Under the motto "SENSE – The Power of Perception!" BIOTOPIA – Naturkundemuseum Bayern invites you to its BIOTOPIA Festival for Science and Nature. On 1 and 2 October, you can immerse yourself in the world of sensory perception of humans, animals and other species.
How does our perception work? What senses do we have in common with animals and plants? What does a robot feel? The Corona crisis has shown how strongly the loss of the senses of taste and smell or the restriction of human communication influence our existence. But how can sensory perceptions be altered or deceived? And what does all this have to do with ecological issues and current research?
The BIOTOPIA Festival "SENSE" explores the sensory world in the context of science and society with partners such as the Max Planck Society, Helmholtz Zentrum München or the State Natural Science Collections of Bavaria and many more. At the interface of bio- and neuroscience, art and design, the festival brings the world of perception to life in a variety of formats: A diverse stage program, exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations and workshops, hands-on science, live performances and exciting hands-on activities invite curious people of all ages to get active, discuss, ask questions and get answers.
