Science means breaking new ground. To venture into the unknown and taking risks – even if this holds the possibility of failure.

So does Art.

No one said it better than Samuel Beckett: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”

AMM Cartoon Series "Have some FUNgi"


Our postdoc Charlotte Steiniger started a cartoon series called "Have some FUNgi!" Guess what the cartoons will be about...

This is No.1: "Fungi in love". This picture was prepared for the microbiology information portal of the German Association for General and Applied Microbiology (VAAM): https://vaam.de/infoportal-mikrobiologie/kurze-frage/wie-reden-pilze-miteinander/

„Can fungi be art, fashion or used as building materials? Yes, they can!“


Science and the arts are considered as two distinct, sometimes even diametrically opposite disciplines. Science is based on hard facts, the arts get their power from emotion. And yet…  And yet there is fertile ground for collaborations between the two disciplines. Counterintuitively, even fungi – often invoking negative associations – can inspire artists to create fabulous, breath-taking and irritating objects. Interested? If yes, then read how and why in an article written by Corrado Nai and Vera Meyer and published in the open access journal Fungal Biology and BiotechnologyThe beauty and the morbid: fungi as source of inspiration in contemporary art
