Exhibition: Max Planck Images of Science @ Goethe Pop Up Seattle
Feb 4 @ 12:00 PM – Mar 6 @ 6:00 PM

Stop by Goethe Pop Up Seattle to see Max Planck Images of Science, striking images captured from scientific research at some of the Max Planck Society’s institutions. Free & open to the public.

Science often pushes back the boundaries of the known world to explore new topics and make the invisible visible. In the process of this work, a purely scientific documentation of research objects is created. And sometimes these images feature surprising aesthetic forms and structures. They are abstract works of art from a world normally hidden to the human eye.

Each year, scientists from more than 80 research institutes of the Max Planck Society enter images showcasing their work from the most various research fields. The most spectacular images form the basis of a travelling exhibit, which has been shown with great success in a variety of locations around the world, such as the Deutsches Museum in Munich, the ars electronica in Linz/Austria, the Frost Museum of Science in Miami, the National Library of Russia in St. Petersburg, and the German Science Centre in Cairo.

In Seattle Images of Science is a collaboration between the Max Planck Society, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, and the Goethe Pop Up Seattle.

Children’s Film Festival Seattle: “Rocca Changes the World” Film Screening @ Northwest Film Forum
Mar 1 @ 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Goethe Pop Up Seattle is again partnering with the Children’s Film Festival Seattle to present this year’s selection of German-language films for kids.

** Filmmaker Katja Benrath in attendance! **

11-year-old Rocca is a clever, creative, and brave girl who lives all by herself in defiance of her teachers and the authorities — why not, since her astronaut father taught her everything she knows? But Rocca must fight to keep her independence and prove to everyone that a child also has the power to change the world.

This film is recommended for kids ages 8+ who can read English subtitles, but younger German speakers will also enjoy the film.
