This website functions as an online archive assembling contributions produced within the framework of the art, science & business program at the international artist residency Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany. The program was initiated in 2002 and promotes the dialog between the fields of art, science and business. It is based on the idea that these three fields should not be viewed as discrete, but instead as complementary activities. Despite considerable deviations between and inevitable autonomy of these three disciplines, individuals working in these fields are frequently concerned with similar questions, posing these, however, in different ways and via divergent methodological approaches.
To initiate this transdisciplinary dialog, the program develops central topics that function as a platform for discursive encounters which are held in the form of symposia, lecture series, and workshops, often in cooperation with other institutions. The online archive is a compilation of these focal themes, organized along an index with individual terms related to these central topics as well as a list of authors.
