Lecture

Round Table in english (8pm).

After an introduction to the Arts at CERN program and current challenges in physics, guests will share their experience and answer questions from Ohme Studio and the public.

Monica Bello is a curator and art historian. Since 2015, she is Curator and Head of Arts at CERN, the art program of the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva.
Arts at CERN encourages dialogue between arts and physics, creating new modes of exchange between artists and scientists, asking questions about the links between these disciplines and encouraging artistic innovation and openness to the world of research.

Thomas Hertog is a Belgian cosmologist and physicist who studied physics at KU Leuven and obtained his PhD under the supervision of Stephen Hawking at the University of Cambridge in the UK. He is now a professor in the Institute for Theoretical Physics at KU Leuven, where he heads a research group examining the relationship between the Big Bang and string theory.

Laura Couto Rosado is a Designer, Drummer and apprentice shamman. Her practice evolves beyond the form/function principle and the “solving problem” dogma; it moves towards other paradigms that reflects the complexity and accelerating social changes. She was resident at CERN.

Ohme Studio is a production company curating and producing installations, performances and events. It brings artists, scientists, technologists and researchers together to create new paths for scientific mediation through the arts, and inject advanced technologies and sciences into the creation of new artworks.
Founding member of the collective, Camilla Colombo will moderate the debate.

The round table will be preceded by a guided tour and drinks at 6 p.m.
