Upcoming pubilcation by Roman Kroke edited by the Berlin University of the Arts:
Kroke, Roman : Microplastics and Medusae – Expeditions into H₂O. Interdisciplinary pilot project on the plastic pollution of marine environments. Berlin University of the Arts. Technical University of Berlin. Verlag der Universität der Künste Berlin (October 2019).
In its main part, the publication will document the projetc realised by Roman Kroke in 2017/18 with a mixed grouo of students from diverse disciplines of the Berlin University of the Arts (visual communication, fine arts, music, …) and the Technical University of Berlin (environmental engineering, biotechnology), in partnership with 13 scientific research institutes. As a fruit of this project, Roman Kroke has been mandated by the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (Leipzig/DE) to pursue this interdisciplinary exchange between the arts and science by accompanying an international collective of scientists during the expedition SO 268/3 on the research vessel SONNE crossing the Pacific Ocean from Vancouver (Canada) to Singapore (May-July 2019). As an annex, the publication will therefore also contain a documentation of this partnership.
The publication is financed by the Commission for artistic and scientific projects KKWV.
