You are warmly invited to the official opening ceremony with live music on board of the the MS IM-PORT//EX-PORT in Kassel, celebrating the opening of our floating platform for arts and science. From April to October 2012, a decommissioned ship will be transformed into the MS IM-PORT//EX-PORT, a transdisciplinary platform for art, science and teaching on the river Fulda. On the main, upper and sun decks exhibitions, lectures, workshops and collaborative work will take place. The goal of this transdisciplinary project is to bring artists, scientists, students and teachers together in a singular location. The guiding theme is the concept of exchange of life in a state of flow. In a process of investigation and imagination, various fields will be made accessible through dialogue with other disciplines. The project relies on the self-directed participation of representatives of the arts and the sciences.
IM-PORT//EX-PORT is a featured site of the city's official Kassel Kultur 2012 program in conjunction with dOCUMENTA(13).
