K21: In orbit - Tomás Saraceno

Suspended at a height of more than 25 m above the piazza of K21 is the enormous installation in orbit, a work by the artist Tomás Saraceno. The physically accessible work is constructed of virtually transparent steel mesh that interlaces three levels spanning the massive glass dome. Five air-filled "spheres" are positioned within the net structure that encompasses an area of 2500 m².
After a guided tour we are invited to enter the installation, and explore it by climbing. Once several people enter the structure simultaneously, it is set to motion, altering the tension of the steel cables and distances between the three levels of the interlaced net.

Good to Know - The German Social Security System

Germany has a reputation for having one of the best social security systems in the world. The social security system is based on five pillars: Health insurance, Long-term care insurance, pension insurance, unemployment insurance and accident insurance. But, how does the system work? Which insurances are available for international researchers being employed or having a scholarship? What are the benefits of statutory health insurance? What to consider when seeing a doctor? What additional private insurances would be beneficial for international researchers? All these questions will be addressed in this information event and there will be enough time for answering your personal questions.
