University of Greifswald re-opens application for Rudolf-Stundl-Award for Textile Art

17.04.2014

The Rudolf-Stundl-Foundation at the University of Greifswald has opened the competition for the 2014 Rudolf-Stundl-Award for Textile Arts. The prize is awarded for outstanding academic and artistic work related to textiles or neighbouring fields of material culture. The foundation board extended the applica-tion deadline for the award of 700 Euro until 31st December 2014. The contest will be held every four years and accepts submissions from all members of the University of Greifswald as well as the 26 international partner universities.

Rudolf Stundl (1897 – 1990), the initiator of artisan rug making in the Region of Western Pomerania, founded the award in 1985. The competition seeks to advance the academic discourse on the topic of textiles.

The spectrum of possible contributions ranges from works of art using textiles to research on historical, art historical, technical or economic aspects of textiles and their production.

Contributions may also address artefacts of material culture and items from university collections, where these relate to textiles and their production. Work on the connections between textiles and overarching issues such as marketing, communication, ecology and digital media may also be submitted.

The contest for the Rudolf-Stundl-Award is held for the first time in nineteen years. In 2013 the charter of the Stundl-Foundation was revised and a new foundation board was elected. Keeping in mind the original intention of the founder (Rudolf Stundl), the new board updated the focus and framework of the prize. For the first time, not only members of the University of Greifswald are able to enter the competition.

In order to strengthen international partnerships, submissions will be accepted from members of all 26 partner universities in North and South America, Australia, South-East-Asia, Japan as well as Northern and Eastern Europe.

The artwork has to be submitted to the head of the Academic Art Collection, Dr. Birgit Dahlenburg, until 31st December 2014. All applicants must provide proof of intellectual property over the submitted item(s).

Im Focus: OU astrophysicist and collaborators find supermassive black holes in quasar nearest Earth

A University of Oklahoma astrophysicist and his Chinese collaborator have found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, the nearest quasar to Earth, using observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

The discovery of two supermassive black holes--one larger one and a second, smaller one--are evidence of a binary black hole and suggests that supermassive...

Im Focus: What would a tsunami in the Mediterranean look like?

A team of European researchers have developed a model to simulate the impact of tsunamis generated by earthquakes and applied it to the Eastern Mediterranean. The results show how tsunami waves could hit and inundate coastal areas in southern Italy and Greece. The study is published today (27 August) in Ocean Science, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).

Though not as frequent as in the Pacific and Indian oceans, tsunamis also occur in the Mediterranean, mainly due to earthquakes generated when the African...

Im Focus: Self-healing landscape: landslides after earthquake

In mountainous regions earthquakes often cause strong landslides, which can be exacerbated by heavy rain. However, after an initial increase, the frequency of these mass wasting events, often enormous and dangerous, declines, in fact independently of meteorological events and aftershocks.

These new findings are presented by a German-Franco-Japanese team of geoscientists in the current issue of the journal Geology, under the lead of the GFZ...

Im Focus: FIC Proteins Send Bacteria Into Hibernation

Bacteria do not cease to amaze us with their survival strategies. A research team from the University of Basel's Biozentrum has now discovered how bacteria enter a sleep mode using a so-called FIC toxin. In the current issue of “Cell Reports”, the scientists describe the mechanism of action and also explain why their discovery provides new insights into the evolution of pathogens.

For many poisons there are antidotes which neutralize their toxic effect. Toxin-antitoxin systems in bacteria work in a similar manner: As long as a cell...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer IPA develops prototype of intelligent care cart

It comes when called, bringing care utensils with it and recording how they are used: Fraunhofer IPA is developing an intelligent care cart that provides care staff with physical and informational support in their day-to-day work. The scientists at Fraunhofer IPA have now completed a first prototype. In doing so, they are continuing in their efforts to improve working conditions in the care sector and are developing solutions designed to address the challenges of demographic change.

Technical assistance systems can improve the difficult working conditions in residential nursing homes and hospitals by helping the staff in their work and...
