Starting in January 2021, the New York artist Anton Ginzburg will begin his six-month residency at Technische Universität Dresden as the second fellowship recipient in the Schaufler Lab@TU Dresden’s artist-in-residence programme. Together with early-career researchers at the Schaufler Kolleg@TU Dresden and through exchange with various university faculties, he will explore the lab’s first main research topic 'Artificial intelligence as factor and consequence of societal and cultural change'.
THE SCHAUFLER FOUNDATION supports the further training of vocational school teachers and trainers in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry. In cooperation with the BIV – Bundesinnungsverband des Deutschen Kälteanlagenbauerhandwerks (Federal professional association of German refrigeration plant mechanics), TSF provides training vouchers for seminars and trainings. Recently, the first pilot training event took place. Based on the experiences gained as well as the participants’ feedback, future training content will be tailored to the teachers’ needs.
Since the relocation of BITZER to the new company headquarters in July 2019, the building of the old head office in Sindelfingen has remained empty. The museum, however, needs additional space for storage and logistics of the extensive art collection of the constantly growing Schaufler Collection. Currently, a large part of the art collection is stored with an external logistics service provider and is thus not accessible to the curators. For the optimal preservation of the Schaufler Collection, the new art storage facility is now being built on the space that has become available in the direct vicinity of the museum. It is designed to meet the needs of the artworks and exhibition organisers.
