The mLAB is an experimental space that encourages researchers and students to test new forms of transdisciplinary collaboration. The aim is to make new media, art and digital technologies an integral part of research activities, to reflect on them critically and to develop unorthodox coalitions of aesthetics and geography. Besides making research results visible for a non-academic public, the focus is also on sensorial routes of knowledge creation.
The mLAB was initiated by the units Critical Sustainibility Studies and Social and Cultural Geography and is currently run by the artist Mirko Winkel. It comprises a large team of scholars and is open to the entire Institute of Geography and beyond.
