EU Horizon 2020-project ARTIS

“Art has the power to change public debate, because it has the power to change each of us”.

ARTIS (Art and Research on Transformations of Individuals and Societies) is an EU Horizon 2020 project that will run from 2020 to 2024 and will investigate the impact of design and art in an international consortium that includes institutes of psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, but also art schools from across Europe. Among the consortium partners are the Berlin School of Mind and Brain at the Humboldt University of Berlin and the Interdisciplinary Forum Neurourbanism.

The goal of the project is the scientific investigation of art experiences and their effects – on an individual and societal level.

The Interdisciplinary Forum Neurourbanism has the task of supporting the collection of empirical data on art experiences in the city and also of communicating the results to stakeholders in politics, civil society and the general public. Some questions we will explore are: What can art do in urban space – for one personally, in terms of health and perspective creation? What forms of architecture challenge us aesthetically? What role can urban planning and architecture play in addressing the challenges of our time?
