. Spotlights on historical continuities as well as on profound transformations in the relationship between nature and culture sharpen our awareness for present developments.
