An Interdisciplinary Conference at the
University of Vienna on Science and Art


We are conscious and unconscious in sleep and wakefulness.
Here we think and dream, create and interpret.
Is the concept of consciousness a substrate to help us
understand these processes in biology, psychology, medicine,
philosophy and art?
This conference shall address these issues by dissecting
consciousness with four questions about:
the neurobiology of the phenomenon with regard to content and expression;
its relationship with unconsciousness and self;

its contribution to art and creativity, and finally
its expression in health and disease.
