Kunstplanbau has established a meeting place - a Floating Area - for religion, science and art. KPB interprets this Floating Area as a complementary model that contributes to the blossoming of interreligious, intercultural dialogue. Since 2012, the event series "Aesthetics of the Religious Encounter" has dealt with the phenomenon and mystery of human perception with regard to the religious. Year after year, the focus in each case is on a sensory organ or faculty that connects humans to the world. On the one hand, it is about the description, visualization and exploration of individual religious, aesthetic and artistic experience, but on the other hand, it is about the connection of these experiences in an inter-religious dialogue. Thus, the project is not only committed to its subject matter, but also places the current social and political necessity of plurireligious coexistence at the center of consideration. The religious scholars, artists and scientists open up spaces and in doing so encounter an audience with foreign habits of perception and differing aesthetic imprints. The series takes place with lectures, poetics lecture, Bhagavad Gita readings, workshops, interreligious image viewing in the museum, interreligious encounter, artistic symposium at the Theological Faculty of the Humboldt University of Berlin and in the urban space.

The annual themes are and were: 2021 SPIRITUALITY Healing 2020 SPIRITUALITY Feeling 2019 SPIRIT Thinking. 2018 HEART Feeling. 2017 Smell. 2016 SPIRIT Tasting. 2015 BODY Touching. 2014 IMAGE Seeing. 2013 SOUND Hearing. 2012 WORD Speaking.
