10 years of AoN_Association_of_Neuroesthetics

BORDERLANDS. ART AND NEUROSCIENCE IN DIALOGUE

Roter Salon, Volksbühne Berlin

September 28, 2018


In 2018 the AoN (AoN_Association_of_Neuroesthetics) celebrated its 10th anniversary. With the generous support of the Abbushi family, we brought together neuroscientists, neuro-estheticians, critics of neuroesthetics, artists, poets, curators, as well as friends and family of the AoN to celebrate this event. Over the course of one day at the “Rote Salon”, we discussed in four panels (dedicated to poetry, psychiatry, the history and future of the AoN, and the most recent developments in neuroesthetics) current developments and engaged in artistic presentations and aesthetic experiences (see the leaflet of the event), followed by an afterparty with Lamin Fofana.
