"You can't have a system in which you don't have anything" Says CERN Theorist Diego Blas in the film Small Survey on Nothingness. His words are now the curatorial driver of a 4-day programme at artgenève, which includes a trip to CERN (see the programme here).
Diego is very active in Arts@CERN and was interviewed by the filmmaker and Arts@CERN "Visiting Artist" Christoph Keller, for this project commissioned by Schering Stiftung. The film is being screened at artgenève.
Also this Saturday 31.1, Ariane Koek, Founder and Creator of Arts@CERN, will talk about creativity and CERN's engagement with the arts. She will then be joined by Diego Blas, and Christoph Keller in an open discussion. Find out more about the programme.
