Science meets …:

Once a month, the "Science Meets ..."evening takes place at Passage 13, together with regional partners from art, culture, and science.

01-14.03.2021: The exhibition: "We live in a time - artists question their environment".

To kick off the series of events, SILBERSALZ met five artists and asked them to provide their own works on the festival theme. In order to be able to present them in a Corona-compliant way, we will use the windows of Passage 13 as an exhibition display. During the evening hours of 01-14 March 2021, Susanne and Nina Langbehn, Johannes Rudloff, Eileen Farida Almarales Noy and Julius Anger will make contact with the outside world through these windows. They will show cinematic works that symbolise and question the unequal relationship of people to their respective living environments and everyday realities in very different ways.


The >"SILBERSALZ Jugendhochschule" of Passage 13 is a free program for young people. In cooperation with various partners from universities and educational institutions, the SILBERSALZJugendhochschule offers high-quality programs in the fields of science & technology, politics & society, art & culture, empowerment & skills.

Are you interested in 3D printing? Do you want to start your own label? Or are you planning to make it big in the world of finance? Then sign up for one of our courses.

Due to the current situation, the courses will be held online for the time being.
