Currently new dimensions of research are being discussed. The interconnection of scientific and artistic practices plays an important role here. The Tuesday talk provided insights into interdisciplinary projects that pursue different methodological approaches. Using eight contemporary examples from the field of art and design, Beatrice Barrois showed how to obtain a research attitude that uses both scientific and design methods. She then presented some TOOLs that are useful for studying at the Faculty of Design of the FHWS.
