Friedrich Dürrenmatt, famous Swiss author and dramatist once said: "In science, there is the unity, in art the diversity of the mystery we call the world."

And that is indeed true. Science and art seem to be two highly complex, but fascinating counterparts. This contrast creates unimagined new perspectives on both scientific as well as artistic content.That is why we introduced the Scientific Image Contest that became a very successful and enlightening tradition in the past years.
