Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Exzellenzcluster Matters of Activity
The aim of the Cluster Matters of Activity is to provide the foundations for a new culture of materiality in the sense of reinventing the analog in the digital age. The development of sustainable, energy-saving artefacts and techniques requires the inseparability of active images, spaces and materials through an interdisciplinary approach in which the humanities, natural sciences and design disciplines cooperate as equal partners. Experimental and design-oriented approaches will be combined with historical analysis in order to draw practical and theoretical consequences.
