In the beginning the curators of the Koselleck exhibition explained some key ideas and concepts and how these ideas were materialized, medialized and presented within the exhibition in cooperation with designers from the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences. Central to the exhbition was the question how Reinhart Koselleck's concepts could be adequately and creatively shown in form of an exhibitions.
In the second part Lee Chichester, Christin Müller and Gesa Fischer presented different perspectives on the relation between Art and Science in form of exhibitions in museums and for art festivals.
The last part of the Round Table dealt with general ideas about challanges, opportunities and also problems in communicating science as art and with the help of art objects.
The Round Table was part of the exhibition programme Reinhart Koselleck's Images of Time, which is presented from April to July at Bielefeld University, the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) at Bielefeld University and the Bielefelder Kunstverein. The focus of the three-part exhibition is Reinhart Koselleck's central research question, namely the visual dimension of history.
