The fascinating four

Letting loose the elements on campus!

University of Potsdam | Campus Golm / Address: Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 24/25, 14476 Potsdam OT Golm

Sunday outing for curious people: An afternoon with music & science inspired by the elements

The teachings of the four elements as a model of human world explorations can almost be regarded as the mother of scientific inquiry. This is why the Music Festival 2017 visits one of the key regional science locations. The University Campus in Golm where the library's "black meteorite" and new research buildings strikingly set the architectural scene becomes the venue for a whole range of discoveries. Apart from meeting with experiments and renowned scientists you can enjoy mini-concerts and exciting musical performances: sound researcher Klaus Fessmann tunes the stone memory of the earth and brilliant vocalist David Moss gives his "Fire Speech", the funkiest "lecture" you will ever hear. Enjoy!
