STATE is a Berlin-based festival and studio for open science, art and innovation. Founded in 2014 out of the Paul-Drude-Institute, STATE stands for a new way of connecting people with science: participatory, interdisciplinary and inspiring.
Integrating research, technology and culture in its thinking, STATE explores current developments in science where cutting-edge research transforms society. It creates a meeting ground for science and the public, where scientific inquiry meets artistic expression. In addition to international projects and temporary gallery projects, STATE now opens its first permanent art and science gallery in Berlin from October 2018. STATE Studio Berlin is supported and developed in partnership with Wissenschaft im Dialog, the German umbrella organization for science communication.
