Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics I


INHABIT invites artists to spend three months creating new work, or further developing an existing project, in a scientific research environment.


The integration of artistic thinking and knowledge as reflective practices in their own right is an important dimension of the institute’s mission. For this the presence of art and the inspiration and challenge of artistic practice are essential.

Work developed during the residency will be presented in cooperation with various local arts institutions in the form of an exhibition, performance, concert, or other mode of presentation, and complemented by discursive formats.


Collaboration and interaction between science and art.
