Beyond The Edge of Research
Highlights of 20 years Lorentz Center

The exhibition is now relocated in the Leiden City Hall

Information about the exhibition

What can be achieved when we bring together a diverse group of researchers - young and old,
newcomers and Nobel Prize winners, from similar fields and completely different disciplines - for a few days,
in one location, with time to think about research? The exhibition celebrates 20 years of innovative Lorentz Center workshops.

The exhibition has been curated by Marthe Sophie. She is an artistic project developer and artist.
She has a special interest in the relation between imagination and science in which scientific images play an important role (see www.newrealism.org).
