Festive Opening of the Art Installation

Under the title DIS/PLAY, the artist Ralf Baecker has created an artwork especially for our Cluster of Excellence CASA. The artwork transforms the house into a large distributed computer and screen and makes the research topics of our cluster directly tangible. On April 20, 2023, the site-specific installation will be officially opened in the Open Space of Building MC on the RUB-campus.

Register here to participate in the event! We look forward to welcoming you at our event!
