„Chemistry meets Art“ – Sabine Wrabetz exhibits at MPI for Chemical Physics of Solids
The Wolfgang Johannes Hönle – Foundation for „Art and Chemistry“* allows the opening of a new art exhibition with works by Sabine Wrabetz at the MPI CPfS in Dresden this month.
„Chemistry meets Art“ will show over 22 of the artist’s works this autumn. The exhibition will be inaugurated by the artist herself on Thursday 19th September. Everyone with an interest in art and or chemistry is invited to join the vernissage at 4 p.m. at Nöthnitzer Str. 40. Musician Jasmin Kogan will enrich the event with her songs. All works will remain at the institute for display on working days until the end of the exhibition on 19th November.
The research at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids (MPI CPfS) in Dresden aims to discover and understand new materials with unusual properties.
In close cooperation, chemists and physicists (including chemists working on synthesis, experimentalists and theoreticians) use the most modern tools and methods to examine how the chemical composition and arrangement of atoms, as well as external forces, affect the magnetic, electronic and chemical properties of the compounds.
New quantum materials, physical phenomena and materials for energy conversion are the result of this interdisciplinary collaboration.
The MPI CPfS (www.cpfs.mpg.de) is part of the Max Planck Society and was founded in 1995 in Dresden. It consists of around 280 employees, of which about 180 are scientists, including 70 doctoral students.
