The university of Basel creates stimulating platforms to forster exchanges, discussions, and projects across the different research areas. Two of my favourite platforms in this context are the Carte Blanche Events for women professors, and the Forum Basiliense.

In the last Carte Blanche event (group foto featured), we listened to Elena Filipovic, the director of the Kunsthalle Basel and the designated director of the Kunstmuseum Basel , talk about Leadership in Arts. How to make the Future feminine.

In the first Forum Basilience event, we listened to Eva Ipy talk about Progress, Freedom and Social Critique.

Such exchanges with other fields are most inspiring – attend them if you are in Basel! And thank you to the University for encouraging them.
