“Unity Of Knowledge – Scrapbook from the Niels Bohr Institute” is aimed at curious people of all ages who enjoy exploring life in research and science at this world-famous physics institution.
With contemporary colour photographs, old black-and-white pictures from the Niels Bohr Archive, quotes and collages, the book intends to illustrate the curiosity and openness towards the unknown which has continued to prevail at the Institute since it was established in 1921.
Sculptor Rikke Raben has been part of the Institute’s daily life for a decade, and she invited photographer Anne Prytz Schaldemose along; they, together with the Institute, invited Peter Høeg to join them. This book is primarily a reflection of these meetings but also serves as an unchronological historical document.
Throughout the 100-year history of the Institute, a continuous flow of people from all over the world has contributed to the creation and further development of great scientific ideas, ideas leading to innovations, knowledge and technological developments that are now part of our everyday lives.
To this day, the activities taking place at the Institute are characterized by curiosity, openness and cooperation; as such it is a place built upon the belief that we accomplish more and achieve better results through collaboration and knowledge sharing – through the UNITY OF KNOWLEDGE.
