The Interdisciplinary Laboratory Image Knowledge Gestaltung operates a systematic international strategy involving close partnerships with Latin American partner universities and scientists.

The international “Open Design” master’s programme and the Summer Universities give young scientists from Latin America and Berlin the opportunity to do joint research.

Alongside the visiting academics and international researchers in the basic projects, the cluster also awards two visiting professorships. In this context, the connection between inter-cultural competence and the international characteristics of structuring knowledge is important. The Berlin museums function as an international showcase of cultural encounters, supporting international exchange and the joint investigation of objects in the collection.
