Sustained dissemination of our research results to the public and academia is of primary importance to the Centre. To this end, the Centre includes an in-house TransferLab, where new forms of disseminating knowledge and scholarship are developed and tested. Using a multifaceted dissemination strategy, the Centre continuously feeds its key insights into scholarly debates and especially into the public discourse. The Centre’s team of scholars, our international fellows, and local Munich artists come together in the TransferLab to work on new ideas, new projects, and new modes of dissemination.
Our podcasts provide the broader public with easy access to the work that goes on in the Centre. We are developing an interactive exhibition for children aged 9-12 together with Munich schools to introduce visitors to the topic of globalisation. A virtual tour of Munich shows how global processes manifest locally in the city and what role dis:connective elements play in them. The Centre’s artistic research and communication projects, like the common art and art appreciation projects developed with partner institutions, also play an important role in the TransferLab. These range from readings, artist lectures and film screenings to theatrical productions and exhibitions. All our dissemination activities will later be coordinated, archived and made available on a central, easy-to-use web portal.
The TransferLab is our contact point for fellows and researchers, who get our support for transfer of their contents and topics.
