As an interdisciplinary institute, IIASA researchers are used to working across disciplinary boundaries. As a policy-focused research center, IIASA is regularly in contact with policymakers and stakeholders. Yet it is rare even in an institute like IIASA to reach outside the walls of science and policy into other areas of society like the arts, even though much could be gained from such interactions.
Art and science are both based on the ability to imagine, inventing new methods and drawing connections to elucidate complex topics. For that reason, IIASA has launched partnerships with talented artists. We hope that these partnerships will also spark new ideas in both art and science, leading to new innovations and solutions to the problems the planet faces today.
Systems analysis is a problem-solving process that seeks to understand individual elements, and how they might interact, while accounting for the system as a whole. This brochure explores the role art can play in this process, and how it might contribute to a global transformation to sustainability.
