From Pussy Riot and Notre Dame to music in the concentration camp, experts discussed at a Science Talk from the Ministry of Education whether art has the potential to make the world a better place.

Prof. Helmut Leder (General Psychology - Psychology of Empirical Aesthetics/EVA-Lab) was part of the podium.
