The Institut

The Institute for Uncertain Knowledge IUK Berlin is a non-profit undertaking that approaches the phenomenon of “Uncertain Knowledge“ in science and society from an artistic angle, and produces knowledge about uncertainty.

In this framework the artist Svenja Schüffler simultanously creates and contests new practices and aesthetics of alarming, preventing or preserving, as artistic concepts (and thought experiments), installations and drawing projects. Such as on earthquake risk, collective future forecasting, early warning systems or risk management. To analyze and exchange global threats and risks in new ways.

Together with a group of authors from different scientific disciplines such as Anne Schreiber and Gregor Kanitz, IUK also publishes essays and realises lectures and performances on the uncertainy of knowledge.
