Science often strives to push the boundaries of the known world to explore new topics and make the invisible visible. In addition to a purely scientific documentation of research objects, sometimes images are created that feature surprising aesthetic forms and structures — abstract works of art from a world normally hidden to the human eye. For the exhibition “Images of Science”, scientists from the more than 80 research institutes of the Max Planck Society provide images showcasing their work.
The multimedia audio guide to the exhibition offers you exciting insights into the discoveries and methods behind the images. They range from the uncovering of the human body’s long unknown defence strategies to the exploration of dark matter in the universe, from the function of novel solar cells to the documentation of art historical treasures. In addition to the audio explanations, you will see many more pictures, and you can also select films, slide shows, and supplementary texts on the various topics.
