Dieses Buch berichtet über die Bündelung der Kreativitätsmotoren Wissenschaft und Kunst und wie daraus ein lebendiges Dreigespann aus Wissenschaft, Kunst und Gesellschaft geschmiedet werden kann. Eine schöpferische Triade, die sich über einen Zeitraum von zwei Jahren hinweg gemeinsam der Utopie verschrieben hat, eine Synthese aus nachhaltiger Wirtschaft, gesunder Umwelt und einer gerechten Gesellschaft zu ermöglichen. Das Projekt Mind the Fungi („Achtung Pilze“) ist ein Citizen-Science-Forschungsvorhaben, welches aus der Kooperation der Fachgebiete für Angewandte und Molekulare Mikrobiologie und Bioverfahrenstechnik der TU Berlin sowie der Kunst- und Forschungsplattform Art Laboratory Berlin entstand und welches Bürger_innen die Möglichkeit einer wissenschaftlichen Mitarbeit ermöglichen sollte. Das Projekt sollte einerseits einem breiten Publikum die Bedeutung der Pilzbiotechnologie für eine nachhaltige Zukunft näherbringen und andererseits hier an der TU Berlin ein Forschungsnetzwerk aufbauen, in dem unter anderem mit Citizen Scientists neuartige pilzbasierte Biomaterialien erforscht werden sollten. Die wissenschaftlichen und künstlerischen Wege im Mind-the-Fungi-Projekt, die wir gemeinsam mit der Öffentlichkeit von 2018 bis 2020 gegangen sind, so auch die Art & Design Residencies, können jetzt mit diesem Buch in Texten und Bildern nachverfolgt werden. This book reports on the bundling of the creativity engines science and art and how a living triad of science, art and society can be forged from this. A creative triad, which over a period of two years has jointly committed itself to the utopia of enabling a synthesis of sustainable economy, healthy environment and a just society. The project Mind the Fungi (“Achtung Pilze”) is a Citizen Science research project, which resulted from the cooperation of the Departments of Applied and Molecular Microbiology and Bioprocess Engineering of the TU Berlin and the art and research platform Art Laboratory Berlin. It was intended to provide citizens with an opportunity for scientific collaboration. On the one hand, the project was intended to give a broad public an understanding of the importance of fungal biotechnology for a sustainable future and, on the other hand, to establish a research network here at the TU Berlin, in which, among other things, novel fungus-based biomaterials were to be researched with Citizen Scientists. The scientific and artistic paths in the Mind-the-Fungi project, which we followed together with the public from 2018 to 2020, including the Art &Design Residencies, can now be traced in text and images in this book.

For a scientist committed to empirical evaluation, it is important to show that materials can be helpful outside the context of a therapeutic relationship, so, generally speaking, we know that a book like this is likely to be helpful. Several of the specific components in this book have been tested,
