Special events
Neurart Exhibition
Neurart Exhibition
Venue: Other Location
Art in nerv cells, nerve cells in art. The exhibition will be thourghout the conference site, where these pairs of neuroscience and art are put in parallel. On one side you will find a microscpical or macroscopical preparation of the brain or other neuronal strutures, while the other side will show a piece of art with remarkable resemblance.

 

Every field of science has its own beauty. Human anatomy and histology, as the description of the morphology of the human body at macroscopical and microscopical level, is also beautiful. This has been used by artists for thousands of years. However, it was not known that many times they depicted structures invisible to the human eye. This raises the possibility that what we, humans, find „beautiful”, is already inside us, and nature has created nearly all forms that artists intentionally or unintentionally create as beautiful. Within morphological sciences, one of the most beautiful fields is neuronal morphology. This implies that beautiful are the organ and cells that make us percieve, realize and think about beauty. This beauty gave the inspiration for finding these pairs of science and art. It was not an exceptionally hard task. Knowing one side of the story as a neuroscientist and anatomist, the pieces of art offered thousands of similarities.
