Beyond science and art: The role of intuition

Tuesday 11 October 2022 - Thursday 13 October 2022
Snellius Building
Niels Bohrweg 1
2333 CA Leiden
Museum De Lakenhal - Exhibition Imagine Intuition
Museum De Lakenhal - Exhibition Imagine Intuition

In an increasingly complex and technological world with rational decision-making, human-centered concepts such as intuition are increasingly being acknowledged to play a pivotal role.  However, intuition is as such still underexposed in scientific research and the concept is not well understood.  We aim to set up an interdisciplinary art-science workshop on intuition,  in order to unravel this concept. More specifically, we will create a contextual conceptualization of the mechanisms via which intuition work both on an individual and interactional level.

Program of the workshop

In the current workshop, both local and internationally-oriented experts from various disciplines related to science and art are invited to disentangle and better understand the distinct concepts of intuition. We make use of a multi-method approach, including artistic experiences, lectures, creative brainstorms, and interactive (experience) workshops and performances during the 3-day program.
