Dust completely surrounds us, and one day, like it or not, everything will inevitably turn to dust. Not only the combating of dust, but also its exploration, provides the point of departure for numerous research endeavors in the fields of natural science, engineering, and cultural studies. The publication Staub: Eine interdisziplinäre Perspektive (Dust: An Interdisciplinary Perspective) links such contributions made to dust research with artistic projects. Analyses and insights from science and art, as related to dust’s ability to blend, circulate, and spread, foster an interdisciplinary perspective on this element from our environment that is so pervasive yet so often unheeded.
With contributions by Julia Feldtkeller, Daniel Gethmann, Anna A. Gorbushina, Andrés Gutiérrez Martínez, Sabine Kacunko, Slavko Kacunko, Roland Meyer, Bertl Mütter, Ursula Sorz, Ernst Stadlober, Wladyslaw W. Szymanski, Klaus Torkar, Bettina Vismann, Anselm Wagner, and Monika Wagner.
Daniel Gethmann and Anselm Wagner teach in the Institute of Architectural Theory, Art History and Cultural Studies at Graz University of Technology.
