The strategic partnership of Bern University of the Arts and Tongji University in Shanghai was the context for a seminar at the College of Arts and Media at Tongji on “Culturalizing Scent“ with Claus Noppeney in November. The delegation including Prof. Jürg Neuenschwander and Jingting Hu from Swissnex China was warmly welcomed by Prof. Hua Dong, Dean of the College of Arts and Media at Tongji University.

The seminar with faculty and students was also an opportunity to promote the upcoming Y Think Tank New Materiality & Beyond. Because of its ephemeral materiality, scent will be one of the main topics of this three day conference crossing between various disciplines, professions and ways of thinking.
