The brain is one of the last great mysteries of the human body. What is it that we have inside our heads, and how do we envision mental processes? Is ourself something other than our body, and how do we make sense of the world around us? What will the brain of the future look like? Will we become computer-aided cyborgs? It takes the cooperation of many disciplines to tackle these questions.

Brain research is constantly delivering new insights, but it also continues to face many unresolved questions. Art can give us the freedom and the detachment to consider thinking and feeling, consciousness and perception, memory and dream. In this exhibition, associatively linked works from the realms of art and cultural history are presented side by side with cutting-edge scientific research in order to explore and better understand the unknown territory that is the human brain.
