Understanding others is one of our basic abilities and fundamental to social life. Yet, the question of how we understand and feel with others has been approached and answered differently by the scientific disciplines. The arts follow different strategies in putting their respective audience in the position of others.

The conference “The Fascination with the Unknown: The Other”, organized by members of the German Young Academy, brings together artists and scientists from different fields to enter a dialogue on the common yet mysterious phenomenon of understanding each other.

With the workshops, performances and talks, the symposium aims at integrating each participant’s valuable insights into an experience that is more than the sum of the individual contributions.
