Over 130 early- and mid-career researchers from all over the world met in Halle (Saale), Germany, for the GYA’s Anniversary International Conference of Young Scientists and Annual General Meeting in early May 2019. As part of the conference, the GYA working group Science & Art = Peace and Justice held an exhibition in cooperation with the Kulturstiftung Sachsen-Anhalt in the Art Museum Moritzburg Halle (Saale).

The exhibit was presented by ArtSci Nexus, an international, open platform centered around collaborative aesthetics between the arts and sciences. The mission of the Nexus is to facilitate the creation of in-lab artist residencies in university settings in order to generate long-term partnerships across disciplines. Once established, the teams work with scientific themes, data sets, and tools and techniques to constructively critique the scientific process, visualize research, and work towards contributing to new methodologies and approaches.

Four active Nexus teams were presented during the exhibit in Halle – Arrhythmia, Neural Module, Bacteriality, and the Well-Tempered Brain – alongside guest project Dolphinet, guest sound artist Miriam Akkermann from the German Young Academy (Die Junge Akademie), and a children’s book publication by GYA member Dmitry Alexeev (Russia).
