The Sonderforschungsbereich 42 (SFB42) is a fluid research group of artists and physicists based in Munich. Our goal is to produce a third space through an equal dialogue between artists and scientists, within which common objects of knowledge can emerge.
SFB42 was founded by Diogo da Cruz, Amelie Six and Angela Neumair in 2018.

Together with the collaboration partner Sonderforschungsbereich 1258 (SFB1258) “Neutrinos and Dark Matter in Astroparticle Physics” and artist Jol Thoms, we developed our first project #eco_techno_cosmo_logic bringing together students from the Akademie der Bildenden Künste München and from the department of Physics of the TUM.

We are currently working on UNDERCURRENTS - a collaboration initiated by Jol Thoms and Elisa Resconi, with contributions from Simona De Fabritiis, Josua Rappl, Thoms and Lea Vajda. It is an ongoing project coordinated by Diogo da Cruz with the support of Kilian Holzapfel.

The SFB42 builds novel experimental systems, that reconfigure and test artistic and scientific methods, materials and research data.
